The former PDP members in Bauchi State were received by an APC chieftain in the state and former Minister of Police Affairs, Dr Ibrahim Lame.
Speaking to newsmen shortly after the ceremony, the leader of the group, Alhaji Abubakar Doma explained that the development was aimed at ensuring justice and fairness in the country.
