The former deputy governor of Katsina state, Abdullahi Garba Faskari, has dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) after accusing the party’s governorship candidate of being unworthy of being elected.
Faskari said the governorship candidate lives in Kano and comes to Katsina everyday for the meeting and so cannot be dedicated to a state he doesn’t live in, Daily Trust reports.
He said: “This cannot be a desired persons that we need to lead us here in Katsina.
“Allowing Lado to become governor is amounting to Katsina state having two governors being one in Kano and another in Katsina.
“I have resigned my membership of the PDP and don’t have a party yet.”
Fasari said the flag bearer of the PDP, Senator Yakubu Lado, cannot be the best compared to the APC’s Aminu Masari.
Although he is yet to announce which party he is decamping to, all clues point to the APC.

The leader of the coalition and an elder statesman, Muhammadu Kirfi, disclosed this on Tuesday, March 5, at a meeting held at Riveredge Hotel, Bauchi, saying the move was part of their renewed efforts to unseat Governor Abubakar.
The parties decided to adopt the PDP candidate because he has the courage and wherewithal to defeat Governor Abubakar.
Kirfi noted that the people of Bauchi state had a lot of confidence and respect for President Muhammadu Buhari, which was why they voted for him, but they were not happy with happenings in the state under Governor Abubakar.
