Zamfara lawmaker writes Senate, announces resignation from PDP

The Senator representing Zamfara Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Senator Hassan Muhammed Nasiha, has announced his resignation from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The lawmaker announced his resignation in a letter read on the floor of the Red Chamber by Senate President Ahmad Lawan at the resumption of plenary on Tuesday.

He said his decision to leave the PDP was necessitated by the collapse of internal democracy and factionalisation of PDP in Zamfara State.

Senator Muhammed, in the letter, did not disclose the party he is joining.

He is among the lawmakers from Zamfara State expected to follow the state governor, Bello Muhammad Matawalle to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
