 2023 Buhari s senator dumps APC for PDP
Senator Ahmad Babba Kaita

Senator Ahmad Babba Kaita (APC, Katsina North) has dumped the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

 

Kaita, who represents Katsina North, where President Muhammadu Buhari hails from, announced his defection from the ruling APC in a statement by his media aide, Abdulkadir Lawal.

 

Babba Kaita was elected to the 8th Senate in 2018 to fill the vacuum in the senatorial zone following the death of Senator Mustapha Bukar.

 

In 2019, he was re-elected to the 9th Senate after defeating his opponent, Hon Usman Mani of the PDP. He currently chairs the Senate Committee on Tertiary Institutions and TETFUND.

The lawmaker said he dumped APC due to the marginalisation of critical stakeholders by the state government and the leadership of the party at the state level.

 

According to him, the serial denial of the people’s mandate at the recent congresses among other related developments informed his decision to vacate the ruling party after wide consultations with his people.

 

Babba Kaita said his movement to PDP was informed by his determined desire and opportunity to provide succour and much-needed dividends of democracy to his people.

Two Signs APC Still Not Ready to Govern After Buhari By Farooq Kperogi It’s OK to despise PDP and Atiku Abubakar. I do, too. But the truth is that, of Nigeria’s major political parties, only PDP has shown a readiness to govern at the national level from day one. We may not like how they’ll govern, but they’re at least coherent, earnest, transparent, and predictable. The party held its convention on schedule and submitted the name of its vice presidential candidate to INEC on deadline–with little or no internal rancor. APC, on the other hand, needed to extend the date of its convention by one week. Even so, it almost asked for another extension, and its poorly conducted convention spilled over to the following day. It also couldn’t turn in the name of its vice presidential candidate to INEC on deadline and instead submitted a “placeholder,” a vexing political anomaly Nigeria hadn’t witnessed before, which smaller parties have sadly quickly copied. That bespeaks a disorganized, ramshackle, “fire-brigade,” spur-of-the-moment, not-ready-for-prime-time political party. No party can effectively govern a sick, complex country like Nigeria with such indiscipline, insouciance, and planlessness. Should the party be voted into power in 2023, given its aggravating indiscipline and incompetence in organizing a mere convention and appointment a running mate to its presidential candidate, you can bet that it will repeat Buhari’s template of delaying the appointment of ministers and constituting boards of government agencies by several months. Or worse. We all know how that turned out for Buhari–and Nigeria. Governance never took off, directionlessness took over, a recession hit, and the economy tanked. The country hasn’t recovered up to now. It seems indecision, indiscipline, impunity, and ineptitude are inescapably inserted into APC’s DNA. For example, after its delegates convention, the party is now busy removing the names of people who won primary elections and replacing them with the names of party hon honchos who didn’t participate in the primaries. It is said that indecision is the graveyard of good intentions. APC doesn’t even have good intentions to start with. So, it’s burdened with a double whammy of indecision and no intentions.L
