Kano YPP guber candidate defects to ADP

Yakubu Muhammad, the Young Progressives Party (YPP) governorship candidate in Kano, has defected to the Action Democratic Party (ADP).

This is contained in a statement by the spokesperson for ADP governorship campaign council, Abbas Yusha’u in Kano.

Mr Yusha’u said Mr Muhammad announced his defection when he visited Sha’aban Sharada (ADP- Municipal federal constituency) who doubled as the ADP governorship candidate in his office.

Mr Muhammad said he defected to the party with his running mate and 24 out of the 27 state executives of the party among others.

“One of the reasons for my defection is to support Sharada’s ambition and this is out of patriotism and the need to rescue Kano State from maladministration,” he stated. “We are aware of how the old politicians are retarding the progress of Kano in critical sectors such as education, the plight of pensioners, health, decayed infrastructure, the economic predicament, and encroachment on public properties.”

Responding, Mr Sharada thanked the former YPP governorship candidate for his support.

“As there is no place to call our own except Kano, I urge fellow candidates to do away with politics of godfathers and inheritance,” said Mr Sharada. “Our doors are open to every patriotic Kano citizen to join our 2023 Kano project, like the YPP candidate.”
