An ex-lawmaker, who represented Fune Constituency at the State Assembly, Abdu Zoto, who led the defectors, said, PDP in Yobe State is embroiled in crisis, hence the determination and collective decision of the defectors to dump PDP for APC.

He advised them to work for the success of APC in the upcoming local government election in Yobe State slated for 5th December.
