Nine PDP members defect to NNPP in Kano

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has lost nine of its members of the State House of Assembly in Kano to the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP).

Uba Abdullahi, the Public Relations Officer of the Assembly, confirmed the defection of the nine lawmakers from the PDP to the NNPP.

According to him, the lawmakers had sent a letter to the Speaker of the State Assembly notifying the House of their defection to the NNPP.

Some of the reasons given by the lawmakers, the statement explained, bordered on leadership tussle in the PDP both at the State and the national levels.

The statement gave the names of the defected members as Isyaku Ali Danja (Gezawa Constituency), Umar Musa Gama (Nassarawa Constituency), Aminu Sa’adu Ungogo (Ungogo Constituency), Lawan Hussain Chediyar ‘Yan Gurasa (Dala Constituency) and Tukur Muhammad (Fagge Constituency).

Others, according to the statement are Mu’azzam El-Yakub (Dawakin Kudu Constituency), Garba Shehu Fammar (Kibiya Constituency), Abubakar Uba Galadima (Bebeji Constituency) and Mudassir Ibrahim Zawaciki (Kumbotso Constituency).

The Kano state House of Assembly had on 29th April, 2022, announced the defection of Salisu Gwangwazo, the member representing Kano Municipal, from the PDP to the All Progressives Congress, APC, due to internal crisis in the party.
