The former Director-General, Small and Medium Enterprises Development Agency (SMEDAN), Alhaji Bature Masari and hundreds of his supporters have defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Masari, a nephew to Gov. Aminu Masari, served as campaign Director-General of the PDP gubernatorial candidate, Musa Nashuni in the 2015 election.
Masari and hundreds of his supporters were received by Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari at the Government House Katsina on Thursday, the news Agency of Nigeria, NAN reports.
Gov. Masari speaking as he welcomed the new party members, said that he would remain a father to people of the state irrespective of their political affiliation or religious differences.
He said the defection of his nephew and his supporters was a victory to APC in the state and urged them to ensure the victory of the party in 2019.
“They decided to join APC because of the quality leadership being offered by us. We assure you of our readiness to build the party and ensure its victory in 2019 general elections,” Masari said.
