Six members of Kano State House of Assembly on Wednesday announced their defection from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The legislators announced their defection in a letter they sent to the House.
Speaker Kabiru Rurum, who read out 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 were: 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 the state Deputy Governor, Hafiz Abubakar resigned from his position and defected to PDP along with 10 other aides of the state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje.
