By HASSAN JIRGI, Maiduguri

A former member of the House of Representatives and leader of Tinubu Support Group in Borno South District of Borno State, Hon Abdu Musa Msheliza, has dumped the All Progressives Congress (APC) and joined the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)

Msheliza who was an aspirant for House of Representatives, Askira Uba/Hawul Federal Constituency in the just concluded APC primaries, where he was not allowed to partake is an astute grassroot politician with track record of citizen’s engagement in representation.

He said the politician who has over the past two decades of active politics, built an empire with his love for justice and fairness as key attributes of participatory democracy, has already obtained his membership card of the PDP.

According to him, “I am a lover of justice, fairness, equity and consultative decision-making processes in every leadership selection process, and the people should take center stage in deciding who they elect as their leaders, and not somebody or some people sitting somewhere handpicking candidates in a democratic Nigeria of 21st century”, Msheliza said while giving reasons for leaving the APC.

“As such, I hate the politics of suppression, and subjugation, where democrats cannot be allowed to test their popularity freely and openly,” he said.

“That is the reason for leaving the ruling APC for the PDP where ownership of leadership selection processes belongs to the people.

“The recent happenings in Borno state has shown fairness, justice, equity nor characteristics of modern democracy, but exhibition of draconian ways of suppressing independent minded democrats and politics of impositions in the state which made the political environment in APC to be inhabitable to anyone that desires fairly and justice”.

He was reviewed by the zonal chairman of Borno South into the PDP family and had collected his membership card at his ward.

AljazirahNigeria, learnt that Hon Msheliza, who is also a two-term member of the Borno State House of Assembly and represented Hawul State Constituency later represented Askira Uba/Hawul Federal Constituency in the National Assembly, until leaving the APC, and a member of the steering committee of Tinubu Support Group (TSG) heading Borno South.
