SENATOR REPRESENTING BUHARI’S DISTRICT DUMPS APC FOR PDP

Senator Ahmed Kaita, representing President Muhammadu Buhari’s Katsina North, has defected from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The senator explained that his defection was due to the “gradual loss of credibility” of Governor Aminu Masari’s administration, and his delay in conducting the local council election.

The statement, signed by his media adviser, Abdulkadir Lawal, also cited the refusal of the Masari-led administration to “uphold the basic foundation of democracy” and the inability to address insecurity and poverty as other reasons for his leaving the APC.

He said: “As a loyal party man and responsive democrat, whose expansive support base in his constituency has remained pivotal to his passion for the reciprocal growth and development of his people, Senator Kaita has followed the recent events in Katsina with keen interest and deep concern.

“Of notable implication among many of these numerous concerns is the gradual loss of credibility in the Governor Masari-led administration, particularly in the avowed refusal to conduct local government elections across the state on time.”

The lawmaker represented Kankia/Ingawa/Kusada federal constituency of Katsina on the platform of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) in 2011. He became senator after the death of Senator Mustapha Bukar, who briefly occupied the seat.
