Marwa, supporters make a U-turn to APC


- Advertisment -
Ex-Nigerian envoy to South Africa and former military governor of Lagos State, Gen. Mohammed Buba Marwa, has resigned his membership from the People’s Democratic Party, (PDP).
He has thus 2015 returned to the All Progressives Congress (APC), with thousands of his supporters across Adamawa state.
His resignation was contained in a statement issued Wednesday in Yola, Adamawa State by his media aide, Bello Zubairu.
Marwa said the decision to return to the APC was jointly reached at a well-attended meeting on Wednesday June 10, 2015, between himself and his supporters under the aegis of The Marwa Organization (TMO).
Speaking at the meeting, Marwa, who also was a former military governor of Borno State aside Lagos, reminded group that initially had no reason to leave APC, but for the fact that thousands of TMO members were denied registration into the party in Adamawa State when it was newly formed.
Marwa was also the governorship candidate of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) in Adamawa state. After the merger of CPC and other opposition parties to form the APC, thousands of his supporters from several local government areas of the state were technically denied the opportunity to register in the new party then.
He noted that all his efforts to seek redress through the appropriate channels were to no avail, “Thus, leaving thousands of you, TMO members, without a party.” He urged them to forgo their grievances and let bygones-be-bygones, stressing that with President Muhammadu Buhari in the saddle, such impunity won’t happen again.
“TMO thus resolved to return to the party they had joined others to form, work for its growth and contribute to national development, after listening to the views of others,” the statement said.
Marwa then urged all elected and appointed officials across the country to work for positive change in Nigeria.
