The Honourable representing Sandamu/Daura/Maiaduwa Local Government, Fatuhu Muhammad, has dumped the ruling All Progressives Congress.
Although unconfirmed reports suggested that the lawmaker has joined the Peoples Democratic Party to the opposition PDP, the resignation of the membership of Muhammad who is a nephew to the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari(retd) confirmed in a letter addressed to the ward chairman of Sarkin Yara A ward in Daura.
Muhammed, a son of the late elder brother to President Muhammadu said his resignation from the party takes immediate effect.
“This is to notify you that I have resigned my membership from the All Progressives Congress (APC) with immediate effect commencing from Wednesday the 13th day of July, 2022,” he wrote.
“Attached herewith is my Party Membership Registration slip with slip No.KT/DRA/10/00002, while I thank you and the Party for the opportunity given to me to serve the interest of the people of Daura/Sandamu/Mai’Adua federal constituency while working with the party, accept my best wishes please.”
Although he didn’t disclose the reason for his action, Premium Politics reported that Muhammad had threatened to dump the party after losing a primary to Aminu Jamo who polled 117 votes against Nuhammud’s 30 votes.
