Buhari's Nephew Fatuhu Muhammad Dumps APC
A member of the house of representatives named Fatuhu Muhammad has left the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Muhammad, a son of President Muhammadu Buhari's late older brother, represents Katsina state's Daura/Sandamu/Mai'adua federal seat in the lower house of parliament.
Muhammed immediately announced his resignation from the party in a letter dated July 13 addressed to the Sarkin Yara A ward in Daura.
The lawmaker did not give any reason for leaving the party.
“This is to notify you that I have resigned my membership from the All Progressives Congress (APC) with immediate effect commencing from Wednesday the 13th day of July 2022,” he wrote.
Muhammad's attempt to run for re-election to the house of representatives on the APC platform had failed in May.
A few months after Ahmed Babba Kaita, a senator from Katsina North, resigned from the ruling party, a new situation occurred.
The senator who switched parties to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) represents the president's senatorial district.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
