Former Kano State Governor, Mallam Ibrahim Shekarau, has concluded plans to finally defect from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to All Progressive Congress (APC).
This was disclosed to newsmen late Monday by Shekarau’s media aide, Sule Ya’u Sule, who said the former governor’s decision to dump PDP was concluded after heated debates and wide consultations between him and his supporters.
Sule said, “I want confirm to you that Shekarau has decided to defect from PDP to APC due to the injustice meted on him and his supporters by the PDP leadership.
“My boss has met with Kano State Governor, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje in Abuja yesterday and concluded plans for our return to APC. He will meet with all the stakeholders concern in Kano and than made his decamping public.”
The Media aide further affirmed that there is no way Mallam Shekarau could remain in PDP watching the national leadership of the party, dancing to the tune of Kwankwaso at the detriment of other PDP big wings.
Sule said Shekarau had made wider consultation among his supporters before he finally returned to his former party.
