The former presidential candidate of the defunct Advanced People’s Democratic Alliance (APDA), Alhaji Mohammed Shittu has officially defected to the All Progressives Congress.

He joined the ruling party as he registered at his Gwagwa Ward in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja.

Speaking about his defection, he said;

He said;

“From today, we are joining to build a strong political party that will build a strong economy and a peaceful country.

I’m appealing to Nigerians that a two-party system should now be entrenched in our constitution for us to build a strong nation.

For the growth of this country, political parties have to come together. So, we have decided today that we are collapsing into APC to build a strong nation.

APC has brought the agenda for change and now we believe that it is time that the forces that want this country to grow must come together.”
