The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kaduna State has announced that Senator Caleb Zagi, who represented Southern Kaduna Senatorial District from 2007 to 2011, has formally defected back to APC from the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Zagi, who dumped PDP in 2011 for the opposition, returned to PDP few months ago, before dumping the party for the second time this week.
The publicity secretary of APC in Kaduna State, Dr. Bege Katuka, who confirmed this to journalists in Kaduna, said the leadership has accepted Senator Zagi back in its fold.
Dr. Katuka said: “We have formally received Senator Caleb Zagi back to our party and it is a good development; we are pleased with his return to where things are working.
“Zagi explained deeply that it was a second chance he gave PDP, but on going back to the PDP, the internal democracy mechanism he thought would be addressed was a mirage. The imposition of candidates and outright bending of party rules is still order of the day.
“There is nothing empirical that shows it is development and welfare of Nigerians that is their focus; instead, just power for selfish interests and causing havoc for Nigerians and for all these reasons, we are in the same direction and page.”
The party spokesman also explained that the APC will soon receive prominent members of the ruling party into its fold.
“I can tell you that very soon, other prominent members of the ruling party will join us, it is matter of time and you will see it soon, it is a testimony that we are on course and unstoppable in the state,” he said.
Senator Zagi when contacted confirmed the party’s announcement that he has dumped the party and presently taking part in all APC activities.
