Without wasting much of your time, the two high-ranked and important officials of the party (PDP) that defected to the APC are:

1. The State Deputy Chairman of the People's Democratic Party, Alhaji Usman Amale

2. Malam Ahmadu Biriri, who was the party's Assistant Secretary.

In my opinion, I think the reason they may have dumped the PDP may be due to the leadership crisis affecting the party. The flaw of crisis had been a big issue to the PDP, causing most of its important members to decamp from the party.

It was gathered that the defectors were received by Governor Mai Mala Buni on Tuesday in Damaturu, the capital city of Yobe State.

He also assured the defectors of equal rights and opportunities like any other member, to contribute to the development of Nigeria.

Speaking on behalf of the defectors, the PDP deputy chairman said they do not have an option remaining in the PDP and apologised for not joining the APC sooner.

The defected PDP members therefore, commended President Muhammadu Buhari for his selfless contribution to the growth and development of the country, stressing that the President's good works made them very proud and they are obligated to supporting him.
