A former chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Plateau State, Chief Letep Dabang and a large number of other aggrieved members of the ruling party in the state have resigned their membership of the party to join the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
The group of aggrieved APC members took the decision to move en masse to the PDP at the end of a meeting held in Barkin-Ladi on Wednesday under the aegis of what they called “THE GREAT MOVEMENT.”
A statement issued on Thursday in Jos and signed by Engr. Manji Danladi, said that the meeting of the group which comprises of all the disenchanted members of the APC in the state, was chaired by Dabang.
It disclosed that over 150 representatives of the group’s men and women across the 17 local governments of Plateau State came together and brainstormed on the way forward.
