PHOTOS: Atiku, Okowa, Tambuwal present as Shekarau returns to PDP

Ibrahim Shekarau, former governor of Kano state, has officially defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

TheCable on Sunday reported that Shekarau would be unveiled on Monday to PDP members in Kano.

Iyorchia Ayu, PDP chairman, presented the membership card to Shekarau.

Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the party; Ifeanyi Okowa, governor of Delta state, and his Sokoto counterpart, Aminu Tambuwal were present during defection ceremony.

Until 2018, Shekarau was a member of the PDP, with his exit stemming from the internal rift in the Kano chapter of the party.

He joined the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2019 and went on to contest the Kano central senatorial election on the party’s platform.

A few months ago, he left the ruling party for the NNPP following his rift with Abdullahi Ganduje, governor of Kano.

But just last week, Shekarau said he was done with the NNPP, alleging that Rabiu Kwankwaso, the party’s presidential candidate, betrayed the agreement made with him before joining the party.
