The governing All Progressives Congress, APC, in Kaduna, has lost another prominent member. He recently resigned his membership of the party.
Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed, a senior party member in Kaduna, was a member of the House of Representatives from 2003 to 2007.
He was also elected a Senator on the platform of the Congress For Progressive Change, CPC, in 2011 when he defeated two-time Kaduna governor, Ahmed Makarfi.
Baba-Ahmed in a hand-written letter, informed the Chairman of Tudun Wada ward in Zaria Local Government of his decision to resign his membership of the APC.
He also said that he decided to leave the APC because “Buhari’s government is incompetent and corrupt”.
Asked about the government’s effort to check corruption in Nigeria, Baba-Ahmed said “the government is lying”.
“The government of Buhari was established by looted funds and over 80 per cent are from the PDP, his so called fight against corruption is a ruse,” he said.
