Mantu’s son joins APC

JOS- Umar Mantu, the son of former Deputy Senate President,  Ibrahim Mantu, has defected from Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to All Progressives Congress (APC).

A statement by Plateau APC Publicity Secretary, Mr Sylvanus Namang on Sunday,  said that Umar officially joined the APC at his Chanso Ward in Mangu Local Government Area (LGA) of the  state.

He said that the legal practitioner defected with over 20, 000 PDP supporters from Mangu and Bokkos LGAs.

“The young and charismatic politician who is in his  30s, said he joined the APC due to the need to be  in the right place to contribute my qouta to the growth of democracy.

“My coming into the APC would add value to the party as I would actively play my role to ensure victory for the party from top to bottom in the 2023 general elections,” he said.

Malam Sadak Zakari, the APC Chanso ward chairman, who received Umar, expressed delight over the development.

Zakari said the defection would enhance the fortunes of APC in Chanso Ward, Pyem Chiefdom, Mangu LGA and Plateau at large, given the statue of defector.

The state’s Commissioner for Environment, Mr Elisha Shehu who also hailed from Chanso ward, commended Umar for taking the wise decision of dumping PDP for APC.

The commisioner said that given his antecedents in PDP, his joining the APC was a sure victory for APC at all levels, as he brought his political wizardry, experience and passion into the party (NAN)
