Musa Fagengawo, the representative for the Babura/Garki federal seat in Jigawa State, has left the party in power, the All Progressive Congress.
Meanwhile, Bala Kila, the Jigawa State governor’s special adviser on reforestation, switched from the ruling APC to the Peoples Democratic Party.
According to a Tribune report, Fagengawo revealed the information in a letter he wrote and delivered to the APC leader of the Kore ward in the state’s Garki local government area.
He claimed that a series of disagreements that were occurring at every level of the APC led to his choice.
He stated in his letter, “I want to notify that I resigned from the All Progressive Congress (APC) effective February 21, 2023. This is a result of numerous confrontations that occur across the entire party.
In the meanwhile, I applaud the party for giving me the chance to enter a contest on its platform, he continued.
The currently elected representative also declared his switch to the opposition PDP.
The congressman told reporters shortly after being greeted by PDP leaders at the home of the party’s governorship candidate in Dutse, the state’s capital, that his choice was made after extensive deliberation with his constituents.
“I am here because I want to help a friend, we attended the same university, I am here to help the party win the election,” he added.
In the meantime, the special adviser resigned from his assignment as a special adviser in a letter sent to the state governor through the secretary to the state government.
