The lawmaker representing Adamawa South Senatorial District in the Senate, Senator Hassan Ahmed Barata, has swelled the ranks of All Progressives Congress (APC) senators in the Upper Legislative Chamber by dumping the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) to team up with other progressive democrats in the huge task of repositioning Nigeria.
According to Senator Babafemi Ojudu, Ekiti Central Senatorial District and spokesperson for APC Senators, Barata described the APC as the answer to Nigerians’ prayers for a veritable alternative that would collectively harness the potentials of Nigerians to re-direct the ship of state from the path of retrogression to progress and for the realization of individual dreams of progress and sense of belonging in their fatherland.
Senator Hassan Ahmed Barata, who currently represents the people of Adamawa South, is an astute grassroots politician with immense experience and strength of character.
He was a member of the House of Representatives between 1999 and 2007 and is currently the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Culture and Tourism where his brilliance, understanding of topical issues, ability to inspire and motivate his colleagues and foster harmony in the line of duty have marked him out as a detribalised Nigerian driven by patriotism to the country.
According to Ojudu, “with this recent defection and many more to come, the march to victory is certain and it only confirms that the PDP is in the throes of death”.
