Speaker of the Bauchi State House of Assembly Rt. Hon. Abubakar Y Suleiman has formally tendered resignation letter from All Progressives Congress (APC).

In a letter addressed to the Chairman of the All Progressive Congress, Guda Ward of Ningi Local Government, the Speaker said that due to the factionalization of the Party at all levels in the State with every factions claiming the leadership of the party, coupled with litigations which led to court orders restraining any faction from claiming the leadership of the party, it becomes difficult for him to determine which of the factional leadership of the Party is legitimate.

He added that this is coming after series of persecution being meted on him and his supporters since his election as Speaker of the Bauchi State House of Assembly in June, 2019 as against the wish of some vested interests in the Party.

The Speaker narrated that; “It’s a well known fact that getting Speakership position has been one of the lifetime dreams of my Emirate, Ningi. People of my Constituency gave me their mandate to represent them and subsequently asked me to pursue their dream of producing Speaker from Ningi. I can’t be bigger than my Constituency and no interest should be superior than that of my constituents. Thus, I pursued the dream of my constituents and as Almighty Allah willed it, we got it against all odds.

“Since my election as Speaker, the Party sidelined me from its activities and meted various forms of persecution on me and my supporters. Despite these, I remained loyal and committed to the Party and continued contributing financially to the Party and attending its functions and meetings even if they didn’t invite me. Sometimes I would only get notice of Party meetings from my Colleagues, but I would still attend.

“It reach to the level that I was removed as the Chairman of the stakeholders of the Party in Ningi Local Government and replaced with someone who barely knows the local government and the Party. Through that, they made sure any Party member loyal to me is edged out from the leadership or mainstream activities of the Party.

“I was called unprintable names by the Party Leaders and Stakeholders for their perception of the harmonious working relationship between the Assembly and the Executive Arm led by His Excellency Senator Bala Abdulkadir Mohammad as a threat to them, their political ambition and the Party. I always tell them, Bauchi State is bigger than any personal interest, unhealthy relationship between the two critical arms of Government would not only halt the development of the State but will affect the well-being of the people and bring instability in the State which will not augur well for all of us. But they ignored this patriotic disposition.

“Just recently, these vested interests in the Party worked against my inclusion as Member of the National Convention Planning Committee in which they made sure my name was removed. I tried my best to draw the attention of the Party leadership and its critical stakeholders to the injustice being done on me and my supporters but one of the major stakeholders talked to my face, that the Party won’t recognize any grievance from me and they resolved not to recognize anything that emanate from me even if it’s a document that contains my signature, because of my relationship with the Executive Governor of Bauchi Senator Bala Abdulkadir Mohammad. It further became clearer to me that I am no longer needed in APC.”

According to the Speaker, there has been intense calls on him from supporters, groups, party stalwarts and constituents to dump the Party due to the realities on grounds, hence he set up a Committee drawn from all parts of Ningi Central Constituency under the chairmanship of Alhaji Bala Gideru to make further consultations and recommendations.

Speaker Abubakar Suleiman further stated that the Committee after series of consultations and review of the situation, recommended that; “we should quit the Party and join the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to consolidate on the unprecedented development being executed in Ningi Local Government and all parts of the State by the Executive Governor of Bauchi State His Excellency Senator Bala Abdulkadir Mohammad”

“Based on the recommendations of the Committee and due to the prevailing situation and the uncertainties and fractionalizations in the Party, I have formally resigned from the All Progressive Congress alongside my thousands of supporters.

“I thank the Party for the opportunity given to me to serve my Constituency and the State in general.” He declared.

Meanwhile, the Speaker obtained a membership card of his new Party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from Guda Ward of Ningi Local Government and pledged to work for the success of the Party at all levels and consolidate on the successes of the adminstration of His Excellency Senator Bala Abdulkadir Mohammad in the State.

The Director General Media to Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri of Adamawa state has said Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri has no hands in the invitation of AA Lawal Uba by security agencies.

According to our sources, the Department of state service (DSS) on Friday invited AA Lawal Uba over his vituperation on the speaker, Adamawa state house of assembly, Aminu Abbas.

In reaction to the invitation by the DSS, the main oppostion party in Adamawa, the All progressive congress (APC) blamed Fintiri for Uba’s travails and accused him of stifling dissenting voices in Adamawa state.

But in a statement issued by the Director General, media and communication, Solomon Kuamangar, today, the Governor’s aide said Fintiri should not be blamed for the travails of the misguided fellow, AA Lawal Uba.

The statement said AA Lawal Uba is a misguided critic who ought to know that the Governor on several fora has reiterated and welcome constructive criticism by anyone he should, however, know the difference between criticism and hauling insults on leaders. He, therefore, has himself to blame and not Fintiri.

Kumangar lambasted the APC as a party seeking relevance in Adamawa to divert attention from the recent dollarized primary that produced a candidate who has set members at daggers drawn at each other.

It is wrong to ckaim impunity where there is none and turn blind eyes to the recent impunity it perpetrated in the recent dollarized APC governorship primary in Adamawa.”

He said, “It is therefore wrong for APC to assume that Fintiri ordered the invitation of AA Lawal Uba by security agencies simply because the victim of injustice is not a man of any stout means.”
Kumangar urged AA Lawal Uba, APC, “to leave Fintiri out of their political travails and allow God’s time and preferences to prevail.”
