Senator Shehu Sani, who represented Kaduna Central Senatorial district in the 8th Assembly from 2015-2019, has finally joined the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
Sani, who was elected a senator on the platform of the All Progressive Congress (APC), was unable return to the senate in 2019 following unresolved issue with serving Governor Nasir el-Rufai.
The wrangle between the duo stopped Sani from getting the party ticket, forcing him to defect to the People’s Redemption Party (PRP) under which he contested but lost.
The senator recently dumped the PRP but he did not state his new party.
Confirming his defection, his close aide, Malam 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, September 16, 2021, when he had a meeting with relevant PDP stakeholders in Kaduna.
PlatinumPost had earlier reported that SaharaReporters publisher, Omoyere Sowore, had earlier posted on his Facebook wall the defection of Sani to PDP.
In another defection on Thursday, former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode dumped PDP for APC.
Fani-Kayode made his decision known during a visit to President Muhammadu Buhari, even as he vowed to woo three PDP governors to his new party.
