Farouk Mustapha, a Bauchi state gubernatorial aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has dumped the party.
This is coming after he lost the party’s primary election to former Air Chief, Sadique Baba Abubakar on May 26, 2022.
In a post on his verified Facebook account, Mustapha wrote: “After a long analysis, and consulting with my family and political partners, I’ve decided to leave the APC.”
According to the letter Mustapha addressed to the APC Chairman, Nasarawa B Kasuwaa, in Azare, Katagum Local Government Area, he appreciated the leadership of the APC for providing him the opportunity to run for the gubernatorial ticket of the party in the state.
“It is on this premise that I forward to you my resignation as a member of the party effective from today, June 10, 2022,” he said.
He has not revealed his new party.
