Why I left PDP for APC – Yobe Reps candidate

The House of Representative candidate under the platform of People Democratic Party (PDP) during the last 2023 general election in Yobe state, Hon. Kulloma Umara, said he decamped to the ruling All progressive Congress (APC) in order to give a total support to Governor Mai Mala Buni.

Umara disclosed this on Tuesday in an interview with Blueprint correspondent in Damaturu.

He revealed that he is in politics to support people and that he hasn’t seen any progress and development in PDP, reason he decided to join APC.

He also said he is now in APC to contribute his own quarter for the progress of Yobe state.

“Governor Mai Mala Buni recently called me and told me that he is going to work with me, therefore i should go and discuss the matter with my supporters.

“After I meet with my supporters, we intensively discussed about the development which I have 100 percent of their support and agreed to follow me into the ruling party, All progressive Congress (APC).

“I’m not doing this for myself rather for the progress of my entire people and the state as a whole.

“I took my supporters where I personally presented them before Governor Mai Mala Buni and he agreed to work with all of us and assured that we are going to be treated equal with those who were at the APC before us,” he said.

The decamped House of Representative candidate assured of his readiness to contribute his quarter towards working hard to see that APC wins all the chairmanship seats at the forthcoming local government elections in the state, scheduled for June 8, 2024.
