A former Deputy Speaker of the Kwara House of Assembly, Mohammed Suka-Baba, says his defection to the All Progressives Congress from the Peoples Democratic Party was in the interest of his community.
Suka-Baba said this on Thursday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Ilorin.
He explained that President Muhammadu Buhari had done much for the community.
Suka-Baba, who hails from Venra, in Kaiama Local Government Area of Kwara State was the Deputy Speaker in the house from 2003 to 2007.
According to him, APC remains the only platform through which the aspiration of his people can be met.
“Buhari is doing much for us; the Kishi-Kaiama road is under construction. Just last week, the Federal Executive Council approved the construction of Kaiama-Wawa road. These have been the agitation of our people for a long time,” he said.
He said the community had resolved to work for the re-election of Buhari and other APC candidates in the forthcoming election.
The former lawmaker stated that his return to the APC was a home-coming, as he was a founding member of the party.
Suka-Baba reportedly led hundreds of his supporters from the PDP to APC.
