The Deputy Speaker, Kano State House of Assembly, Zubairu Hamza Massu has resigned his membership of the All Progressive Congress (APC).
His is the fourth APC member of the Kano House of Assembly to leave the party in three days.
Recall that APC has been facing crisis in the state since the state Governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje anointed Nasiru Gawuna to succeed him.
It was gathered that APC members of the party from Kano South are said to be unhappy with the endorsement of Gawuna and Murtala Garo, from Kano Central and Kano North respectively.
In a letter addressed to the ward chairman of the APC, Massu town, the deputy speaker, who is representing Sumaila Local Government Area, from Kano South, in the assembly, announced his resignation from the APC.
He explained that the decision came after a series of consultations with his constituents and supporters about recent happenings in the party.
Although Massu did not reveal his next move, he stated, “Following the recent happening in the party coupled with series of consultations with my constituents, supporters and stakeholders in Sumaila and Kano North in general, I write to notify you of my intention and decision to resign as a member of APC.”
According to the letter, the decision is mainly due to unjust treatment, inadequate internal democracy and total marginalization of Kano South from a lot of opportunities.
