Duste - Many All Progressives Congress (APC) members have dumped the party and joined the ruling People Democratic Party (PDP) in Jigawa State, reports Daily Post.

The defectors, who in their hundreds stormed the state Government House to formally announce their defection from the APC and their decision to join the PDP, were led by Alhassan Madana.
