Two members of the Bauchi State House of Assembly moved to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, from the All Progressive Congress, APC, in the state.

The spokesperson for the Speaker of the Assembly, Abdul Burra, disclosed this while speaking on the outcome of the plenary late Wednesday.

The members that defected were Yusuf Bako, representing Pali Constituency and Umar Yakubu, representing Udubo Constituency.

According to Burra, the decision of the members to quit the APC was contained in a letter which was read by the Speaker, Abubakar Suleiman during plenary.

One of the defectors, Yakubu, in his letter, said he dumped the APC as from 2nd March, 2021.

He said, “According to him (the lawmaker), his decision to quit APC was based on the issues arising in the party at both state and national levels.

“He pledged his continued commitment toward salvaging the plight of the citizen and contribute to the developmental goals of the present administration in Bauchi State.”

Burra added that the Speaker also read the letter of Bako in which he notified the Assembly of his defection from the APC to the PDP.

“Bako said his defection came after series of consultations with his constituents in which they decided that he should join political forces with PDP to ensure the success of the present administration considering the developments being brought to the state.

“According to him, there is need for him to have a clear political direction in line with the demands of his people hence the reason of his movement to PDP,” he said.
