Fatuhu Muhammadu, a nephew to President Muhammadu Buhari, has dumped the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
The son of President Buhari’s elder sister represents Daura/Mai’Adua/Sandamu Federal Constituency of Katsina State in the House of Representatives.
He had failed to secure his reelection ticket. In the primary election, Fatuhu got only 30 votes while his rival, Aminu Jamo, polled 117 votes.
In a letter to the ward Chairman of Sarakin Yera A Ward in Daura, Fatuhu thanked the party for giving him its platform.
“This is to notify you that I have resigned my membership from the All Progressive Congress (APC) with immediate effect commencing from Wednesday 13th day of July, 2022.”
“Attached here with 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/Maiadua federal constituency while working with the party, accept my best wishes please.”
Although the letter was dated July 13, 2022, Fatuhu’s legislative aid, Ahmad Ganga, shared it on social media nearly a month after.
PlatinumPost reports that Fatuhu has reportedly met with the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2023 general elections, Atiku Abubakar, and he is expected to join the opposition party.
