Former Transport Minister Abdullahi Idris and some chieftains of the People’s Democratic Party in Gombe state have defected to the All Progressives Congress.
 
Among the defectors are a former Deputy Governor of the state, Lazerus Yoriyo, ex-member of the House of Representatives Saidu Alkali and a former youth leader, Habu Mu’azu.
 
The former minister said that their decision was to bring about positive development to the state.. 

Towards the Ondo State governorship election, some PDP members defected to APC, including the only PDP senator in the state.

The myriads of defections across the country is seen as new trend for politicians to associate with the present central government.
