Farouk Mustapha, a governorship aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Bauchi State has resigned from the party.
He left the party after suffering defeat in the primary election, losing the ticket to former Air Chief, Sadique Baba Abubakar on May 26, 2022.
In a post on his verified Facebook account, Mustapha announced his resignation from the party at the weekend, but has not revealed his new party.
His resignation letter reads, “After a long analysis, and consulting with my family and political partners, I’ve decided to leave the APC.”
In the letter he addressed to the APC Chairman, Nasarawa B Kasuwaa, in Azare, Katagum Local Government Area, Mustapha expressed appreciation to the leadership of the APC for providing him the opportunity to run for the governorship ticket of the party in Bauchi.
“It is on this premise that I forward to you my resignation as a member of the party effective from today, June 10, 2022,” he said.
