BREAKING: Ex-Kano Governor, Shekarau, dumps APC for PDP

Ibrahim Shekarau

Ibrahim Shekarau, one of the founding members of APC, has moved to the PDP.

The immediate past governor of Kano State, Ibrahim Shekarau, has dumped the All Progressives Congress, APC, for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Mr. Shekarau, backed by his supporters from the 44 local government areas of Kano, made the declaration at his Bompai GRA residence in Kano on Wednesday.

He 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 entrenchment of democracy,” Mr, Shekarau, the presidential candidate of the defunct All Nigeria Peoples Party, ANPP, in 2011, said.

“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 supporters participated in the declaration and affirmed the decision to defect to PDP.

Mr. Shekarau had last week met with a former Sokoto Governor and founding members of the APC, Attahiru Bafarawa, last week. Mr. Bafarawa 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.

    Good news of the year. I said it here that remain Shekarau and Ali Modu Sherriff, when when Baffarawa took race. Today, Shekarau the criminal has left, remain one blood sucker from Borno state, Ali Modu Sherrif, he will soon pick race too, because no place for hypocrites in APC, it is really too hot for them. They were in APC as moles, but our prayers ejected them out, so will God Almighty eject all corrupt souls in Nigeria.

      Well, let us wait and see.

  • Yahuza Sani Sagagi

    MAlam Ibrahim Shekarau has become an embarrassmenent.
    He has abused the goodwill extended to him by the citizens of Kano.
    We are waiting to see what he’ll achieve with PDP.

  • mickey

    This Politicians wont stop trying to make a fool of nigerians.

  • isa fagge

    Farewell[Umma ta gaida Aisha] we don’t need you any more!

  • Talaka

    Gud ridance 2 bad rubbish! Hanga, Bafarawa, Shekararau, ….,SAS,…etc. Very soon gona ‘ve a clean party.

    • Sadiq Garba

      Who is Hanga again?

      • Talaka

        Original PDP spy already swept away by the broom!

  • Sadiq Garba

    Sychopantic nature in some people would never allow them achieve any goal with their life.
    This is the person that can easily swear by Gods name against speculations that he’s been working for ruling party to satisfy his personal quest for leadership.

    Let malam Ibrahim Shekarau be reminded that, It is God that makes a leader. No amount of movement from the parties will make you different from what you are today. We await your ambassadorial appointment if you can deliver Kano for Jonathan.

  • Idris Mohammad

    Shekarau the serial betrayer. Allah ya raka taki Gona.

  • Indabo

    The defection of the likes of shekarau and Bafarawa is indeed a very good omen to APC and it’s committed leaders in particular and members,admirers,well wishers and the generality of Nigerians that are eagerly yearning for change in the affairs our great nation hence Bafarawa and shekarau were the agents of destabilisation working for PDP since during ANPP days,wishing them an unpleasant journey and crash landing within PDP.

  • muhammad

    Remember the kano people doesn’t need him.

  • uba

    political prostitute, dont blame him his account has since started going down so he has to look somewhere else to add to the stolen ones else, he will end of as a cripple politician with no relevance. i just want to see how this man can deliver kano to GEJ comes 2015

  • AAA

    Good riddance to bad rubbish, we are free from one mole. The rest would soon follow you.

    • Zaharaddin Karal

      A Mole indeed. Shekarau rides on Buhari, s popularity in Kano. He was then engaged by PDP to contest the presidential election so as to divide Kanawa votes. Now he is exposed. Munafuki .

  • muhammad adam

    That’s what we are knwn for, abusing elders and ouselves,and that’s why peace understanding, cooperation and goodwill is never our culture but psychophancy and intolerance, shekarauis never wrong for taking sater decision with his supporters on going to pdp, since Bola tinubu and his team are bent on hiding things to themselves.politics in the south west and the north is remarkably different. God judge us with our intentions. We wish Shekarau God’s guidance.

    • AAA

      Muhammad we are not abusing him but rather expressing our happiness for his actions of leaving APC to PDP where he rightly belongs. And now Kano is APC, Shekarau ko akwatin ka a Giginyu baza ka ci ba

      • muhammad adam

        You are still repeating what i said islam forbid ie mocking or abusing elders.wait and see if we shall continue this ,the whole country not only the north will conti ue to stagnate wal iyaz billah. So i and you should from today make comments on issues with sense of maturity and goodwill on our brothers. Mention all the past leaders of the 2nd republic except few of them, they all participate di
        n one way or the other in bringing us to the present state of curruption and anarchy.Allah Ya kara karemu da kasarmu. Thank you and God bless you

    • mengs

      They keep moving frm one party to the other b/c of their selfish interest kawoi.

  • Hausafulani

    Comes 2015 elections God willing Kwankwaso will beat you on Senatorial race that is if u a rewarded to contest for the seat.Whatelse in life this man wants from Kano people.Anyway we pray to be alive and witness the election so that we shall know if truly Shekarau has meaningful followers in Kano.Right from onset when he learnt Kwankwaso’s plan to decamp to APC he was not happy,continue to be absent in any APC forum and finally now publicly announced to be in the party he was secretly working for since 2013.

  • paul preston

    very soon everybody in Kano will move to PDP but we will not accept Kwankwa
