Fatuhu Muhammed, President Muhammadu Buhari’s cousin, and a member of the house of representatives, has quit his membership of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Muhammed, a son of Buhar’s late elder brother, represents Daura/Sandamu/Mai’adua Federal Constituency of Katsina State, in the lower legislative chamber.
In a letter dated July 13 and addressed to the ward chairman of Sarkin Yara A ward in Daura, Muhammed said his resignation from the party took immediate effect even as he did not give any reason for leaving the party.
Wrote he: “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”.
“Attached herewith is my Party Membership Registration slip with slip No.KT/DRA/10/00002, while I thank you and the Party for the opportunity given to me to serve the interest of the people of Daura/Sandamu/Mai’Adua Federal Constituency while working with the party, accept my best wishes please.”
The chairman of the APC in Katsina was also copied in the letter.
Muhammed had, in May, lost his bid to seek re-election into the house of representatives on the APC platform.
The development came months after Ahmed Babba Kaita, senator representing Katsina north, resigned his membership of the ruling party.
The senator, who represents the president’s senatorial district, defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Said Abdulkadir Lawal, Kaita’s aide in a statement in April: “Senator Ahmad Babba Kaita is not a bandwagon politician.
“His exemplary and robust representation in the Nigerian Senate is to the admiration of all, and with significant, visible impact in the areas of infrastructural and human capital development across the three Senatorial zones of the state. There is room to do more.
“The fresh page from the decision to join the PDP represents the ideals of representativeness in the mandate, goodwill and an even more determined desire and opportunity to provide succour, comfort and the much-needed dividends of democracy to the people”.
