Politicans in Kaduna were shocked today when a major loyalist to President Muhammadu Buhari and a Chieftain of All Progressives Congress (APC), Haruna Sa’eed, dumped the party.
Sa’eed, who is a former gubernatorial aspirant under the platform of Congress for Progressive Change in Kaduna State in 2011, spoke in his office in Kaduna.
He said: “I Haruna Yunusa Sa’eed have decided today 15 March 2018 to withdraw my Membership from APC. I have been a founding member of the party based on the merger that came to be which led to the ruling party.”
“I happen to be a key member of the CPC, not only been a member but a flag bearer of the party in 2011 in Kaduna State.”
“In fact, we won the election at that time but we were short-changed in the usual manner by the then ruling party the PDP.”
“I played a vital role in APC as a dominant player but the activities of the arty in the state left so much to be desired. Because of that all efforts that we have made to see that things changed for the better has been in vain.”
“Expecially those of us that are not being considered as members of the party. Whatever we said seem not to be listened to. Whatever we asked for is never considered.”
“Indeed the party has chosen to look at the members differently.”
“Whatever is being done today is only to certain section of the party and a party is not run like that. Party is supposed to be that every member has an equal space to contribute.”
“Since that is not the case then I don’t think I should be part of it now. which is why I withdrew from the party today.”
