The Spokesperson of the former Governor of Kano State, Rabiu Kwankwaso, Binta Spikin, has on Thursday, defected to the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Mrs. Spikin announced her defection from the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
The development came a day after the State Chairman of the party, Rabiu Sulaiman-Bichi, also quit the PDP for the ruling APC.
Mrs. Spikin said that her political mentor, Mr. Sulaiman-Bichi, influenced her decision to abandon the party and Rabiu Kwankwaso.
Recall, that Sulaiman-Bichi and some PDP Chieftains in Kano, defected to the APC, following the affirmation of the election of Governor Abdullahi Ganduje by the Supreme Court.
Mrs. Spikin, a Woman Activist and former President of Mass Communication Student Association, MACOSA, in Bayero University, Kano, said that she parted company with Mr. Kwankwaso, immediately after the 2019 general elections, but only officially announced her defection on Wednesday.
Other PDP bigwigs who defected to the APC include Aisha Kaita, a Zonal Woman Leader of PDP, in Kano; Muhammad Tarauni, a former Member of the State House of Assembly; and Idris Bala, a popular Kwankwasiyya Promoter.
