Ahead of Saturday’s election, president- elect, General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd), is to hold a mass rally in Katsina State capital this afternoon.

The rally is to help boost chances of the All Progressives Congress, APC, gubernatorial candidate, Aminu Bello Masari, and other party members contesting for the 34 House of Assembly seats.

This is even as defection of prominent politicians has hit the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, as several members of the party have ditched it for the APC.

Those who defected early this week include eight House of Assembly members, and former deputy governor to the late Umaru Musa Yar’Adua, Tukur Jikamshi.

The defected PDP lawmakers include Babangida Nasamu (Katsina), Halilu Ibrahim Kurfi (Dutsinma), Bello Isyaku (Charanchi), Rabiu Ahmed (Kaita), Abdullahi Shuaibu (Danja), Barau Dankanjiba (Kafur), Audu Danshehu (Matazu), and Mudashiru Mahdi (Kusada).

Others include the state’s Commissioner for Lands and Survey, Nasidi Baure, Ambassador Saidu Adamu Daura, Haruna Dogo Namaraye, Kabir Royal, and Haruna Gyarta.

APC’s publicity secretary, Shitu Shitu, who confirmed the defection, said already the party has welcomed them and plans a massive reception for them today when Buhari would be in the state.

He said more PDP members have “indicated willingness to join the APC given its popularity and acceptability,” adding that the party was “always ready to accommodate new members”.

After the rally, General Buhari is expected to travel to his hometown in Daura Local Government Council Area in preparation for the April 11 governorship and state assembly polls.
