The Kaduna State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Monday received Sen. Suleiman Hunkuyi and his supporters in Kaduna. Hunkuyi, who represents Kaduna North in the Senate, was among the 13 APC senators who recently defected to the PDP and other political parties. Hunkuyi was received by the State Chairman of the PDP, Mr Felix Hassan Hyet and other executive members of the party at the Trade Fair Complex, Kaduna.
Hyet urged them to work with the party to take power from the APC in the state come 2019. He claimed Hunkuyi brought APC to power in the state. ”I believe he has realised his mistake and would work hard towards correcting that by helping to send him (the governor) packing from Sir Kashim Ibrahim House,” Hyet said. Hunkuyi who arrived the venue of the event with other defectors was received by a crowd of supporters. He said that PDP is fully back, rebranded and ready to take over power from the ruling party.
However, he claimed he made an error bringing el-Rufai on board in 2015. He begged for forgiveness over the role he played in bringing the APC to power in Kaduna. We came to join hands with our friends to liberate our state from the bondage of APC in Kaduna State. “Let’s join hands with our great party PDP and change things.
The immediate past Governor of the state, Dr. Mukhtar Ramalan Yero and Dr Muhammad Sani Bello who are both seeking the party’s ticket for the governorship seat, were among those who attended the event.
