Breaking News: Lalong’s Associate, Dasun, Crosses to PDP

Must read

Philip Dasun, a prominent figure within the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Plateau State, has officially defected to the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state.

Dasun, formerly the Majority Leader of the Plateau State House of Assembly and a close ally of former Governor Simon Lalong, announced his departure from the APC in a letter addressed to the chairman of his Belnin Ward in Pankshin North.

In the letter dated May 13, 2024, obtained by our Correspondent in Jos on Monday, Dasun cited ideological alignment as his reason for joining the PDP.

He expressed his gratitude to the APC for the opportunities and experiences he had while with the party but emphasized that his political views and objectives had evolved.

Dasun’s letter reads in part, “I write to inform you of my decision to resign from my membership in the APC political party, effective immediately. I have decided to join the PDP, as I believe their ideologies align more closely with my own.

“I want to thank you and the other members of the APC for the opportunities and experiences I have had during my time with the party.

“I appreciate the support and guidance I have received, and I have greatly valued the chance to work alongside such dedicated individuals.

“However, after careful consideration, I have come to realise that my political views and goals have shifted. The PDP is a better fit for my personal and political values, and I believe that I can make a more significant impact by working within their organisation.

“I hope that you understand my decision to resign, and I wish you and the APC all the best in your future endeavours.”

Dasun’s defection marks a significant development in Plateau State politics and could have implications for the upcoming political landscape in the state.
