A former gubernatorial aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kaduna State, Dr Muhammad Sani-Bello, has formally joined the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
DAILY POST had reported that Sani-Bello dumped the PDP on November 12 due to what he described as unending mistrust between him and the state leadership of the party, and its governorship candidate, Alhaji Isa Ashiru.
He had said the mistrust emanated from the refusal of party leaders in the state to put into writing the terms of consensus which led to his stepping down for Ashiru prior to the party’s gubernatorial primaries.
However, Sani-Bello announced his decision to join the APC at a news conference on Saturday in Kaduna.
According to NAN, Bello said he consulted with different political parties before arriving at the decision to join the APC.
He said he had consulted with APC in his Dogarawa Ward in Sabon Gari Local Government Area, as well as major party stakeholders at state and national level before joining it.
The politician said he had met with Gov. Nasiru El-Rufai and extensively discussed on various issues before finally announcing his defection to the ruling party.
He expressed optimism that more PDP aspirants and their supporters would soon join the APC.
