Former Governor of Katsina State, Shehu Shema, has reacted to the alleged plan to dump the Peoples Democratic Party for the All Progressives Congress.
Shema on Monday denied the reported plan to join the opposition party while speaking with journalists in Katsina, after the inauguration of the state Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Caucus and Elders Committees.
There were speculations that he wanted to join APC when he was spotted in a picture with the current Governor, Alhaji Aminu Bello Masari.
The picture was taken during the installation of Col. Abdulaziz Musa Yar’Adua (rtd) as Mutawallen Katsina, which took place at the palace of the Emir of Katsina and has been trending on social media.
However, Shema said: “It was a picture taken at an event at the emir’s palace and that is what it is.”
“It is a picture; it has no political connotation. I have no intention to decamp to any political party.”
