It was gathered that Yuguda’s supporters matched to the Secretariat of the Nigeria Union of Journalists in Bauchi where they publicly tore their PDP membership cards, Saturday.

A two term Governor of Bauchi State on the platform of the party, Yaguda was said to have dumped PDP .

Yuguda was said to have spoken to journalists in Bauchi over the telephone on Saturday that he decided to leave the PDP because the party had lost focus and presently lacked the will to bring development to Nigeria.

Yuguda did however not disclose the political party to which he is headed, saying he was still consulting his supporters.

“Already I have told my supporters that I will not force them to leave PDP. Anybody that wants to remain in PDP is free to do so and whoever wants to move with me is welcome.

“I decided to leave PDP because the party can no longer bring development to Nigeria, it’s unfortunate that the party has lost focus,” he said.

Yuguda also prayed for the success of President Muhammadu Buhari in the discharge of his duties as president.

“We must always pray for the success of leaders because the Holy Quran admonishes people to pray for their leaders to succeed and that is why we should pray for the success of President Buhari’s administration,” he said.
