Shekarau set to leave NNPP, blames Kwankwaso

Former Kano State Governor, Ibrahim Shekarau, has explained that his group has concluded arrangements to leave New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP), accusing the presidential candidate, Rabiu Kwankwaso, of betraying the trust reposed in him.

Shekarau spoke, yesterday, at a meeting with Shura Advisory Council (SAC) at Kano Foundation Hall. SAC was drawn from the 44 local councils of Kano State

He said his group aligned with Kwankwaso a couple of months ago, adding: “All the agreements we had with Kwankwaso were betrayed by him and his boys. They did not accommodate anybody from my camp, apart from my humble self and one other person.

“We had reached an agreement to accommodate my supporters into various elective positions in the party; but until now, the committee set up could not accommodate one single person apart from the senatorial slot given to me. I will never be a party to injustice. My integrity is utmost and no political position will make me compromise it and that of my people. Nobody will use position or money against my integrity.”

Shekarau also said that Kwankwaso’s governorship candidate, Abba Yusuf, who was given the responsibility to look at areas to accommodate his people into various elective positions, never did so or even called for meeting, let alone allowing his supporters to contest.

“Nobody will use money to change my conscience. I was a governor for eight years in Kano and people believed in my integrity. I am still living in a rented house in Abuja and never allotted a single plot of land to myself when I served as governor in Kano. I challenge anyone who knows my plot of land to expose it,” he lamented.
