The Secretary of the party in the state, Alhaji Sifiyanu Bala, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Birnin Kebbi that all the contestants emerged through direct primaries.
“We have submitted the list of our candidates for the national assembly and state house of assembly preparatory to 2019 general elections,’’ he said.
Bala said that the party is expecting over 500 defectors from All Progressive Congress (APC).
“We will receive defectors from APC to our great party, the defectors from Kebbi North, Centre and South will join the fold of the ADC,’’ he said.
