Six Kano lawmakers dump APC for PDP

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).

In the letter read by the Speaker, Kabiru Rurum, the six lawmakers said they defected to PDP “based on the premise that the party (APC) has failed to meet the aspirations and yearnings of the people we represent.”



The defectors include: Yusuf Babangida Sulaiman (Gwale), Rabiu Saleh (Gwarzo) , Zubairu Mahmud (Madobi), Yusuf Abdullahi Falgore (Rogo), Hamza Sule (Bichi) and Isiaku Ali Danja (Gezawa).

Their defection came barely 24 hours after the state Deputy Governor, Hafiz Abubakar resigned from his position and defected to PDP along with 10 other aides of the state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje.

The state House of Assembly has 40 members.
