KADUNA: Shehu Sani joins PDP

A FORMER lawmaker representing Kaduna Central, Senator Shehu Sani, has joined the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

Sani had won the seat at the Senate on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2015.

Due to a conflict of interest with Kaduna State Governor Nasir el-Rufai, Sani lost his bid for a return ticket in 2019.

He, however, joined the People’s Redemption Party (PRP) in a last-minute effort but ultimately lost the seat to APC’s Uba Sani.  He left the PRP in July.

Confirming his defection, Sani’s close aide, Suleiman Ahmed, said, “Yes, Distinguished Senator Shehu Sani has finally settled to join the PDP but official ceremony and reception will be in the next two weeks all things being equal.”

He said Sani confirmed his defection on Thursday when he had a meeting with PDP stakeholders in Kaduna.

Sani’s defection to the PDP comes as one of the opposition party’s chieftains Femi Fani-Kayode moved to the APC.
