Senator Ibrahim Shekarau, a former governor of Kano state, revealed his choice to leave Rabiu Kwankwaso’s New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP).
He did not, however, reveal to which party he is defecting.
At the Kano Foundation headquarters on BUK Road on Monday, Shekarau addressed a gathering of supporters and said that Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, the former governor, had betrayed him and made him seem bad.

The former governor reflected on their interactions during Kwankwaso’s short tenure in the NNPP and noticed with shock that he was given the forms to run for the Senate alone, abandoning his team of supporters to live in poverty.
He said on 5th May 2022 long before he and Kwankwaso joined NNPP, “I personally met him at his country home and discussed extensively my decisions to follow him to his new party and he expressed deep happiness”.
Shekarau said that the proposal was a list of my supporters who were running for various political positions; when I brought this up to Kwankwaso, he assured me that he was aware of the situation and that he would take appropriate action.
“Similarly, on 16-5-2022, Kwankwaso came to my house at about 9pm and we still discussed extensively the same issues he even called five people including Abba Kabir, Kawu Sumaila, Alhassan Rirum and two others and presented them to me as those to make the lists of contestants”.
“During the meeting which led to my decamping, Kwankwaso came with my Senatorial Form alone and sneaked it to me telling me that I was the first to receive it and I asked him the ones for my supporters he said it would be done”.
“Since then Kwankwaso kept deceiving me and only for him, to much later say we are late for my supporters to be on the lists, and there was nothing he could do”.
Shekarau said that despite all of these and other lies, he has no place in the NNPP because of the way his party politics always favors his followers, and any effort to do so would be strongly opposed.
