http://www.nigerianbestforum.com/blog/?attachment_id=121756 The former State Organising Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Nasarawa State, Alhaji Iyal Ali Hassan alongside 4,000 other members of the party have defected to the ruling Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) in Keffi Local Government Area of the state .

Alhaji Hassan, who is widely respected in his constituency said the CPC government in the state was exposing the deceptive style of governance by the PDP in the state. He said the eyes of the electorates was now open and cannot be deceived by self-seeking politicians who cash-in on public ignorance of their rights and widespread poverty to perpetuate injustice against the common man in the state.

Presenting their membership cards, the CPC leader in the area, Alhaji (Dr) Hassan Lawan, former Minister of Works and Housing, thanked the new members for their courage  and assured them that the party would carry every one of them along regardless of when they joined the party. He noted further that for Nasarawa State to move forward it needs men and women of great courage and sincerity of purpose to break the old order which has held the state captive for quiet some time.

In his separate remark at the event, a CPC chieftain in the area and Special Adviser to the state governor on Food Security, Alhaji Abubakar Gada Mohammed, said the days of conspiring against the interest of the common man through the use of party machinery are over, adding that 'we shall make sure that no trace of PDP is left in this locality, we must make bold to catch up with other advancing states of the South West and the South South  who have risen against the misrule of the PDP to chart a fruitful future for themselves and their generations'.

He however cautioned Al-makura to stay focused and not lose sight of his transformative agenda in the state saying it is his style of leadership that would continue to attract more followership for the party.
