A leading member of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in Bauchi, Mohammed Hamma Misau, has announced his resignation from the party.
The former policeman who served as senator in the 8th Senate, withdrew his support to join the rulling All Progressives Congress, APC, months after a former Speaker of the House of Representative departed from the PDP.
Yakubu Dogara who decamped to the opposition from the APC, returned to the ruling party, weakening the Bauchi Governor, Bala Mohammed, that is a member of the PDP.
Senator Misau who meet with MaiMala Buni, the APC Caretaker National Chairman and also the Yobe state governor, said the move from the PDP to the ruling party is to salvage the state.
He said: “We’ve been having a series of meetings and by the grace of God, I have moved to the APC to join my brother, Yakubu Dogara. “You know, for the past two months, we have been talking about leaving PDP because, as you know, all politics is local and this is what my people want.
“We can’t fold our hands and watch as governance in the state is going from bad to worse. If we stay in PDP in Bauchi state, people will think that we’re part of the government. We have to move so that we will salvage what’s left.
“Actually, we have been consulting for over two months regarding this issue. In 2023, we are going to put somebody that will listen to us. In Bauchi central alone, I am moving with more than 50,000 people to the APC. “Regarding 2023, I want to do the will of my people first, when the time comes, they will decide what they want me to do.”
