The Gombe State Chairman of the New Nigeria People's Party (NNPP), Maikano Abdullahi Umar has revealed his reasons for dumping the party for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Maikano dumped the party in the early hours of Friday after a meeting with Gombe State Governor, Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya.
In a letter made available to AllNews Nigeria, Maikano said his decision was informed by the lack of political focus, leadership direction and blueprint of the gubernatorial candidate of the party in the state, Khamisu Mailantarki.
He noted that he joined the APC because the state governor, Yahaya is a visionary and focused leader working for the development of the state.
The letter reads in full: "I wish to formally announce my resignation from the New Nigeria People's Party, NNPP and my position as the Gombe State Chairman of the party with effect from today, 3rd February, 2023.
"In light of the above, I hereby formally announce my decision to join the All Progressives Congress, APC.
"My decision to join the APC is due to lack of political focus, leadership direction and clear blueprint by the Governorship Candidate, Hon. Khamisu Mailantarki as to how he will move Gombe State forward and address its challenges if elected.
"I cannot be where rhetorics and lies take the centre stage at campaigns and political engagements rather than speaking on the roadmap and blueprints to addressing issues of governance and development.
"I have come to the realisation that Governor Govenor Inuwa Yahaya is a focused and visionary leader championing the cause of development in Gombe State, providing good governance and democracy dividends.
"As against the NNPP, APC is a party for reasonable and patriotic people focusing on development rather than hoodwinking the electorate with rhetorics and lies.
"I will provide further insights in due course."
