Rabiu Kwankwaso, a former Governor of Kano State has stated that he dumped the People’s Democratic Party because the Kano Chapter of the party do not value him.
He made this known while receiving his NNPP membership card from his ward chairman in Abuja.
Kwankwaso said “We had a situation in April last year where zonal positions were being shared among the states and all leaders in the six other states were given the opportunity to nominate. But in Kano, some people felt I wasn’t that important so they had to do what they did.”
“That is what triggered the issue (defection) and I spent almost a year now waiting for PDP to talk to me, even the new leadership, to come and talk to me; they didn’t want to talk to me,” he said.
“For that reason, I felt there are irreconcilable differences between my humble self and many other leaders and they are mainly based on ideology.”
You would recall the former Governor only recently dumped the PDP for the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP)
Kwankwaso, was a PDP presidential aspirant in the 2019 elections and it is believed that he would be flying the Presidential flag of the NNPP in 2023.
