Rt. Hon. Abubakar Sulaiman, Speaker of Bauchi State House of Assembly, announced his defection from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Saturday night (PDP).
Abubakar, the chairman of the Conference of Speakers of State Houses of Assembly, stated this during the Ramadan Iftar (breakfast) hosted by the State governor, Senator Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed, for PDP stakeholders from Ningi, Toro, Warji, and Dass Local Government Areas of Bauchi at the Government House, Bauchi.
The Speaker stated that his decision to defect to the PDP was motivated by Governor Mohammed’s exceptional leadership style and dedication to improving the state.
Governor Mohammed’s development achievements, he claims, enticed him (Speaker) to defect.
Sulaiman then commended the governor for what he termed his (Governor Mohammed’s) ability to ensure harmonious working relationship between the executive arm of government and the State House of Assembly.
According to the Speaker, this was achieved by the governor despite the party differences, adding that the harmonious relationship between the two arms of government allowed for formulation and implementation of people-oriented policies and programmes in the State.
Reacting to the development, Governor Mohammed declared that it was a great honour done to him by the Speaker.
The governor said his administration chose to embark on developmental projects across the State with a view to providing the dividends of democracy to the people of the State instead of promoting corruption by sharing government resources among a few people.
He then solicited continuous support and collaboration with his administration, with a view to ensuring sustainable growth and development in Bauchi State.
Also speaking, the State PDP chairman, Hamza Koshe Akuyam, welcomed the speaker into the PDP, declaring that Sulaiman was one of the prominent politicians who joined the PDP.
According to him, with the PDP’s performance and ability, it would emerge victorious in the 2023 general elections in the State and the country in general.
