Former Niger Delta Minister, Usani Dumps APC


A former Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Usani Usani, has reportedly defected from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), to the Peoples Redemption Party, (PRP).


Although he is yet to make his decision public, inside sources knowledgeable about the move told our reporter that the former Minister will officially unveil his new political party in the coming days.

A pioneer member of the ruling APC, the 62 years old Nko-born politician, was appointed by President Muhammadu Buhari as the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs between November 2015 and May 2019.

Last month, in an interview with our reporter, the former Minister insisted that he will be contesting the governorship election under the APC, “I have tried to see the Governor, but maybe because of his busy schedule, he is yet to give me a date. I feel like the leader of our party in the State, I should give him the respect that he deserves. But if I wait for a while and I still can’t see him, then I will have to send him an electronic message by way of informing him,” he said.

He had over the weekend detached himself from the State APC consensus candidate which produced Sen. Bassey Otu as the party’s governorship flag bearer.
