A former Governor of Kano State, Malam Ibrahim Shekarau, has described the defection of Senator Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso from APC to PDP as a welcome development but urged him to abide by the rules.
Speaking through his media aide, Sule Ya’u Sule, Shekarau who is the PDP leader in Kano said he hoped Kwankwaso had changed.
There were fears that many of those that defected to the PDP yesterday would have to fight for supremacy in their states where some chieftains had institutionalized themselves in the last three years.
“I hope the PDP has received a reformed Kwankwaso. I hope it is not the old Kwankwaso I knew,” Shekarau said.
“I hope he will this time around abide by the rules and regulations of the PDP. I hope he will not repeat what he did after he joined APC in 2015. At that time, he took over everything leaving us with empty hand,” he said.
Shekarau regretted that the party they had labored for was unilaterally handed over to Kwankwaso in 2015.
“I hope Kwankwaso is not coming to PDP to repeat the injustice he did in 2015. If everybody will be allowed to play his card according to rules of the party, that will be better for him (Kwankwaso) and every member of the party,” he added.
