Deputy Speaker of the Kaduna State House of Assembly, Isaac Auta Zankai, and a member of the state assembly, Suleiman Dabo, have defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Labour Party (LP).

The Deputy Speaker is representing the Kauru state constituency in the state Assembly.

PUNCH reports that the National Secretary of the Labour Party and Chairman of the governorship Council, Umar Farouk Ibrahim, made the announcement while inaugurating the party’s 450-member Governorship Campaign Council and the unveiling of its manifesto in Kaduna on Thursday.

It further informs that Ibrahim boasted that half of the state House of Assembly members were “Obi-Datti” apostles, noting that the support received from the calibre of personalities in the state, was an indication that the party was on the march to taking over political power both in the state and the national levels in the forthcoming general elections.

“sincerely speaking, today is one of the happiest moments in my life. I have gone around to campaign for our presidential candidate, Peter Obi and I have received great receptions.

“I am particularly impressed by the calibres of personalities that grace this inauguration. In the entire northern states, we don’t have any personality that dumps APC and join Labour Party except in Kaduna State with the Deputy Speaker and another member from Zaria state constituency,” Ibrahim quoted by PUNCH.
