- Their decision was based on the purposeful leadership style of Governor Mohammed Umar Bago.
- Alh Aminu Musa Bobi, APC’s state chairman, announced the creation of a database for all political appointees in the state to ensure accountability and accessibility to the grassroots.
Ahmed Musa Ibeto, a former deputy governor of Niger state and ambassador of Nigeria to South Africa, along with two other prominent members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have left the party to join the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
The other two politicians that defected from the PDP to the APC were Ibrahim Egbo, a former member of the House of Representatives who served the Lapai Agaie federal seat, and Alhaji Abubakar Azozo, a former commissioner of water resources for Niger State.
Ibeto made his decision, along with the other two, at the state APC secretariat in Minna, basing it on Governor Mohammed Umar Bago’s deliberate leadership style.
“APC is my home and I have returned home. There are many other people, including their followers from other political parties, that are on their way to APC,” he disclosed.

When asked if his decision was monetary or political appointment-induced, Ibeto said: “My decision was based on my personal conviction because all the problems that forced me out of APC before are no longer there in the current administration of Mohammed Umar Bago.”
The state chairman of APC, Alh Aminu Musa Bobi, further disclosed that the party has started compiling a database for all political appointees in the state to make them accountable and accessible to their people at the grassroots level.
