A chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and 2015 Director General of the Buhari campaign organization in Kagarko Local Government Area of Kaduna State, Honourable Shunom Adinga has formally dumped the APC and seeking House of Assembly ticket under the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP).
Adinga who cited lack of internal democracy and the lack of the dividend of democracy to his local government council by the government of the ruling APC in the state, also averred that the APC has practically lost the good will it enjoyed prior to the 2015 general elections, stressing that remaining there will amount to a major political risk.
This is just as he alleged that the ” current mandate of the local government Chairman of Kagarko, on the platform of the APC is a stolen one.”
Towards this end, he called on the elected local government Chairman to better the lives of the people in the area “he should use the stolen opportunity to do justice to all and sundry regardless of party affiliation.”
Speaking during a formal declaration to seek to represent Kagarko local government in the Kaduna state House Assembly in the 2019 general elections under the flag of the PRP, said, he choice to represent his people is borned out of the passion to give his constituency qualitative representation.
“Regardless of the party affiliation, i am offering myself for effective and qualitative representation for the good people of Kagarko local government,” he further said.
Also speaking at the occasion, the Chairman of PRP in Kagarko local government, Honourable Abubakar Tanimu John, welcomed Adinga from the ruling APC to the PRP where he said, justice, equity, fairness and justice is the order of the day.
He called on the people of the local government to come out in their numbers to support Adinga in his quest to actualise his development based ideology on the platform of the PRP.
Also speaking, the Secretary of the party in Kagarko local government, Honourable Abdullahi Idris, said that the coming of Adinga to the party will rekindle the hopes of many people not just in Kagarko but southern Kaduna and Nigeria as a whole as he will attract more developments which the party has as its watch word.
He added that only the development that was initiated and actualized by the Balarabe Musa administration is the one thing that the southern part of the area has to show.
He said Adinga will be another Balarabe Musa to the local government, southern Kaduna state and the nation in general. He stressed that as it stands today “Honourable Shunom Adinga will be a man to beat in the State House of Assembly election for Kagarko constituency because he has paid his dues for the local government and it is time for him to be rewarded accordingly” he said.
Highlight of the occasion was the presentation of the party’s membership card to Honourable Adinga amidst funfar from people who attended the official declaration.
