Kano: Sharada defects to ADP, picks governorship ticket

Member representing Kano Municipal in the House of Representatives, Shaaban Sharada, has defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to Action Democratic Party (ADP).

An associate of the lawmaker, Rabiu Shamma, confirmed the development to Daily Trust, saying he has picked Rabiu Bako as his running mate.

It is believed that Sharada defected to ADP to give the APC a challenge in the 2023 elections.

Recall that he has been at loggerheads with Kano state governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, in recent times.

As a politician, he crossed several political hurdles and opposition within the APC to win the House of Reps ticket of the ruling party in 2019 and later won in the general election.

While in APC, Sharada, who is the chairman of House Committee on National Security and Intelligence, contested the gubernatorial ticket but lost to the incumbent deputy governor, Nasiru Gawuna.

Sha’aban was a member of the popular G-7, a faction of the APC in Kano that was led by Senator Ibrahim Shekarau.
