Treasurer, All Progressives Congress (APC), Katsina State, Nasiru Usman has dumped the party for Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) alleging maltreatment and injustice.
Usman who decamped alongside other 4,000 APC members in Kankia Local Government Area said the APC had neglected them.
According to him, the party had been hijacked by few executives relegating many to the background.
”I remained suspended for 14 months after which I petitioned to the APC Northwest where it directed for the withdrawal of the suspension, but the state headquarters refused to comply”, he added.
Also speaking, the party’s 2015 gubernatorial candidate, Musa Nashuni, said that PDP as a party had learnt a lot since the last general election and will build on that to bounce back.
On his part, state PDP chairman, Salisu Majigiri assured the new entrants of equal opportunities within the party noting that “we are committed towards reclaiming our lost mandate”.
All efforts to reach APC chairman, Shittu Shittu for response proved abortive.
