The party Governorship candidate in the state, Alhaji Sani Abdullahi made the allegation in an interview with newsmen in Gusau on Wednesday.

Abdullahi said his party had embarked on sensitization campaign against electoral violence and sales of PVCs to ensure that people give mandate to right candidates.

He said APGA had received over 5, 000 people who had decamped mainly from the People Democratic Party (PDP) and All Progressives Congress (APC), adding the party was getting wider acceptance in its struggle to bring good governance to the state.
