    Nine Kano Lawmakers Defect To NNPP (Full List)


    May 6, 2022

    Nine members of the Kano State House of Assembly have announced their defection to the New Nigeria People Party (NNPP).

    Naija News understands the lawmakers who made their defection public on Friday in a letter sent to the Kno State House of Assembly were all from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

    According to the legislators in a statement by the spokesperson of the Assembly, Uba Abdullahi, they had already sent a letter of notification to the Speaker of the Assembly.

    They gave their reason for defection to be the leadership crisis in the PDP, both at the state and national levels according to a report monitored on Daily Nigerian.

    The defectors are Isyaku Ali Danja (Gezawa Constituency), Umar Musa Gama (Nassarawa Constituency), Aminu Sa’adu Ungogo (Ungogo Constituency), Lawan Hussain Chediyar ‘Yan Gurasa (Dala Constituency) and Tukur Muhammad (Fagge Constituency).

    Others are Mu’azzam El-Yakub (Dawakin Kudu Constituency), Garba Shehu Fammar (Kibiya Constituency), Abubakar Uba Galadima (Bebeji Constituency) and Mudassir Ibrahim Zawaciki (Kumbotso Constituency).

    About a month ago, a former Governor of Kano State, Musa Kwankwaso emerged as the National leader of the New Nigeria Peoples Party after dumping the Peoples Democratic Party.

    In other news, the All Progressives Congress faction of the Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje has been upheld as the authentic faction in the state.

    The Supreme Court ruled against the faction loyal to the former Governor of the state, Ibrahim Shekarau on Friday.

    The five-member panel of justice in its ruling which was read by Justice Inyang Okoro stated that the appeal against the earlier judgements of the Court of Appeal in Abuja lacked merit and is dismissed.
