A member of the House of Representatives, Hon Adams Jagaba, has dumped the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
The lawmaker, who is the chairman of the House committee on interior, announced his decision while reacting to his suspension from the APC in Kaduna State.
Jagaba, who represents Kachia/Kagarko constituency of Kaduna State, said: “APC is a sinking ship and I won’t perish with it.
“I expected dismissal and now suspension. It’s been long I bid them farewell.
“My body language, my utterances, my actions and inactions has demonstrated that I had parted ways with them for a long time. It’s unfortunate that they are not practical scientists to realise it.”
He, however, did not disclose the party he would join.
Jagaba alleged that the APC had shown deafening ears to the security and welfare of the Nigerians.
“The electorates are more poorer now; Fulani herdsmen have continued to attack and kill my people unabatedly with both the federal and state governments doing nothing.
“The Governor of Kaduna State has continually said, he does not need the votes from Southern Kaduna to win election. He has demonstrated that he values the life of a cow than the lives of Southern Kaduna people. So, I can’t stay with them in the same party.
“The power lies with the electorates and not in the hands of a political party; if they are expecting me to come crawling on my knees to beg them, then they are day dreaming,” he added.
