It read in parts:

“They have no regard for the feelings, yearnings and sensibilities of even the members of the party who supported them and the general populace of Kaduna.
“On good governance, we are treated with disdain and seen as a pariah to those who personally benefit from the skewed realities present in the party. My many admonitions, advice, protests and best efforts at salvaging the party to bring it back into focus to achieve its set objectives have been ignored by you.”

One person cannot do so much in the party

He also noted that there is a limit to was a party member can do to keep the party afloat even as he believes he has done his best to serve but to no avail.

He added:

“I cannot remain in the APC when the party has no respect for the rule of law and simplest of the laws of the land. Therefore, I officially resign my membership of the APC at all levels from November 28, 2022.”

Adamawa speaker loses big as court takes strong decision against his senatorial ticket

Aminu Iya-Abbas had earlier been sacked as the Peoples Democratic Party's senatorial candidate for Adamawa Central.

The sack of Aminu Iya-Abbas was made known by a Federal High Courting 1 sitting in Yola, Adamawa state.

The speaker of the Adamawa House of Assembly had won the PDP primary election but his victory was annulled by the court following a suit against him.

2023 election: States where courts have sacked APC governorship candidates

Despite being the ruling party, the APC is not free from internal crises that could make the party lose two states in the forthcoming governorship election.

The ruling party is facing internal crises in Adamawa and Taraba states, where the governorship candidates were sacked by courts a few months before the election.

Presently, the APC does not have governorship candidates in the two northern states, just like it happened to the party in Zamfara in 2019.
