The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), John Oyegun, has declared the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Katsina state as “dead and buried”.
The chairman made the declaration on Saturday in Katsina during a grand reception organized by the state APC chapter to receive prominent politicians who defected to his party from the PDP.
Oyegun said since hundreds of thousands of PDP members had defected to APC, the party was completely dead and buried.
“Prominent politicians like Sen Idah, Barrister Ya’u Gwajo-Gwajo, a two-time speaker of Katsina House Assembly, and Mr Nura Khalih also a two-time governorship candidate of the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP) have all defected to APC today.
“Now that prominent people and their followers have joined the APC, then, we have the right to declare PDP, APGA, and PDM as dead and buried in the state” he said
Oyegun called on the people of the state to give maximum support to President Buhari to enable him continue in his leadership of the country.
“When the APC administration took over the mantle of leadership in 2015, the Nation Electricity supply was only 3000 megawatts.
“Today, the electricity supply is 7000 megawatts. The country has witnessed an increase of 4000 megawatts, ” he said
Oyegun revealed that the president had used his experience to control insecurity in the country to its barest minimum.
The chairman said that President Buhari had introduced several ways of reducing poverty through giving agriculture and economic empowerment to the people.
