- Isah Hamma Misau says his political future is not threatened despite leaving the APC
- Misau Declares that his popularity in his federal district in Bauchi remains intact
- He accuses the APC of shortchanging him and others even though he is a founding member of the party
Isah Hamma Misau, the senator representing Bauchi central at the National Assembly, has reportedly claimed that his leaving the All Progressives Congress (APC) will not stop his return to the Senate.
Misau joined the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) saying he was not troubled because his popularity is not affected.
Vanguard reports that the senator spoke to thousands of supporters at the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) secretariat in Misau local government area where he collected his membership card.
“Lack of internal democracy and justice for all members were some of the reasons that informed my decision to quit the ruling party.
“I was a founding member of the APC, but we and our supporters were shortchanged in the recent local governments and states congresses of the party.
“Our people were denied forms and election officials were hidden from us. So the injustice in APC is worst than what we accused PDP of in the past.
“In APC, if you are maltreated, you have nowhere to channel your grievances. Everybody knows that there is discipline in PDP.
“If you are treated unfairly you know where to report your grievances, and you will be heard.
“I hear fake stories of rejection by my people and how they are not with me. But you can see the crowd for yourself; I am overwhelmingly loved by my people.
