“Ngillari decamped to APC after a long consultation and he joined the progressive party with thousands of his supporters.

“He told me verbatim that his coming to APC was not to look for any position but to enjoy freedom of political aspiration.”

The chairman said the APC leadership at state and national levels had concluded plans to officially receive the former governor and his supporters soon.

He added that the APC executive committee in the state was in contact with the party’s national caretaker committee ahead of the 2023 general elections.
