Ex Kano State Governor, Ibrahim Shekarau has come out to allege that his defection from the New Nigeria People’s Party to the People’s Democratic Party was due to the betrayal of the NNPP presidential candidate, Governor Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso.

He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.

According to him, Kwankwaso’s actions is betrayal, outright disregard and manipulation, noting that what was important was the protection of his image, the truth and integrity.

Shekarau added that he was very dissappointed with the saga that led to his exit from a party he used to care about.

His words, “We joined the party on the 18th of May. Long before then, almost two weeks earlier on, through my discussion with him, we made our proposals. At that time, it was the period of generating candidates of the various political offices to be contested in the 2023 general elections – state assembly, national assembly, governorship and senatorial seats.”

“We sat down with Rabiu Kwankwaso. I submitted this proposal, he accepted it and he said in about one or two, three days, he’s going to prepare his proposal. And then I together with him will sit down to sort ourselves out and harmonise and see what we can do to produce electable people in our various constituencies.”

“This hope and trust and sincerity kept us moving up to the 18th of May where we had a public declaration and Kwankwaso came with all his own political associate it was a very big ceremony.”

“It was at that meeting that he brought the senatorial seat of Kano central form, and presented it to me, he said I was the first to receive the form. At that time as at 18th of May, no other candidate had been identified or listed or given form through the various discussion that we agreed to make.”

“The same 18th of May by the night, midnight, we saw a list released by the party leadership in the state, handwritten list of candidates by their constituencies and indicating as having solved the entire constituencies’ candidate.”

“In fact, in the list released on the 18th by the night, even some constituencies had no name. The following morning I met him and I challenged the list released, we said this is unacceptable because in the entire list, except my name, no any other name from our own movement from our own political association was reflected on the list.”

“We convened a meeting, I had to call a meeting of my political associates, to brief them as to what we went through for three months.”

“But to our surprise, few days later, my brother Rabiu Kwankwaso was on air on the Hausa service of the BBC, saying that there was no way we could be attended to, because we joined the party when it was too late.”
