An aspirant in the 2023 governorship primary election in Bauchi State, Farouk Mustapha, has resigned from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
According to POLITICS NIGERIA, a former Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, won the APC Bauchi governorship election in May.
Mustapha revealed his decision to exit the APC in a recent letter sent to the chairman of the party in Nasarawa B/Kasuwa ward, Azare Katagum local government area (LGA) of the state. He, however, did not disclose his next step, although he said he has “decided to move to somewhere else”.
“After long analysis and consulting with my family and political partners, I have decided to leave APC,” Mustapha said in a social media post.
“I am very grateful to the leaders and members of APC for the opportunity they gave me, I joined the party, and even contested for governor in it. I will never forget this attendance.
“I joined APC to contribute towards development in Bauchi state! Except I don’t have the same decision with the leaders of the party. That’s why I decided to move to somewhere else to continue my struggle for betterment of our community.
“I need the grace of APC members to understand me, because I don’t care about anyone. And even though we may be in opposition parties during the election, that doesn’t make us enemies. Thank you so much.”
