Senator representing Adamawa Central, Abdul-Azeez Nyako has disclosed that supporters of his father, former Governor Murtala Nyako are preparing to dump the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Addressing supporters in Yola, the state capital, Nyako said they were preparing to quit APC due to marginalization.
He said they were ”completely marginalised” in the just concluded ward, local government and state congresses held in the state.
Nyako said, “Even his father, Murtala Nyako lost control of his ward in Mayo-Belwa local government.”
The lawmaker noted that the reconciliatory talks between the APC leadership and aggrieved members of the “New PDP’ a faction within the APC, was just a ruse.”
He said, “We have no option than to go, but we are still discussing the party to move to with our entire structure. I have spoken with Prof. Jerry Gana in SDP. I also spoke with Attahiru Bafarawa and fixed an appointment for him with Admiral Nyako. Bafarawa wants us to return to PDP.
“On Thursday, I went to Abeokuta and sat (down) with (former president) Obasanjo about ADC. He directed me to see Col. Oyinlola who assured us that we will be absorbed with our structures if we join the party. I also spoke with Kwankwaso (former Kano governor) before the congresses.
“I was given the party’s constitution about a month ago, it’s a new party expected to be approved soon with four others by INEC.”
Nyako said they were happy leaving APC ”before it’s too late.”
“We have done this before, when we left PDP to form APC and this time around by the grace of God, our movement will not be in vain,” Nyako said.
