From EVELYN DADU, Abuja
The All Progressives Congress (APC), has denied the allegation of mass defection of its members to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Zamfara as alleged by the State Government.
Gov. Bello Matawalle and the state’s PDP executives had on Sunday received a large number of defectors from the APC in Maradun Local Government Area (LGA) of the state.
But the state APC Chairman Alhaji Lawal Liman told newsmen today in Gusau that the whole story was a propaganda.
According to Liman, “It is mere propaganda aimed at deceiving the public. “Some media organisations, reported that 21, 000 APC members defected to PDP while others said they were 50,000, we don’t know which one is true, let them clear this figure first,” he emphasized.
He accused the PDP-led administration in Zamfara state of intimidating and forcing APC members to join their political party.
