Ex-Reps Member Dumps APC, Says Atiku To Leave Soon

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar

A former member of the House of Representatives Bala Baiko has dumped the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Speaking to newsmen at the weekend, he said former Vice President Atiku Abubakar will soon return to the PDP.

Atiku recently said he had been pushed to the corner by the President Muhammadu Buhari government which he said he helped into power in 2015.

Baiko, who was elected to the House of Representatives in 2003, under the defunct All Peoples Party (APP), said he and his followers were only remembered during elections.

He told Premium Times that: ”As everyone knows, party politics is all about making members feel he belongs by including them in active governance.

”But in our case, no one remembers us after we helped in bringing the government and what do you think we will be doing in this kind of party?”

The former Reps. member said he and over 20,000 supporters across Kano were defecting to help the PDP win all the forthcoming elections in the state.
