Kaduna 2023: Sen. Shehu Sani joins PDP

Senator Shehu Sani, who represented Kaduna Central Senatorial district in the 8th Assembly from 2015-2019, has joined the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

Sani, who was elected a senator on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), was unable to return to the senate in 2019 following unresolved issues 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) on which platform he contested but lost.

Recently the senator 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.

A source told Periscope International that Sani’s defection to the PDP is to enable  him to contest the governorship of Kaduna State in 2023 on the platform of the party.
