A former lawmaker who represented Hong state constituency in Adamawa State House of assembly, Hon Hassan Mamman Barguma has dumped the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) in Adamawa State.
Barguma was elected into the state house of assembly in 2015 and served as the majority leader of the house.
In a letter of resignation he forwarded to Hong ward chairman of APC and sighted by our reporter, on Wednesday, Barguma said he took the difficult decision after realizing that the party cannot change for the better.
“I joined the APC as a pioneer member in 2014 with the hope and high expectations of political power creation and justice that will serve the needs of the people of Hong LGA, Adamawa State and Nigeria at large.
“I envisioned a political party where all people are treated equally with relevance and decorum according to democratic principles regardless of ethnic, religious or income.
“I envisaged hope and confidence that all people would be recognized, respected, and given a chance. Unfortunately, this was not the case and I can no longer stand by and watch helplessly.
“Therefore, for the reasons I stated above, I’m hereby resigning from the APC effective from 27th April 2022. I hope for those who remain, they can change the party for the better,” he said.
