Senator Abdullahi Yahaya.

The majority leader of the Nigerian Senate, Senator Abdullahi Yahaya, has formally resigned his position as the Majority Leader of the senate, following his defection to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Yahaya, who represents Kebbi-North in the upper chamber of the National Assembly, said this in a letter he addressed to the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan and was read at plenary on Tuesday.

The letter read, “I write to inform you of the withdrawal of my membership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and consequently resigned my position as the majority leader of the 9th senate, and I came to this decision, after a very hard struggle with my conscience and emotions that it is better to remain on the side of my people than selfishly look at the other way, as all politics is local, I cannot therefore in good conscience continue to work for the success of this administration at the center, while the people of my state, my primary constituency continue to wallow in abject poverty and destitution under the misrule and manipulation of a despot in the state”.

“I have therefore decided to pitch my tent with the PDP in other to join forces with compatriots at home who are against incompetence, imposition and violation against democratic norms, principles and practices” he said.
