THREE-TIME member who represented Nasarawa/Toto federal constituency in the House of Representatives on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Samuel Egya has defected to the All Progressives Congress, APC in Nasarawa state.
Speaking during his defection alongside over 10,000 of his supporters on Friday at the APC state Secretariat in Lafia, Egye said he was attracted to the party by its developmental strides of at both the national and state levels.
He maintained that his decision to decamp with his supporters was taken after wide consultations with critical stakeholders and communities from his constituency.
“Politics is all about development and since the APC-led state government has developed virtually all sectors of the economy, we have seen no need for us to stay outside and criticize unnecessarily”
“Look at the school structures, e-libraries, road network, built by the state government across all the Local Government Areas in the state.
“Anybody who lived in Lafia before 2011 and came back now, would hardly recognized the capital now due to road network and other structures put in place by the government.”
He called on all the well meaning citizens of the state to join hands and support the good work the state government was doing for the peace and progress of the state.
Receiving the decampees the state APC chairman, Philip Shekwo applauded the former law maker for appreciating what the party was doing in the state even from the opposition, adding that their decision was a right step in the right direction.
He commended him adding that, ‘you are not just coming to contest election, but you come in order to contribute to the development of the state.
He therefore assured all the decamping that now they have seen reason and join APC, they would enjoy all privileges just like any other person who has been in the party since 2011.
