Senator Ibrahim Shekarau, representing Kano Central has explained why he joined the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, after dumping the New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP).

Shekarau said that his decision to defect to PDP was the final outcome of the Shura Committee formed by his supporters.

According to Shekarau, he is not after position or office, but working to protect his integrity, dignity and freedom as a citizen.

Former Kano State governor stated this while delivering an address announcing his defection to PDP on Monday.

Shekarau added further that wherever he goes to and there are signs of lack of fairness and justice he will leave.

He publicly announced that he is no more the Senatorial candidate under NNPP, adding he and all his supporters have moved to the PDP.

“It is not office or position that we are interested in. It is our integrity, dignity and freedom that we are protecting.

“Our political ideology as a group is moved by our commitment to fairness and justice to all. Anywhere we move to and there is no fairness and justice, me and my supporters move along.

“I have since notified the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of my intention to dump the Senatorial candidacy under the NNPP and completed the due processes.

“We told you our reason since we established a 30-members committee of the Shura members.

“They sat and came up with this decision we are announcing today(Monday),” he declared.
