An All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship aspirant in Bauchi State, Farouk Mustapha, has dumped the party after losing the ticket to former Air Chief, Sadique Baba Abubakar, at the primaries held on May 26, 2022.

 

Mustapha, who announced his resignation from the party on his verified Facebook account on Saturday, June 11, 2022, is, however, yet to say which party he is defecting to.

A source close to Farouq told The Nation that the Katagum-based politician would be heading to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the coming days, as Bauchi governor, Senator Bala Mohammed is alleged to mull dropping his deputy, Senator Bala Tela.

The source added that Farouk had a series of meetings with the governor, who has given him assurances that he would be his running mate in his re-election bid.

Our correspondent also gathered that Farouk’s resignation was not unconnected with the internal crisis rocking the party.

His resignation letter as seen on Facebook reads: “After a long analysis, and consulting with my family and political partners, I’ve decided to leave the APC.

“It gives me a great honour and privilege to write and express my profound appreciation to the leadership of the APC at all levels for allowing me to join the party and also offer myself to participate in the just-concluded governorship primaries election on May 26 2022.

 

“It is on this premise that I forward to you my resignation as a member of the party effective from today, June 10, 2022,” Mustapha wrote in a letter addressed to the APC Chairman Nasarawa B Kasuwaa, in Azare, Katagum Local Government Area.

Also, two young men trekked 205kms to drum support for the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Bauchi State, retired Air Marshal Saddique Abubakar.

The two young men, Abu Samaila, 35 and Abubakar Yusuf, 25 walked from Azare in Katagum Local Government Area of the state to Bauchi, the state capital within three days.

The duo told reporters yesterday in Bauchi that they trekked to celebrate the victory of Abubakar at the recent APC primary election.

Abubakar, a former Chief of Air Staff (CAS), defeated seven others to pick the governorship ticket of the party.

According to the youth, the trekking was part of their love for the candidacy of Abubakar and in appreciation of his past contributions to national development.

 

They further explained that it was their idea to embark on the trekking without consulting anybody or announcing their intention.

The two young men said Abubakar has done much for the state and the country, adding that he brought several developments to the state to deserve such celebrations.

“Along the way, we sensitised hundreds of youths to join us in the campaign to make Bauchi great under Abubakar as governor.

“We believe that only he can solve the problems of unemployment, poverty, insecurity and other challenges bedevilling the state,” Samaila said.

 

According to Yahaya, they left Azare at about 6:30 a.m. on Monday and arrived in Bauchi on Thursday.

Mr Yahaya Miya, the Director-General of Air Marshal Abubakar Campaign Organisation commended the two young men at a reception organised on their behalf on Saturday in Bauchi to appreciate their support for Abubakar.

He appreciated the two gentlemen for demonstrating their support, love and zeal for the APC governorship candidate.
