By Mohammad Ibrahim

Kaduna (Nigeria) – Nigeria’s Vice President-Elect, Yemi Osinbajo has received over 5000 members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who decamped to All Peoples Congress (APC) in Southern Kaduna, Northwest Nigeria.

Speaking during a meeting with leadership of churches in Southern Kaduna Senatorial District, Osinbanjo blamed PDP for doing great harm to the Nigerian nation using religion and playing divisive politics, adding that only righteousness will redeem Nigeria and not manipulation of religion for political power.

“I am here to say that only righteousness exalts a nation, the people of Southern Kaduna must rise up and ensure that manipulators of religion are defeated. What Nigerians need is nothing but a government that will make necessary sacrifice for peace and development of the country.

“When I was nominated as running mate, many criticized me that why will I agree to pair an with extremist?

“We all know it is manipulation, Buhari never participated in any thing related to extremism.

“It was purely blackmail and at the end the truth is out. I urged the people here to be firm and stand for what will bring about common good,” he said.

According to Osinbajo, if Nigerians don’t stand up to kill corruption, the menace will kill the country and collapse its weak institutions.

Kaduna State APC governorship candidate, Malam Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai said “I am pleased with the people of Southern Kaduna because we did well during the presidential election, the results clearly shows that PDP is being wiped out of Southern Kaduna and the entire state.

Prominent among the decapees are Maj Gen. S.B.S. Biliyock (rtd), a former member of House of Representatives, Hon. Ruth Jummai Ango, former Commissioner and Attorney General in the state, Barrister Zakari A. Sogfa and 114 immediate past councillors from eigh local government areas of the zone.
