Shekarau Dumps NNPP

Former Kano State Governor and Senator representing Kano Central at the Senate, Ibrahim Shekarau has announced his exit from his new-found New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP).

He said his decision to dump the NNPP was because his followers were denied nomination forms to pursue their political ambitions in the party.

Shekarau, who is representing Kano Central at the Senate, defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to join the NNPP.

 Shekarau told a crowd of supporters yesterday at the Kano Foundation Office, on BUK Road.

Shekarau did not however, announce his next political move, but there was jubilation in the camp of the ruling APC.
