APC Can’t Be Trusted, Encouraged To Continue Ruling Nigeria – Saraki’s Chief Of Staff

    Dr. Hakeem Baba Ahmed

    By KATO P. LADAN,  Kaduna

    The ruling All Progressives Congress  (APC) should not be trusted  or encouraged to  continue  governing  Nigeria,    the Chief of Staff  to Senate  President,  Dr. Hakeem Baba  Ahmed  has said.

    He expressed this in a  statement he personally  signed,  while  announcing  his resignation resignation from APC,  dated  July  2, 2018.

    “I do not  believe, in all conscience,  that it should  be trusted and encouraged to continue  to govern our great  country  beyond  2019,” he said.

    Baba Ahmed  explained that he was not quitting  the party  for another,  adding  that the Senate  President,  Dr..  Bukola Saraki  has nothing  to  do with  his personal  decision to quit the party.

    “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  Sarki.  It is a decision taken  after due  consultation with the Akida Group,  a group that  has predated  my appointment as Chief of Staff  to the President  of the  Senate, ” he said.

    He however  assured that in his quest  to  salvage  Nigeria,  he would  remain  active  in politics.

    “I will  remain  active  in politics,  as this  is the  main  avenue for salvaging  our nation  from rising  insecurity,  poverty,  and bitter  divisions.,” he said.

    Further,  he pointed out that  already,  his letter  of resignation  has been  delivered  to his ward  chairman.

    “This  statement is to inform the public  of my resignation  from the All Progressives Congress  (APC). I have sent  a formal  letter  to this effect to  the Chairman  of my ward, ” he said.

    Baba Ahmed cited gross underperformance as his  main reason of dumping the party.

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