The All Progressives Congress(APC) announced today that former Kano State governor, Ibrahim Shekarau has returned to the party.
Shekarau dumped the PDP and joined the APC after intense negotiations with Kano governor Abdulahi Ganduje, APC National chairman, Adams Oshiomole, and National leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
Comrade Adams Oshiomole, Chief Bola Tinubu and Kano State Governor Umar Ganduje this afternoon, arrived the home of former Kano State Governor, Mallam Ibrahim Shekarau to meet with him to negotiate his defection to the APC tomorrow.
Pictures and videos of the meeting were shared by Governor Ganduje’s special assistant on media.
It had previously been rumoured that Mallam Shekarau was going to defect to the APC, but he said that, although he was unhappy with developments in the PDP, he had not yet taken a decision on what he would do. He said that he was still consulting and that he would make his decision known to the public at the right time.
Recall that, the Today’s Echo reported yesterday that the PDP chairman, Prince Uche Secondus had brokered a reconciliation between Mallam Shekarau and another former Kano State governor, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso
However, Governor Ganduje’s special assistant on new media, Salisu Tanko Yakasai announced this morning that Mallam Shekarau would meet with APC leaders ahead of his defection tomorrow and he has been giving minute by minute details of the meeting.
The meeting appears to have been fruitful because a few hours ago, APC announced that Shekarau is back!
