Kano Deputy Speaker, Zubairu Massu, dumps APC

The Deputy Speaker of the Kano State House of Assembly, Zubairu Hamza Massu, has dumped the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC).

The deputy speaker, who is representing Sumaila Local Government from Kano South in the assembly, announced his resignation from the APC in a letter addressed to the ward chairman of the APC, Massu town, on Friday.

With his resignation, the APC has lost four House of Assembly members within three days.

Although he did not reveal his next move, Massu said the decision came after a series of consultations with his constituents and supporters about the recent happenings in their party.

His letter read, “Following the recent happening in the party couple with series of consultations with my constituents, supporters and stakeholders in Sumaila and Kano North in general, I write to notify you of my intention and decision to resign as a member of APC.

“The decision is mainly due to unjust treatment, inadequate internal democracy and total marginalization of Kano south from a lot of opportunities.”
