Citing the lack of facilities in the district and discrimination with it as the main cause of his resignation from PDP, the youth leader blamed previous governments for the sufferings of the people and hoped that Bashir Ah Dar would fight for the rights of the people of the district.
He also said that the increased number of political workers joining PC is a clear sign of PC’s wave in political fields of state.
