Philip Dasun, a prominent figure within the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Plateau State, has officially switched his allegiance to the ruling Peoples Democratic Party.

He made his defection known in a letter he wrote to his Belnin Ward chairman of the APC in Pankshin North dated May 13, 2024.

Dasun, who previously served as the majority leader in the Plateau State House of Assembly and an ally of former Governor Simon Lalong said he decided to join the ruling PDP because its ideology aligns with his own.

“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,” the letter reads in part.
