The lawmaker representing Jada/Mbulo in the Adamawa State House of Assembly, Hammantukur Yettusuri, has dumped the Peoples Democratic Party for the New Nigeria Peoples Party.
Yettusuri, who is the majority leader in the house, represents the constituency of the presidential candidate of PDP, Atiku Abubakar.
The lawmaker joined NNPP on Tuesday during a ceremony in the state capital, Yola.
Yettusuri was initiated into the fast growing party with the trademark cap of the Kwankwasiyya Movement.
The lawmaker while addressing newsmen said he joined the party led by Rabiu Kwankwaso because he was driven by a quest for justice.
He said, “I’m in the NNPP to join forces with other good Nigerians to fix the system. You see, if a system continues with imposition ideology, the eventual results become implosion.
“As for me and my numerous supporters, we will commence activities immediately to ensure NNPP’s victory in the 2023 general elections.”
He was also handed the party’s automatic ticket for the Jada/Toungo/Ganye/Mayo Belwa federal constituency.
