Minna - A former Speaker of the Niger State House of Assembly, Barrister Adamu Usman, has dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC), reports Daily Trust.

Usman said this on Tuesday when he registered as an APC member at his Jebba-North ward in Mokwa Local Government Area.

He said having analysed happenings within the PDP since 2013, he decided to remain passive, hence his decision not to re-contest in the 2015 general elections.

Usman according to News24 was impeached few days to the end of the seventh Niger State House of Assembly in 2015.

He was impeached after he fell out with then governor of the state Babangida Aliyu.
