Senator Abdul-Azeez Nyako representing Adamawa Central district in the red chamber and Rufai Umar representing Gombi constituency in Adamawa House of Assembly have officially defected from All Progressives Congress (APC) to African Democratic Congress (ADC).
The two legislators announced their formal defection Monday, July 16 at a stakeholders meeting and inauguration of ADC congress committee for Adamawa in Yola.
The lawmakers said they were compelled to leave APC with their supporters due to injustice done to them during the recent congresses of APC in Adamawa.
“We are hopeful and pray to God that this step taken will be better for us.
“Justice is the foundation for everything good and we want to enjoin ADC to ensure justice to all so that more people will come and join,” Abdul-Azzez said.
Speaking at the event, the acting chairman of ADC in Adamawa, Alhaji Mijinyawa Kugama, said the party was committed to justice for all.
“We are going to ensure that everyone is carried along in the party during our congress starting from July 24,” Kugama said.
Kugama reportedly explained that the initial 700 membership cards given to each of the 21 local government areas of the state had been exhausted, adding that another batch of cards would be released.
Speaking also, the national secretary of ADC, Alhaji Saidu Baba-Abdullahi, expressed happiness over the development and assured all members of equal rights and justice.
