Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso has arrived at the Kano residence of Senator Ibrahim Shekarau, to finalise the agreement of Shekarau’s defection to the new but fast growing New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP).

Shekarau had been expected to officially announce his defection from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) on Saturday but the plan was shelved for an undisclosed reason.

Governor Abdullahi Ganduje had visited Shekarau Friday night to forestall the defection after which both of them were summoned to Abuja, but Shekarau shunned the meeting after he reportedly gathered that it was not the presidency that called the peace parley.

But on Sunday, Kwankwaso, also a former governor of the state, arrived at the Mudunbawa Kano home of Shekarau, alongside other bigwigs of NNPP to conclude on the defection plan said to be scheduled for official announcement on Monday.

Sources in Shekarau’s camp told Daily Trust that the defection is almost a done deal as all the associates of the former governor in all the 44 local government have agreed to move to the NNPP.
