Abdullahi Ganduje, national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has asked Abba Yusuf, governor of Kano State, to leave the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) and join the ruling party.

The development comes barely a week after the supreme court affirmed the election of Yusuf as the governor of Kano.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared Yusuf as the winner of March 2023 governorship election.

Speaking with reporters in Kano on Thursday after meeting with Yusuf, Ganduje said the doors of the APC are open to all those who want to join its fold.

The APC national chairman asked party members in Kano not to feel bad for losing the state at the Supreme Court, noting that as true Democrats they should give thanks to God.

Ganduje, who is the immediate former governor of Kano, said some governors are expected to join the APC soon.

“We are appealing to those who want to join APC to come,” he said, adding that “in particular, we are inviting the Governor of Kano and his NNPP to join APC.”

Those at the meeting included Ganduje’s former appointees when he was the governor of Kano.
