Na’abba considers next move, in talks with APC
SEVENTY-TWO hours after his defection from the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP), former Speaker of House of Representatives, Ghali Umar Na’Abba has disclosed that he is still considering his next move, even as there are speculations that he is in serious talk with the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC).
A source close to APC hinted that the party needs people like the former Speaker for their doggedness, principled posture and struggle against tyranny and injustice of whatever form. Maintaining that with politicians like Na’Abba in the fold of the opposition party, it was expected that more like-minded personalities would also join the party.
“Honourable Ghali Na’Abba, our former Speaker is known in every nook and cranny of the country for his critical mind and expression about anything unjust. We all know him as a focused and principled politicians,” stated the source.
The source further maintained that, “The days of PDP are numbered. Look PDP is not in anyway a strong party again, but rather a sinking ship.”
However, a group, Kano State PDP Frontiers has described Na’Abba’s defection as an exercise in futility. They said his exit “…was of no value aside the facts that he was once one of the top five public officer in the country.”
Coordinator of the group, Ahmed Sani Kabara, reiterated that PDP and its large followership would not miss the former Speaker as “…his presence has been of no impact, so would his absence be.”
“The former Speaker is known both in the local chapter of the party and the national level to exhibit traits that are self-centred and invariably unhealthy for a democratic setting,” said the statement.
