The deputy governor of Kano state, Hafiz Abubakar, has resigned and decamped to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Hafiz who was a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, announced his defection to the opposition PDP on Sunday.

Hafiz is a strong ally of Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, the former governor of the state, who defected some days back with Senator Dino Melaye and 12 other APC senators.

His reason for defecting to PDP according to him include: “I have endured immeasurable and unjustifiable humiliation for over two and a half years without any reason other than my principled position on the issues of governance and the desire to keep the government on track.

“Under the circumstances and given the deteriorating state of affairs and your continued disrespect for the office of the deputy governor as well as your expression of several injustices on my person. I regret to say that I have no option than to succumb to my inner calling.”


Recall that Hafiz had opined that he would decamp to PDP, following Kwankwaso’s last week defection to the party.
