Former Governor of Kano and one of the founding members of APC, Ibrahim Shekarau, has dumped the All Progressives Congress, APC, for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Shekarau, along with his supporters from the 44 local government areas of Kano, made the declaration at his Bompai GRA residence in Kano on Wednesday.
The former presidential candidate for the defunct All Nigerian Peoples Party, ANPP, said the decision is to satisfy the aspirations of the people of the state who felt left out from the APC.
“We intended with the merger to form a solid foundation for the entrenchment of democracy,” adding that 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.
Shekarau had last week met with a former Sokoto Governor and founding members of the APC, Attahiru Bafarawa, who has since decamped to the PDP.
Both men accuse the APC of giving the party’s structures in their states to their current state governors who last year decamped to the APC from the PDP.
