The Senator representing Kano Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Malam Ibrahim Shekarau, has explained why he dumped the New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP) for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The former Kano state governor said he is not after a position or office but working to protect his integrity, dignity and freedom as a citizen.
He further stated that wherever he goes, and there are signs of a lack of fairness and justice, he will leave.
Shekarau stated this while announcing his defection to the PDP on Monday in Kano.
He publicly announced that he is no more the NNPP Senatorial candidate, adding that he and all his supporters have moved to the PDP.
“It is not office or position that we are interested in. It is our integrity, dignity and freedom that we are protecting.
“Our political ideology as a group is moved by our commitment to fairness and justice to all. Anywhere we move to and there is no fairness and justice, me and my supporters move along.
“I have since notified the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of my intention to dump the Senatorial candidacy under the NNPP and completed the due processes.
“We told you our reason since we established a 30-members committee of the Shura members. They sat and came up with this decision we are announcing today” he declared.
