The Minority Leader of the Kano State House of Assembly representing Kura/Garun Malam constituency, Alhaji Abdullahi Muhammad-Chiromawa has defected from Peoples Democratic Party to People’s Redemption Party.
The member announced his defection while briefing newsmen in Kano.
Muhammad-Ciromawa also said he has resigned his position as the Minority Leader of the assembly.
According to him, the decision to defect from PDP to PRP was to join his political Godfather, Alhaji Salihu Sagir-Takai, who had recently dumped the PDP for PRP.
“PDP is no longer politically habitable, that is why I’m leaving the party to better my political career and also to avoid being trapped in a political cross-fire,” he said.
He explained that his decision was due to the gross impunity and power tussle bedevilling the two major parties in the state.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that the former Deputy Governor of state, Prof Hafiz Abubakar who resigned his position and defected to People’s Democratic Party, had also dumped the PDP for PRP.
