The Kaduna State House of Assembly Deputy Speaker, John Audu Kwaturu, on Friday dumped the ruling party, All Progressives Congress, APC, over “Impunity”.
According to the lawmaker representing Kachia Constituency in the State Assembly, APC had failed and failed his people, Southern Kaduna.
The Deputy Speaker, who confirmed the development to journalists on Friday, said he cannot continue to remain in a party that had failed to recognise due process.
He explained, “The ideology of fairness, equity and justice no longer exist in APC and that is why I had quit.
“But before I quit, l did communicate and discussed with the Deputy Governor, Architect Bala Bantex and other party stakeholders in my local government area, Kachia local government area.
”I also see no reason why I should remain in a party where my interest is not protected.
“So I decided to dump the party alongside thousands of my supporters, including my Ward Chairman .”
In his letter of withdrawal from the APC, Yakubu said his decision to leave was informed by the fact that the leadership of the party at the state and local government levels had become draconian.
