Former Kano State Governor Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, has stated that he will leave the People’s Democratic Party PDP to the New Nigeria Peoples Party NNPP before the end of March.
Though he has not stated the reason for his choice of NNPP, Kwankwaso had last month accused the two major parties of failure, saying they have nothing to offer Nigerians to win the 2023 general elections.
Meanwhile, WikkiTimes had on February 23 reported that Kwankwaso, ex-Minister of Sports Solomon Dalung, Alhaji Buba Galadima and other prominent Nigerians, had launched a political organization tagged ‘The National Movement’ TNM ahead of the 2023 general elections.
The former Governor while speaking to BBC Hausa, confirmed that he was well on his way to joining the New Nigeria Peoples Party.
A source close to him alleged that there is no fair play in the running of the PDP, which forced Senator Kwankwaso to pack up and leave.
Earlier, Senator Kwankwaso expressed his displeasure over the PDP’s attempt to keep him apart despite his contributions to the party.
Kwankwaso defected to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) from the All Progressives Congress (APC) after the 2015 general election, following a bitter feud with his successor, Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.
In 2019, he appointed former Commissioner Abba Kabir Yusuf as the PDP’s candidate for Governor of Kano State, although he lost to Governor Ganduje, the present Governor of Kano State.
