Why I Quit PDP – Buba Marwa

Buba_marwa_mohammedA former military governor of Lagos State, Gen. Mohammed Buba Marwa (rtd), yesterday, withdrew his membership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Marwa had initially left the All Progressives Congress for the PDP last year and contested for the governorship ticket of the party in Adamawa State, which he lost.

According to a statement issued on Monday in Abuja by his media aide, Bello Zubairu, the former military governor said he decided to quit the PDP on personal grounds.

Marwa was the governorship candidate of the Congress for Progressives Change (CPC) in Adamawa State before the emergence of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The statement recalled that after the merger of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) and other legacy parties to form the APC, thousands of Marwa’s supporters from several local government areas of Adamawa State were denied the opportunity to register in the new party.

Though the statement did not state whether Marwa will be returning to the APC, it however stated: “The retired General will be making public his next line of action in the coming days” saying he has “appealed to his numerous supporters and well-wishers who have been calling him for direction from across the country to await his next move”.
