The Senator representing Kaduna North in the National Assembly, Suleiman Othman Hunkuyi said he joined the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to help remove Governor Nasir El-Rufai out of the Sir Kashim Ibrahim Government House.
Hunkuyi, who recently decamped from the ruling APC alongside other Senators on the floor of the Senate, had since fallen out with Governor El-Rufai, a situation which led to his formation of a faction of the APC in the state.
Hunkuyi made the assertion, while responding on behalf of the defectors at a formal reception for them by the PDP in Kaduna on Monday.
He added that, though God gives power, the APC regime in Kaduna and Nigeria has dealt with the electorates and as such the electorates will retaliate at the right time.
According to him, “We don’t insult, but we tell the truth. I am telling El-Rufai to use the remaining time he has in office to pack his things and be prepared to leave Government House. We don’t insult, but they will feel pains by the truth we speak,”
He further disclosed that, the PDP is full and rebranded, ready to take over.
The Lawmaker admitted what he called “the error of bringing el-Rufai on board”, begging the Kaduna State people and God to forgive him for his role. Adding that, “The engine of APC has been removed along with the tyres.”
He vowed that APC would never come back to power. “We came to join hands with our friends to liberate our friends from the bondage of APC in Kaduna State.”
“Let’s join hand with our great party PDP and change things. Without PDP, there would be no end to untold hardship Nigerians would be suffering. We are praying to God to help us to be united to be successful in reclaiming our state and country,” he said.
Hunkuyi assured all those sacked by Governor El-Rufai that they would be given their jobs back when PDP comes returns to power.
