The Chairman, House of Representatives committee on interior, Adams Jagaba, on Monday evening formerly dumped Nigeria’s ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
Mr. Jagaba, who represents Kachia/Kagarko constituency of Kaduna State, announced his decision while reacting to his suspension from the APC in Kaduna State.
“APC is a sinking ship and I won’t perish with it,” he said.
Mr. Jagaba, who said he had expected to be expelled from the party, did not announce the party he would join.
Sources close to him, however, told PREMIUM TIMES he will soon declare for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
“I expected dismissal and now suspension. It’s been long I bid them farewell,” the lawmaker said.
“My body language, my utterances, my actions and inactions have demonstrated that I had parted ways with them for a long time. It’s unfortunate that they are not practical scientists to realise it,” he said.
He alleged that the APC has shown that the security and welfare of the people is not a priority.
“The electorates are poorer now, Fulani herdsmen have continued to attack and kill my people unabatedly with both the federal and state governments doing nothing.
