Gombe Deputy Minority Leader dumps PDP in anger


Deputy Minority Leader of the Gombe State House of Assembly, Rambi Ayala, has resigned his membership of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

Ayala represents the Billiri East constituency in the House of Assembly. ‎

The lawmaker announced the development on Tuesday after a Gombe High Court dismissed his application that sought the declaration of his suspension by the PDP illegal.

The Speaker, Abubakar Ibrahim and his deputy Siddi Buba, who are members of the All Progressives Congress, were at the court with Ayala.

Ayala explained that his decision was a result of the undemocratic nature of the PDP in Gombe State.

“Take note that I hereby resign my membership of this party (PDP). Sadly, the party has become grossly and bitterly divided and dangerously lawless,’’ he said. ‎

Stressing that he was not satisfied with the way PDP treated him, ‎Ayala recalled that he was suspended on July 28 without a fair hearing.

According to him, he was not invited to appear before a disciplinary committee.‎
