Six days before the presidential and national assembly elections, the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Kano State chapter defected to the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP).

In a grand rally, the national chairman of the NNPP Prof. Rufa’i Ahmed Alkali, and the party’s deputy presidential candidate Bishop Isaac Idahosa received the decampees in Kano on Sunday.

The PDP executive members under the leadership of the embattled state chairman of the party Alhaji Shehu Wada Sagagi decided to dump the party as a result of improper internal democracy and nepotism by the national leadership of the party.

Speaking at the rally, Shehu Sagagi said himself along with 36 Kano state executive members of the PDP, over 700 local government executives, over 8,000 ward executives,  44 national delegates, and 1,452 ward delegates have joined the NNPP.

“Politics is a game of numbers, we are optimistic that Sen. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso would take us to victory at both national and state levels,” said Sagagi

He further accused the PDP of sabotaging itself in states like Kano by allowing the likes of Sen. Kwankwaso to dump the party despite their massive followership not only in the state but the nation at large.

“To us, this is a homecoming, we are real politicians and we have joined a political party that plays the real politics, I am today very much happy rejoining Sen. Kwankwaso once again a year after our departure”

In a statement issued by Sanusi Bature Dawakin Tofa,  Chief Spokesperson of the NNPP Campaign Council in Kano state quoted the NNPP national chairman congratulating the new decampees for their wise decision to join the NNPP.

In his response, the deputy presidential candidate of the NNPP Bishop Isaac Idahosa received the decampees with joy, saying with this massive and historic defection, NNPP would emerge victorious at the polls.
