Buhari’s Nephew Dumps APC After Losing Re-election Ticket

Fatuhu Muhammadu, a nephew to President Muhammadu Buhari, has dumped the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Muhammadu, the son of President Buhari’s elder sister, represents Daura/Mai’Adua/Sandamu Federal Constituency of Katsina State in the House of Representatives.

He had failed to secure his reelection ticket during the the APC primary election where he got only 30 votes while his rival, Aminu Jamo, polled 117 votes.

In a letter to the ward Chairman of Sarakin Yera A Ward in Daura, Fatuhu thanked the party for giving him its platform.

“This is to notify you that I have resigned my membership from the All Progressive Congress (APC) with immediate effect commencing from Wednesday 13th day of July, 2022.”

“Attached here with is my party membership registration slip with slip no: KT/DRA/10/00002. While I thank you and the party for the opportunity given to me to serve the interest of the people of Daura/Sandamu/Maiadua Federal Constituency while working with the party, accept my best wishes please.”

Although the letter was dated July 13, 2022, Fatuhu’s legislative aide, Ahmad Ganga, shared the letter on Social Media on Sunday.

In October 2018, three aspirants for the Daura/Sandamu/Maiadua Federal Constituency protested the alleged imposition of Mr Muhammad, saying the party and the state government were unjust to them.

In a joint statement, the three aspirants, Salisu Daura, Aminu Jamu and Kabir Abdullahi, criticized the state government and party for injustice, bias and subversion of electoral process.
