By ACHADU UDEH, Kaduna
The Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Interior, Mr. Jagaba Adams Jagaba on Monday declared the end of his “honey moon” with the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Mr. Jagaba, a member of the ruling APC presenting Kachia/Kagarko in the House of Representatives who was reacting to his suspension from the party in Kaduna State, said “APC is a sinking ship and I won’t perish with it.”
He expressed dismay that the party leadership handed him a suspension instead of outright dismissal.
“I expected dismissal and now suspension. It’s been long I bid them farewell. My body language, my utterances, my actions and inactions has demonstrated that I had parted ways with them for a long time. It’s unfortunate that they are not practical scientists to realized it,” he said.
He added that “the APC has clearly shown that the security and welfare of the people is not its business.”
He said: “The electorates are more poorer now, Fulani herdsmen have continued to attack and killed my people unabatedly with both the Federal and State governments doing nothing.
“The Governor of Kaduna State has continually said, he does not need the votes from Southern Kaduna to win election, he has demonstrated that he value the live of a cow than the lives of Southern Kaduna people. So, I can’t stay with them in the same party,” he added.
He also stressed that the power of is with the electorates and not in the hands of a political party, adding “if they are expecting me to come crawling in my knees to beg them, then they are day dreaming.”
