ROYAL NEWS reports that, Baiko, who was elected to the House of Representatives in 2003 under the defunct All Peoples Party said members of the All Nigerian Peoples Party had been sidelined since their party joined other legacy parties to form the APC.

He claimed that former vice president Atiku Abubakar had also complained of neglect in the APC, this comes months after the defection of a former governorship candidate, Ibrahim El-Amin, to the Peoples Democratic Party in Kano.

He also added that, he and his followers were only remembered during elections after which they have been cast aside by those in government. Read also: Unilorin VC under tension for alleged corruption

“As everyone knows, party politics is all about making members feel he belongs by including them in active governance, but in our case, no one remembers us after we helped in bringing the government and what do you think we will be doing in this kind of party?”

According to him, he and his over 20,000 supporters across Kano were defecting to help the PDP win all the forthcoming elections in the state, including the governorship.

He, however, claimed that former vice president Abubakar was also going back to the PDP. He said plans have been concluded for Atiku to defect.
