House Of Rep Member Dumps APC
A member of the House of Representatives from Kaduna State has dumped the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Adams Jagaba, who represents Kachia/Kagarko constituency in the state, announced his decision while reacting to his suspension from the APC in Kaduna State.
Jagaba, who is the Chairman of House committee on interior, was suspended from the party on Saturday by the state chapter for anti-party activities.
Jagaba, who said he had expected to be expelled from the party, described the APC as sinking.
“APC is a sinking ship and I won’t perish with it.
“I expected dismissal and now suspension. It’s been long I bid them farewell,” the lawmaker said.
“My body language, my utterances, my actions and inactions have demonstrated that I had parted ways with them for a long time. It’s unfortunate that they are not practical scientists to realise it.
He alleged that the APC has shown that the security and welfare of the people is not a priority.
“The electorates are poorer now, Fulani herdsmen have continued to attack and kill my people unabatedly with both the federal and state governments doing nothing.
“The Governor of Kaduna State has continually said, he does not need the votes from Southern Kaduna to win election. He has demonstrated that he values the life of a cow than the lives of Southern Kaduna people.
“So, I can’t stay with them in the same party,” he added.
The lawmaker said he would never beg to return to the APC.
“The power lies with the electorates and not in the hands of a political party,” he said, adding “if they are expecting me to come crawling on my knees to beg them, then they are day-dreaming.”
