Ibrahim Shekarau, the immediate past Governor of Kano State, has dumped the All Progressives Congress, APC, for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP
Shekarau made the declaration at his Bompai GRA residence in Kano on Wednesday in the presence of his supporters from the 44 local government areas of Kano State.
In his words, he said, “We intended with the merger to form a solid foundation for entrenchment of democracy”
“The Legacy Group sacrificed all interests for the merger, but for the past six months, all agreements reached by the merged parties had not being met.
“No clear leaders, no registration of APC members at any levels. This shows a clear lack of commitment, transparency and accountability to all concerned,” he said.
The presidential candidate of the defunct All Nigeria Peoples Party, ANPP, in 2011 noted that the decision to dump APC for PDP is to satisfy the aspirations of the people of the state who felt left out from the APC.
Shekarau had a meeting last week with former Sokoto Governor, Attahiru Bafarawa who had since defected to PDP.
