Three special advisers of Governor Darius lshaku of Taraba State have defected to the All progressive Congress (APC) from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The trio are Audu Ade, Francis Fidelis and Kyauta Shehu Lau.
They have all resigned their appointments.
Their defection comes three days after “more than 50,000” supporters of Peoples Democratic party PDP in southern Taraba senatorial zone defected to APC.
The chairman of APC in the state, Barrister Ibrahim El-Sudi, who received the three special advisers, said the party was gaining more support day by day.
He also revealed that the party had completed all necessary arrangements for the conduct of its congresses.
In his address at the stakeholders’ meeting earlier, the chairman of APC congresses committee in Taraba state, Alhaji Saidu Usman Dakingari, a former Governor of Kebbi, said he and his committee members were in the state to conduct congresses of the party.
He, however, solicited support and cooperation of members of the party to enable the peaceful conduct of congresses.
