Kana who announced his defection in a letter addressed to Speaker Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, read at plenary yesterday, said he was leaving the APC because of “inconsistencies in the party’s activities and ideals” in Nasarawa State.
Speaking to after plenary, Kana said his decision to leave the APC was because he was not taken along in the decisions of the party in his home state of Nasarawa.
He said he was taken aback during the just concluded local government polls in the state where he was “completely isolated” in taking the decisions on how APC could face the elections.
