Shekarau defects to PDP in Senate

Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress

The senator representing Kano Central, Ibrahim Shekarau has officially defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on the floor of the Senate, a month after he dumped the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP).

Announcing Shekarau’s defection through a letter received to that effect, the President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, said the Kano Central senator wished to officially inform his colleagues of his defection.

Shekarau, in the letter read by the Senate President, said his defection and thousands of his supporters in Kano from NNPP to PDP was to carry out their political aspirations in a party well disposed to them.

After the announcement, PDP senators led by the minority leader, Philip Aduda and the minority whip, Chukwuka Utazi (Enugu North), joyfully embraced Shekarau for defecting to their party.
