The deputy speaker, Bauchi State House of Assembly, Abdulmumini Bala Fanti and three other state lawmakers have dumped the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Peoples Redemption Party ( PRP).

The state lawmakers that defected to the PRP were Ibrahim Bello Katagum, and Auwal Hassan Shira. It was gathered that two senatorial aspirants who contested for Bauchi ‎South and Bauchi Central senatorial tickets on the APC platform, Barrister Lawan Ibrahim and Bappah Aliyu Misau have also dumped the party for the PRP.

Two ex-lawmakers, Abdulmumini Ningi and Dayyabu Chiroma, also defected.

Their defection followed the fallout ‎of the party’s primaries which saw over 20 members losing their tickets to re-contest.



Bauchi State PRP chairman, Alhaji Shehu Barau Ningi, confirmed that the APC defectors joined the party after they were denied tickets in their former party.
