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.
