Former Ambassador to South Africa, Hon. Musa Ibeto, on Saturday led former governorship aspirants of the Peoples Democratic Party in Niger State to the All Progressives Congress.
It should be recalled that the former Deputy Governor had resigned his appointment as Nigeria’s Ambassador to South Africa and defected to the PDP to contest for the governorship ticket but lost to Hon. Umar Nasko.
Ibeto, a former Deputy Governor of Niger State, and other defectors were received by the APC Deputy National Chairman during the APC governorship campaign flag off at the Trade Fair Complex in Minna.
Among the defectors were Alhaji Mohammed Baka, Alhaji Hannafi Sudan and Alhaji Dogo Koli, all aspirants in the PDP governorship primaries.
Addressing the crowd, Ibeto said: “We have returned home.
He promised to work for the success of the party in the forthcoming elections.
He said: “We will work to ensure the overwhelming success of APC in February and March elections.
“Just as we did in the past, we will repeat the success.
“Niger State will be captured by APC.”
In his address, the Niger State Governor, Alhaji Abubakar Sani Bello, promised to continue the work he started in the state.
