Former Kano State Governor Ibrahim Shekarau dumps PDP for APC

A new twist has developed in the politics of Kano State as a former governor of the state, Ibrahim Shekarau, has dumped the opposition Peoples Democratic Party.
Ya’u Sule, who did not give reasons for the decision, however told NAN that Shekarau had already called for a stakeholders meeting to be held today (Tuesday).
He explained that during the meeting, the former governor and the stakeholders would decide where he (Shekarau) will go.
“The former governor has left PDP and has called for a stakeholders meeting today (Tuesday) from where he will decide where to go.
“You know he will not take decision without meeting the stakeholders which has always been his habit,” Ya’u Sule said.
Mr Sule said the decision of the former governor is connected with the recent dissolution of party executives in the state.
The PDP State Executive Committee was dissolved by the National Working Committee of the party on Friday in Abuja.
Mr Shekarau’s spokesperson, Ya’u Sule, disclosed the defection in an interview with the BBC Hausa on Tuesday.
Although he did not disclose the new party his principal is moving to, there are already indications Mr Shekarau will return to the All Progressives Congress (APC), a party he helped form in the build up to the 2015 election.
