BREAKING: Yahaya Abdullahi, Senate Leader, has Withdraw from APC.



NaijaNews reports that Senator Yahaya Abdullahi, the Senate leader in Kebbi State, has defected from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).


“Senate Leader Dr Yahaya Abdullahi will leave Abuja on Wednesday by 9 a.m. for Kebbi and proceed to Kamba local government to formally declare for PDP and possibly indicate his interest to contest his current seat,” said his special adviser on media and publicity Muhammad Jamil Gulma, who confirmed the defection.

Dr Yahaya who participated in the APC’s Kebbi governorship primaries was reported to have scored Zero votes, an outcome which he had since rejected and described as shambolic and a child’s play.

Pundits say his defection may not be unconnected with the governorship primaries and several failed truces by the national leadership of the ruling APC.
