The national chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, in company of some members of the National Assembly and national leader of the party Bola Tinubu, is set to meet a former governor of Kano State, Ibrahim Shekarau, in his Mundubawa residence in Kano on Friday.
A terse statement posted by Salihu Tanko Yakasai, the spokesman for the state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, said the governor will lead the top leaders of the party to Mr Shekarau’s residence.
DAILY NIGERIAN gathered that the meeting, which is part of his pre-defection conditions, was organised at the instance of Mr Shekarau in order to hype up his exit and show his political relevance.
In a text message sent to Shekarau Reintegration Committee by Ubale Jakada Kiru, the meeting will hold at Zainab Hall within the former governor’s residence at 10am.
Sule Yau Sule, Mr Shekarau’s spokesman, on Thursday night told DAILY NIGERIAN that the former governor will take final decision on his political future on Saturday.
The chairman of APC in Kano, Abdullahi Abbas, on Wednesday said the return of Mr Shekarau to the party “was a testimony that the ruling party remained the most peaceful platform where politicians irrespective of their status and background could actualize their political aspirations without impunity, injustice and imposition.”
