BREAKING: Senate President, Bukola Saraki’s Chief Of Staff Dumps APC

Hakeem Baba-Ahmad, Chief of staff to Senate President, Bukola Saraki has decamped from the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.

Addressing reporters in Kaduna on Monday, Baba-Ahmad said he had already sent his resignation letter to the party chairman of his ward.

Baba-Ahmad alleged that the APC government had under-performed in the country.

“This statement is to inform the public of my resignation from APC. I have sent a formal letter to this effect tochairmanof my ward.

This has been a very difficult decision, to leave a party I helped to form and made my humble contributions to put in power. After three years, however, I need to say that the APC has grosslyunder-performedand has forfeited any claim to my loyalty and continued membership.

I do not believe in all conscience, that it should be trusted and encouraged to continue to govern our great country beyond 2019. I am not leaving to join another party. This is my decision and mine alone. It has nothing to do with the President of the Senate, Dr.Abubakar Bukola Saraki.

It’s a decision taken after due consultations with Akida Group, a group that has predated my appointment as Chief of Staff to the President of the Senate. I will remain active in politics, as this is the main avenue for salvaging our nation from rising insecurity, poverty and divisions.”

Baba-Ahmed was one time chairman of Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) and interim chairman of APC in Kaduna state and formerly a secretary of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
