Ex-Kano Governor reportedly dumps APC for PDP

Former Kano state governor, Rabiu Kwankwaso.
Former Governor of Kano State, Rabiu Kwankwaso, has reportedly defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

According to Daily Post, Kwankwaso and 10 other Kano State lawmakers dumped the All Progressives Progress (APC) for the opposition camp.
The former governor's action may have been instigated by his ordeal in the APC.
There has been a dispute between Kwankwaso and his successor, Umar Ganduje.
In March 2016, the APC leadership in Kano had accused Kwankwaso of anti-party activities, and initiate a move to suspend him.
The Chairman, PDP caretaker committee, Ahmed Makarfi had recently said three top shots in the APC would soon defect to the party.

The opposition party regained momentum after the Supreme Court sacked Ali Modu Sheriff as the party's chairman, ending several months of leadership tussle that nearly sank the PDP.
