The leader of the ex-councillors, Tukur Magami, said their decision to leave their former party followed their strong belief in the leadership style of the governor.

He mentioned especially his fight against insecurity and his provision of good political atmosphere in all parts of the state.

He said that the present administration had proved that it was a government for all as it did not victimise or threaten the political affiliation of members of other political parties.

According to the forum’s leader, such an administration needs the coming together and support of all for it to continue to provide democratic dividends to all citizens in the state.
