Meanwhile, Malam Ibrahim Shekarau, a former governor of Kano State, has claimed that Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso deceived him and his supporters, which is why they left the party.
This was revealed by Shekarau in an interview on Channels TV, on Thursday, September 1.
Monday marked the official announcement of the senator for Kano Central’s switch from the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He claimed that the Kwankwasiyya movement’s leader purposefully put off carrying out the promises they made before he joined the party until INEC stopped accepting candidates.
Shekarau said, “We made our proposal as a group, as a movement together with all my political associations…We sat down with Rabiu Kwankwaso. I submitted my proposal and he accepted it. He said in one or three days he was going to prepare his own proposal…Then, I together with him will sit down to sort ourselves out and then harmonize and see what we could do for these electable people from various constituencies.
“He and I having governed Kano, we sufficiently know all the key players regardless of the parties they belong.
“I felt it was not a big deal to sit down to organize people from his and my camps, who are electable. We kept on waiting. I submitted this to him on the 10th of May and by the 11th of May, I reminded. Meanwhile, our own movement had taken a decision.”
