After dumping the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for Peoples Democratic Party, Honorable Fatuhu Muhammed, a nephew to President Muhammadu Buhari has revealed why he took the decision.
Recall that the lawmaker representing Daura/Mai’Adua/Sandamu Federal Constituency of Katsina State in the National Assembly, could not secure his re-election ticket after polling 30 votes, while Aminu Jamo, his rival secured 117 votes.
Reacting to his defection from the party he told Daily Trust that he dumped the ruling party because his rival allegedly ‘abused’ his father.
“I received an audio recording where their candidate (Jamo) called my father, Alhaji Mamman Dan Baffalo, by name and abused him. Alhaji Mamman Dan Baffallo and President Buhari are of the same father and mother.
“Out of the 26 children born by their father, they are the only males that are from the same father and mother. So, abusing my father is abusing the president.
“So, I said since the issue has gone beyond politics to denigrating the dignity of my parents, I cannot take it any longer, and it is not binding on me to stay in the party, so I decided to leave.”
