No honour: Kano PDP chairman defects to APC after Supreme Court judgement

In a week which has been characterized by Supreme Court rulings and a new governor’s swearing in, the political drama in the country has taken another twist ast he Kano State Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Rabiu Sulaiman-Bichi, has decamped to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

It was a defection which was only waiting for the Supreme Court ruling to happen. It comes two days after the Supreme Court affirmed Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of the APC as the duly elected governor of Kano State.

The former PDP chairman was one of the henchmen of former governor and leader of the opposition in the state, Rabiu Kwankwaso. He had worked with the former governor in different capacities.

During the first tenure of Mr Kwankwaso as Kano governor, 1999-2003, Mr Sulaiman-Bichi was the managing director of Kano State Urban Planning and Development Board (KNUPDA) and also the commissioner for land matters.

He was also the secretary to the Kano State Government during the second tenure of Mr Kwankwaso (2011- 2015) and in the early part of Mr Ganduje’s tenure before he voluntarily resigned due to the Kwankwaso-Ganduje feud. Mr Bichi denies that the Supreme Court ruling played a part in his defection and that it was an issue of principle with him. Follow us on Twitter and on Facebook
