An upset is currently brewing in the new but fast growing New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) following moves by other top parties to woo one of its biggest new entrants, Senator Ibrahim Shekarau from the party.

Shekarau, a two-term former governor of Kano State and current senator for Kano Central, had defected from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to the NNPP led by Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, also a former governor of the state, in June this year with thousands of his supporters – a development many described as a major step in the new party’s move to claim Kano state from the APC.
