Similarly, the member of the state House of Assembly representing Kudan state constituency, Junaid Yakubu also decamped from the APC and pitched his tent with the PDP.
In separate letters to their local governments chairmen, the law makers said the APC was no longer convenient for them to serve the interest of their people.
In his letter, the Deputy Speaker, John Audu said: “I write to withdraw my membership of the All Progressives Congress with effect from today, 7th August 2018.
“This becomes imperatives in view of the draconian leadership of the party at the state level and the local government level as well. I feel I will not serve the interest of the people in my constituency under the said leadership.
“This decision was arrived at after due consultation with my people who I have sworn to protect their interest under the party.
“Please, accept my assurances of my best regards.”
Similarly, in his letter, Junaid Yakubu said he was also leaving the APV because of the “draconian leadership” of the party at the state level.
