A former governor of Kano State, Senator Ibrahim Shekarau, has formally announced his defection from the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

This comes barely three months after Shekarau defected to NNPP from the All Progressives Congress. He had been dissatisfied with “the non-inclusion of his supporters by the NNPP leadership.” Shekarau made the declaration on Monday at his Mundubawa home in Kano.

He was formally received into the PDP by the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar and the party’s national chairman, Senator Iyorchia Ayu, among other top PDP members.
