Governorship aspirant of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP, in Bauchi State, Alhaji Mahmood Maijamaa has confirmed his exit from the party.
Chairman of Bogoro NNPP, Mr Ishaku Andrawus also dumped the party alongside 25,000 of his followers to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Maijamaa exclusively disclosed his resignation to DAILY POST, in an interview in Bauchi on Tuesday.
Although the former NNPP guber aspirant did not mention his next political party, he also declined to state why he dumped the party along with his supporters.
“For now, I have not decided which party to join apart from my exit from NNPP but I will make my political direction public as soon as possible,” Maijama said.
Meanwhile, Andrawus, the party’s chairman in Bogoro LGA of the state, dumped the NNPP for PDP along with 25,000 of his followers.
He cited absence of justice especially in abrogating his official obligation as his major reason for dumping the party.
According to Andrawus, his resignation was imperative to save his political career and to protect democracy.
“By this letter I have exited the party alongside 25,000 of my followers to PDP where I initially belonged in order to support Speaker Yakubu Dogara in the 2019 election,” Andrawus said.
He stressed that the NNPP has lost many of its members to the opposition party in recent times in the state due to injustice.
“I have also from today withdrawn my membership from NNPP with immediate effect,” the former chairman said.
