Kaduna Deputy Speaker, One Other Dump APC



The deputy speaker, Kaduna State House of Assembly, John Audu Kwaturu and Junaidu Yakubu, a member representing Kudan constituency, have defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Kwaturu, who confirmed his defection in a telephone interview yesterday, said he had since submitted his letter of withdrawal of membership from the APC to his Kwataru ward in Kachia local government area of the state.

“I have left APC for the PDP, my reasons for leaving the APC are stated in the letter to my Kwataru ward.

“It will interest you to know that even my ward chairman has left the APC”, he said.

Yakubu, however, announced his defection in a letter dated August 7, 2018 and addressed to the APC ward chairman in Hunkuyi Ward, Kudan Local government area of Kaduna State.

In his letter of “Withdrawal of membership from the APC,” Yakubu said his decision to leave was informed by the fact that the leadership of the party at the state and local government levels had become draconian.

“I write to withdraw my membership of the APC with effect from today, August 7, 2018. This becomes imperative in view of the draconian leadership of the party at state level and the local government level as well. I feel I will not serve the interest of the people in my constituency under the said leadership”, Yakubu stated in his letter.

He added that the decision was taken after consultations with the people in his constituency.

Meanwhile, a competent source has said that six more lawmakers from the Kaduna State House of Assembly are also on their way out of the APC and are expected to make a formal announcement on their defection next week.

Senator Suleiman Hunkuyi, representing Kaduna north senatorial district and Isa Ashiru, a two-term House of Representatives member, were among several key members of the APC that recently defected to the PDP along with their supporters.
