Another APC senator dumps party

Senator Mustapha Sani Mohammed

A senator representing Niger South, Mustapha Sani-Mohammed, has dumped the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, following the fallout of the primaries.

DAILY NIGERIAN reliably gathered that the senator made the decision on Monday.

It was also gathered that Mr Mohammed resigned following the party’s decision to reject the ‘automatic ticket’ it earlier promised him.

Recall that the ruling party had dropped his name from the list of candidates for the 2019 general election.

However, speaking with DAILY NIGERIAN on the telephone, the senator said that he left the party based on an injustice meted against his person.

He said: “Senators Sahabi Abdullahi and David Umaru were cleared but I was not cleared. Instead, Bima Muhammad was brought in as my replacement.

“This is an injustice. I don’t have time to go to court and in the next two days I will announce the party I will join.”
