Oshiomhole talks of reunion as Shekarau finally dumps PDP for APC/

Former governor of Kano State, Ibrahim Shekarau, has confirmed his exit from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to the All Progressives Congress, APC.

The former governor met with the national chairman of the ruling party, Adams Oshiomhole, and Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano on Friday.

After the meeting, Shekarau announced that he had returned to the APC.

In his remarks, Oshiomhole has said that former Kano Governor, Ibrahim Shekarau’s return to the ruling party was a matter of reunion rather than defection.


While describing Shekarau as one of the founding father of the APC, he stated that the reunion with the former governor would help advance the position of the party and that of the state and country at large.


According to the APC national chairman, “Going by the records, nobody is more progressive than the former Minister whose records while in power preceded that of others.


“I am most delighted to be at your residence to officially welcome you back to our great party the APC, the party you assisted to form. We know that you would have not committed great amount of efforts in the formation of the All Progressive Congress right from the beginning if you didn’t believe in it, but due to some issues, you had to leave.


“I have always said that, going forward, the real progressives would unite and the conservatives would move away. The conservatives have moved away and that offers us a new opportunity for the real progressives to reunite.


“I have come to pay my respect to you your excellency, to look forward to working with you and the Governor of the state whose Progressive credentials are also well known.”
