Nine ward chairmen and about 700 members of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) in Kaduna have decamped to the Labour Party (LP).
Ekene Abubakar Adams, the member representing Chikun/Kajuru Federal Constituency in the state, and the Northwest Chairman of LP, Umaru Mohammadu, on Thursday received the decampees in Kaduna.
The decampees are from Kujama, Narayi, Sabon-Tasha, Kakau, Sabon-Gari Rido, Nasarawa, Gwagwada and Yelwa wards.
Ekene, with other LP chieftains, while receiving them at his constituency office, said they had taken the right decision given the rising profile of the party in the state.
“More stakeholders from different political parties will have no choice but to come into the party considering the good representation we have seen so far. History is about to be made in Kaduna and the nation because the Labour Party is a movement which is set to present a benchmark for good governance and take over the reins of power for the benefit of all,” he said.
The Kujama Ward Chairman, Mr. Nuhu Aruwa, said he was proud to associate with the party.
The Rido Ward Women Leader, Firdausi George, said they would do everything humanly possible to contribute their quota to the growth of the party.
