Senator representing Katsina North dumps APC for PDP


The Senator representing Katsina North Senatorial District, the senatorial zone of President Muhammadu Buhari, Ahmed Babba Kaits, has officially left the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

The Senator made this announcement to the general public on Wednesday.

The announcement brought an end to speculations on local radio stations in Katsina and on social media that the Senator would be switching political parties ahead of the 2023 general elections.

Mr Babba-Kaita was at the PDP secretariat in Katsina on Tuesday afternoon but both the party and the Senator denied that he had gone there to defect.

Mr Babba Kaita’s media aide, Abdulkadir Lawan in a statement to newsmen said, “Senator Ahmad Babba Kaita is not a bandwagon politician.

“His exemplary and robust representation in the Nigerian Senate is to the admiration of all, and with significant, visible impacts in the areas of infrastructural and human capital development across the three Senatorial zones of the state. There is room to do more.

“The fresh page from the decision to join the Peoples’ Democratic Party represents the ideals of representativeness in the mandate, goodwill and an even more determined desire and opportunity to provide succor, comfort and the much-needed dividends of democracy to the people.”

The statement accused Aminu Masari, the governor of the state of not conducting local government elections for more than six years. He said the governor disregarded other stakeholders, disobeyed the foundation of democracy, and hated a level playing ground in party activities.
