Kano Assembly Deputy Speaker Dumps APC

Again, Kano State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC has lost another top party member, Zubairu Hamza Massu, Naija News reports.

Massu who is the Deputy Speaker of the State House of Assembly, confirmed his membership withdrawal in a letter addressed to the APC ward chairman in Massu town.

Stating his reason for dumping the ruling party, the deputy speaker said he could no longer tolerate the unjust treatment, inadequate internal democracy and total marginalization of Kano south.

With Massu’s defection, APC has now lost a total of four House of Assembly members within three days, Naija News understands.

The ruling party has witnessed a wave of defections lately since Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje anointed Nasiru Gawuna, his deputy, to succeed him.

Members of the APC from Kano South are reportedly not happy with the endorsement of Gawuna and Murtala Garo, from Kano central and Kano north, in the 2023 elections.

Naija News understands that Massu is representing Sumaila Local Government from Kano South in the assembly.

The politician is, however, yet to speak on his next political movement but has said that his resignation from APC came after a series of consultations with his constituents and supporters about the recent happenings in their party.

He said: “Following the recent happening in the party coupled with a series of consultations with my constituents, supporters and stakeholders in Sumaila and Kano North in general, I write to notify you of my intention and decision to resign as a member of APC.

“The decision is mainly due to unjust treatment, inadequate internal democracy and total marginalization of Kano south from a lot of opportunities,” the letter read in part.
