The legislators, who are loyal to Rabi’u Kwankwaso, former governor of the state, announced their defection in a letter they sent to the house.

Kabiru Rurum, the speaker, who read the letter said the six lawmakers explained that their defection to the PDP was on the premise that the party (APC) has “failed to meet the aspirations and yearnings of the people we represent”.

The defectors are Yusuf Sulaiman (Gwale), Rabiu Saleh (Gwarzo), Zubairu Mahmud (Madobi), Yusuf Abdullahi Falgore (Rogo), Hamza Sule (Bichi) and Isiaku Ali Danja (Gezawa).

Their defection came barely 24 hours after Hafiz Abubakar, the deputy governor, resigned from his position and defected to PDP along with 10 other aides of Abdullahi Ganduje, the governor.

The Kano assembly has 40 members.
