A former Director General of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), Mr Mohammed Sidi, has defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Mr Sidi joined the ruling party today along with his supporters in Kaduna State, a day after he announced his exit from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He led other members of his campaign organisation to the Government House in Kaduna, where they were formally received into the party by the State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai.
The former NEMA DG informed the Governor at a meeting that he consulted with his political associates and supporters before arriving at the decision to join the APC.
He explained that his decision was a result of the purposeful leadership that has been displayed by the APC administration in the state.
Mr Sidi assured Governor El-Rufai that he and his supporters would work for the victory of the APC at the polls on March 9.
The Governor, on his part, commended the new members for the bold step they have taken by joining the progressive party.
He also assured them that they would be given equal treatment as other old members of the party.
