One of the All Progressives Congress (APC) chairmanship aspirants during the last election in Kuje Area Council, Hon. Hassan Bako has dumped the party for Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Bako with some members of the APC left the party over the weekend and were received by the Kuje PDP ward central chairman, Alhaji Danlami Tanko at the party’s secretariat.
Fielding questions from some journalists on what informed his decision, Bako said the party lacked internal democracy and that there was no need for him to remain in the APC.
He said the activities of APC were not in line with the tenets of democracy, which according to him was a frustration to him and other members.
“Since the party came into existence there has never been a stakeholders meeting, even if there is a meeting some of us are being excluded, there’s no need to remain in APC, it is better for me to go back to my former party, PDP.”
Receiving the new members, Kuje Central ward chairman, Alhaji Danlami Tanko pledged PDP’s readiness to give them all the necessary support in the party.
Tanko said the party would give equal treatment to all its members, even as he said the previous mistakes have been well addressed and the party is set for victory at the forthcoming elections.
