Also in Kazurawa Malam Adamu Nakaka who donated his personal property to NNPP headquarters revoked the donation and sacrifice it to APC for another party office to be opened in his hometown.

Proceeding to Balan Town, APC did not only received the decamped members of NNPP only, but the members make sure the Red Caps they wore have been burnt to assure the APC of their pleasure and loyalty to the party in the forthcoming election.
