The Senator representing Kaduna North in the National Assembly, Suleiman Othman Hunkuyi said he joined the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to help kick Governor Nasir El-Rufai out of the Sir Kashim Ibrahim Government House.

Hunkuyi who recently decamped from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) alongside other Senators on the floor of the Senate, had since fallen apart with Governor El-Rufai, a situation which led to his spearheading a faction of the APC in the state.

Hunkuyi made the assertion while responding on behalf of the decampees at a formal reception for them by the (PDP) in Kaduna on Monday.

He added that, God gives power but the APC regime in Kaduna and Nigeria has dealt with the electorates and the electorates will retaliate at the right time.

According to him, “We don’t insult, but we tell the truth. I am telling El-Rufai to use the remaining time he has in office to pack his things and be prepared to leave Government House. We don’t insult, but they will feel pains by the truth we speak,” he said.

He further disclosed that, PDP is full and rebranded, ready to take over.

The Lawmaker admitted what he described as ‘the error of bringing el-Rufai on board’, begging the Kaduna State people and God to forgive him for his roles. Adding that, “The engine of APC has been removed along with the tyres.”

He vowed that APC will never come back to power. “We came to join hands with our friends to liberate our friends from the bondage of APC in Kaduna State.

“Let’s join hand with our great party PDP and change things. Without PDP, there would be no end to untold hardship Nigerians would be suffering. We are praying to God to help us to be united to be successful in reclaiming our state and country,” he said.

Hunkuyi assured all those sacked by Governor El-Rufai that they would be given back their jobs when PDP comes back to power.

In his remarks, former Kaduna State Governor, Dr Mukhtar Ramalan Yero said that PDP is back and the people are yearning for its return to power.

PDP Chairman Kaduna State, Honourable Felix Hassan Hyet while welcoming them back to the party, said that they would work together with the decampees to liberate Kaduna State and Nigeria from the shackles of APC.

He said all the mistakes APC are making is to propel PDP back to power.

“Hunkuyi brought El-Rufai to power. I believe he has realized his mistake and would work hard towards correcting that by helping to send him packing from Sir Kashim Ibrahim House,” he added.
