Three months after threatening to destroy the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) after his defeat during the party’s House of Representative’s primary for the Daura Sandamu/Maiadua Constituency, President Muhammadu Buhari’s nephew, Fatuhu Muhammad, has exited the party.
Mr Muhammad, whose father was Mr Buhari’s oldest brother, announced his exit from the APC in a letter addressed to the Sarkin Yara Ward APC chairman in Daura Local Government Area dated, 13 July 2022.
“This is to notify you that I have resigned my membership from the All Progressives Congress (APC) with immediate effect commencing from Wednesday the 13th day of July 2022. Attached herewith 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-Mai’Adua Federal Constituency while working with the party, accept my best wishes please,” he said.
Though he did not mention if he was defecting to another party, his media aide, Ahmad Ganga disclosed that his principal met with the PDP’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, recently.
Mr Muhammad had in June threatened to destroy the APC, alleging that he was cheated out of the primary election that produced Aminu Jamo as the party’s flagbearer.
He said he was not going to participate in a fresh election if the party decides to do one as he was the rightful winner of the primary election.
