Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano State has visited the senator representing Kano central senatorial district, Ibrahim Shekarau.

Daily Trust learnt that the former governor (Shekarau) had concluded plans to announce his defection to the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) on Saturday as the crisis within the Kano All Progressives Congress (APC) reached a tipping point.

Both Shekarau and the governors had a closed door meeting at Shekarau’s Kano home late Friday.

While the outcome of their meeting was not known yet, sources close to the former governor said Ganduje came to forestall the planned defection of Shekarau to NNPP, which is led by another former governor of the state, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso.

“He just left. They went inside and discussed, but nobody can tell what they really talked about,” the source added.

Daily Trust gathered that Kwankwaso arrived in Kano on Friday as part of plans to receive Shekarau into the NNPP fold.
