Ahead of the 2019 general elections, the former deputy speaker of the Kwara state House of Assembly, Hon Mohammed Suka-Baba, has defected from the Peoples Democratic Party to the All Progressives Congress.
The former deputy speaker defected alongside some members of PDP in Kaiama Local Government Area of Kwara state.
Suka-baba, who burnt his PDP membership card, stated that his reasons for defection was borne out of promptings by his supporters in the area.
He said, “As a Fulani man, I am defecting to APC because my people want APC; I want to say I am back as I was a founding member of APC in the state. APC is a progressive party and anybody that wants the progress of Kwara state and Nigeria, in general, must join APC.
“I am not joining APC to create any faction in the party. I will still talk to some of them in PDP to join the party of the progressives which is APC.
