Why I Defect To APC – NNPP Chairman, Maikano Umar2 min read
Maikano Umar, the chairman of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) in Gombe State, has resigned as chairman of the party as well as his membership in the party.
Umar, who resigned in a letter he personally signed on Friday, also announced his intention to join the All Progressives Congress.
Umar cited a lack of political focus, leadership direction, and a clear blueprint by the party’s Governorship candidate in Gombe State, Hon. Khamisu Mailantarki, who he claims hasn’t explained how he will move the state forward and address its challenges if elected.
“I wish to formally announce my resignation from the New Nigeria People’s Party, NNPP, and my position as the Gombe State Chairman of the party with effect from today, 3rd January 2023.
“In light of the above, I hereby formally announce my decision to join the All Progressives Congress, APC.
“My decision to join the APC is due to lack of political focus, leadership direction, and clear blueprint by the Governorship Candidate, Hon. Khamisu Mailantarki as to how he will move Gombe State forward and address its challenges if elected.
“I cannot be where rhetorics and lies take the centre stage at campaigns and political engagements rather than speaking on the roadmap and blueprints to addressing issues of governance and development.
“I have come to the realization that Governor Inuwa Yahaya is a focused and visionary leader championing the cause of development in Gombe State, providing good governance and democracy dividends.
“As against the NNPP, APC is a party for reasonable and patriotic people focusing on development rather than hoodwinking the electorate with rhetorics and lies.
“I will provide further insights in due course.
