Saraki’s chief of staff dumps APC, says APC has grossly under-performed
Mr. Ahmed disclosed this while addressing journalist in Kaduna State on Monday. Mr. Ahmed who is a member of the Akida faction of APC which also has senator Shehu Sani as a member said he took the decision after due consultation with the group
He was appointed by the Senate president in 2017. According to him, the decision was a very tough one, but he noted that he took the decision because APC has grossly underperformed during the last three years.
“This statement is to inform the public of my resignation from APC. I have sent a formal letter to this effect to the chairman of my ward.” he noted
“This has been a very difficult decision, to leave a party I helped to form and made my humble contributions to put in power.
“After three years, however, I need to say that the APC has grossly underperformed and has forfeited any claim to my loyalty and continue membership.
“I do not believe in all conscience, that it should be trusted and encouraged to continue to govern our great country beyond 2019.
“I am not leaving to join another party. This is my decision and mine alone. It has nothing to do with the president of the Senate Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki.
“It’s a decision taken after due consultations with Akida Group, a group that has predated my appointment as chief of staff to the President of the Senate.
“I will remain active in politics, as this is the main avenue for salvaging our nation from rising insecurity, poverty and bitter divisions,” he added
