Senator Abdulaziz Nyako (APC-Adamawa Central) has disclosed that he and others are in talks with Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso about a new political party.
Speaking to his supporters in Adamawa, Nyako said he was preparing with the supporters of his father and former Adamawa State governor, Murtala Nyako, to leave the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) due to marginalization.
According to PremiumTimes, he said: “We have no option than to go; but we are still discussing the party to move to with our entire structure. I have spoken with Prof. Jerry Gana in SDP. I also spoke with Attahiru Bafarawa and fixed an appointment for him with Admiral Nyako. Bafarawa wants us to return to PDP.
“On Thursday, I went to Abeokuta and sat (down) with (former president) Obasanjo about ADC. He directed me to see Col. Oyinlola who assured us that we will be absorbed with our structures if we join the party. I also spoke with Kwankwaso (former Kano governor) before the congresses.”
Sen Nyako said that Kwankwaso spoke about “a new party coming up.”
“I was given the party’s constitution about a month ago, it’s a new party expected to be approved soon with four others by INEC,” Nyako said.
