Six All Progressives Congress members in Kano state have dumped the party and crossed over to the Peoples Democratic Party.
Six members of Kano State House of Assembly on Wednesday announced their defection from the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), according to Daily Post.
The decamped lawmakers represent Gwarzo, Gwale, Gezawa, Rogo, Madobi and Bichi Local Government Areas of Kano state.
Recall that on Tuesday, a former special adviser attached to the Deputy Governor’s Office at the state Government House, Hafiz Ahmed Bichi, who is among the 10 Senior Special Advisers (SSAs) that tendered their resignation letters on Monday, revealed that 10 Senior Special Assistants and the six lawmakers, have concluded plans to defect and are even lobbying more of their colleagues.
He revealed that their actions is because of the unresolved dispute between the state Governor, Alhaji Abdullahi Ganduje and his predecessor, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso.
According to Bichi, since their leader (Kwankwaso) had left the party for the PDP, they have no choice than to follow suit.
