2023: What Shekarau Said After Returning To PDP
A former Kano State Governor, Ibrahim Shekarau, has asked his supporters to ensure the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, emerges victorious in 2023.
Naija News reports that Senator representing Kano Central made this known during his official return to the party on Monday in Kano State.
The former Minister of Education also urged his supporters to work for the PDP’s victory in the 2023 general elections, saying that he has dumped the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP).
Shekarau was received into the PDP by the party’s presidential candidate, Vice Presidential candidate and Governor of Delta State, Ifeanyi Okowa, and the party’s National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, among others.
He said, “I welcome our dignitaries to this memorable occasion, particularly the PDP presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar; former Vice-President Namadi Sambo; the PDP National Chairman, PDP governors and other guests.
“I, Ibrahim Shakarau, inform you that from Monday, August 29, 2022, my supporters and I have dumped the NNPP and joined the PDP.
“I have written to the NNPP National Chairman, chairmen at the state, local governments, and ward levels of the party that I have dumped the NNPP.
“I have equally written to INEC Chairman and to the Kano State Resident Electoral Commissioner of INEC that I am no longer contesting the senatorial position on the platform of the NNPP.”
