2019: PDP Governorship Aspirant Defects to APC
As the 2019 general elections draw closer, more defections have continued.
Muhammad Sani-Bello, a former governorship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party in Kaduna State has formally joined the ruling All Progressives Congress.
Sani-Bello announced his decision to join the APC at a news conference on Saturday in Kaduna.
He said he consulted with different political parties before arriving at the decision to join the APC.
Sani-Bello dumped the PDP on Nov. 12, due to what he described as unending mistrust between him and the state leadership of the party, and its governorship candidate, Isa Ashiru.
He said: “Based on consultations with my supporters and other stakeholders, I have decided that from today Nov. 12, 2018, I Dr Muhammad Sani-Bello, cease to be a member of the PDP.”
According to him, the mistrust emanated from the refusal of the party leaders in the state to put the term of consensus which led to his stepping down for Ashiru into writing prior to the party’s governorship primaries.
He added that he was also not comfortable working with Ashiru, whose academic credentials were allegedly in question.
“Based on my findings, the documentation of the candidate contains certain flaws which remained unexplained,’’ he stressed.
