Former spokesman to ex Governor Mukhtar Ramalan Yero, Ahmed Maiyaki has officially resigned his membership of main opposition, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
“Having consulted widely with my political associates, family and friends, l have decided to resign my membership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
“This decision has become necessary in view of the inability of the party at the state and its gubernatorial candidate, Isa Ashiru Kudan to provide an alternative development plan if elected to lead the state.
A statement signed by Ahmed Maiyaki on Saturday read, “It is on record that the bar of governance in Kaduna State is admirably high at the moment and we as indigenes of the state have a duty to sustain this feat.
“Sadly, the PDP in Kaduna and it’s gubernatorial candidate, Isa Ashiru Kudan have not put in place any plan to sustain or surpass these achievements.
“To this end, l have notified and returned the membership card to officials of the PDP at my ward.
“Accordingly, l have registered as a member of All Progressive Congress (APC) whose candidate, Gov Nasir Ahmad Elrufai has proven competence and vision for Kaduna State.
“I wish to state unequivocally, that @elrufai’s vision for my dear state is unmatched by any of the candidates seeking to be governor of the state in the March 9th polls.
“I believe el-Rufai has the capacity, experience and interest to serve Kaduna better.
“l therefore declare my total support for his candidature and urge other likeminds to do so. Kaduna truly deserves a competent leader, we cannot afford anything less.”
