Ex-governor of Kano State returns to APC


By Juliet Odey
Former governor of Kano State, Malam Ibrahim Shekarau has returned to the All Progressives congress (APC).
State Chairman of the party, Alhaji Abdullahi Abbas, said yesterday that the return of former Governor Ibrahim Shekarau to the APC was a testimony that the ruling party remained the most peaceful platform where politicians irrespective of their status and background could actualize their political aspirations without impunity, injustice and imposition.
He said, “We are also praying for the remaining PDP big wigs to borrow a leaf from Shekarau and return to APC. They will be welcomed and treated fairly…The defection of Shekarau is clear testimony that APC is heading to victory in 2019.”
Some of his (Shekarau’s) political associates spent time persuading him to return to APC before he finally succumbed to their pleas.
“We convinced him that we cannot continue in PDP because the leadership of the party is not ready to allow us practice politics the way it should be.
The arrangement was that Shekarau will buy PDP presidential form, but in the night, some of his political associate who have been persuading him to leave continued with their effort trying to convince him and fortunately for us, he finally accepted that we should move to the APC.
