Former Speaker of the Plateau state house of assembly Hon Abok Nuhu Ayuba has decamped from the All Progressives Congress APC to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
A statement signed by Itse Samuel Kaze, Media Assistant to Rt Hon Abok Nuhu Ayuba reads that Ayuba yesterday, March 18th, officially tended his letter of membership withdrawal to the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC), while presenting a letter of intent, seeking to return to his earlier party, the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP), at the party’s Local Government Secretariat in Angware, Jos East.
He added that His action became necessary in other to save the Local Government and the State from failed leadership that will lead to a state of total collapse if allowed.
Appreciating the party for considering and accepting his intention in a warm welcome, Abok said, “Mr. Chairman and your EXCO, elders and party faithfuls, ladies and gentlemen,
“I stand before you, deeply touched and inspired by your generous words of acceptance and encouragement. With boundless gratitude for the confidence you placed in me — I here, wish to extend my deepest respect and appreciation to all the leaders, faithfuls, and the people all together for your strong support.”
“Thank you Mr. Chairman, for graciously preparing and guiding the meeting today. I greatly look forward to supporting you and working with you, as you have wisely steered the party in Jos East towards a progressive state and on a part of a very successful mission.”
“Distinguish comrades, welldone! For you did astutely guide this great party into the 21st. century standard as expected.”
You have defined an ambitious agenda that has formed the PDP truly indispensable to winning elections, and to attaining the set level of peace, prosperity, and human dignity within our Local Government, State, and the nation, of which the common Plateau man daily yearns for. My debt to your courage and mission is immeasurable. I hereby resolve to work along in line with your pure refined vision.”
“In earnest, I hope that the youth of Jos East, Plateau, and Nigeria will come to the realization that the PDP is working hard to build a better future for us. As a loyal returnee — I pledge to wholly embrace the party’s ideals, hopes, and appeals. I am an optimist — and I am full of hope about the future of our great party. Let’s work together for a PDP that can deliver more, and better, and win all elections.”
Reacting on its own part, Hon Izang Ishaya Adamu, Chairman, PDP Jos East said, “Rt Hon Abok is the best person we have expected. His unwavering dedication to justice, principle, and leadership experience is crucial to the party’s organizational unity and progress towards winning elections not only in Jos East but in Plateau and Nigeria.
