imam - BREAKING: Former Speaker decamps from APC (DETAILS)

A former speaker of the Kogi state house of assembly has dumped the All Progressives Congress, APC for the Social democratic party(SDP) in Kogi state.

PoliticsNGR gathered that the speaker, Umar Ahmed Imam announced his defection on Sunday in Lokoja, said he had to take the decision because he had for long been shut out of the APC’s affairs in the state and no longer recognized as a member of the party right from his ward down to the state level.

He said he had waited for several months, hoping that the APC leadership would encourage participation of every party member in its affairs but rather the division and crisis continued.

“It is no longer news that the APC has equally imposed a candidate for the forthcoming House of representative Bye-election to fill in the vacancy occasioned by the death of the member representing Lokoja/Kogi Federal constituency without complying with the rules of internal democracy.

“Therefore, the decision to defect from the APC is based on the foregoing and the continued fractionalization of the party at both the national and state levels given the leadership crisis within the party”, he said.
