From Mohammed Ibrahim, Kaduna

All Progressives Congress Chieftain in Kaduna State, Haruna Yunusa Sa’eed yesterday withdraw his membership from ruling APC.
He said the leadership crisis in the state chapter of the party and lack of leadership was responsible for his decision to leave the party.
Haruna Sa’eed was the flag bearer of Congress for Progressive Change, CPC, in 2011 elections in Kaduna.
“I Haruna Yunusa Sa’eed today 15 March 2018 decided to withdraw my membership of All Progressives Congress, APC, due to leadership crisis in the state,” he said.
He disclosed this at a news briefing held at his office in Kaduna.
According to him, he has been a founding member of the APC, based on the merger that led to the formation of the party.
“I happened to be a key member of the CPC, not only being a member but a flag bearer of the party in 2011 in Kaduna State.
“I played a vital role in APC as a dominant player, but the activities of the party in the state left so much to be desired. All efforts we had to see that things have changed have gone in vein.
“There are, especially, those of us who are not being considered as members of the party. Whatever we said seem not to be listened to. Whatever we asked for is never considered.
“Indeed, the party has chosen to look at the members differently. Whatever is being done today is only to certain section of the party; and a party is not run like that.
Party is supposed to be where every member has an equal space to contribute.
“We are not being regarded as party members, again. The Party has no leadership in the state, which we have been talking over and over again.
“No chairman, no secretary, no vital leadership in the state. They refused to meet to see that certain things are done; and if anybody voices out anything then the party takes offence.
“You don’t defend anything that is obvious. If we asked for certain things to be done, in order for the party to move forward, we are doing so because we believe it’s for the betterment of the party and those of us members and in general the state,” he said.
“Since that is not the case, then I don’t think I should be part of it now; which is why I withdrew from the party today,” he said.
However, Haruna didn’t mentioned whether or not he will join another political party; but said his group will ponder over issues before taking next step, which will be based on consultation.
He also said nothing will make him have a rethink on the decision he took alongside his colleagues.
