No Defection In Kano Assembly-Speaker


The Speaker of Kano State House of Assembly, Alhaji Yusuf Abdullahi Ata, has debunked reports being circulated via social media claiming mass defection of members of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, in the House of Assembly to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

The fake news emerged following the defection of a notable member of the party from the state in the Senate, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, on Tuesday.

“To the best of my knowledge, no single member of Kano State House of Assembly decamped to PDP. I have never heard this and I don’t think our members can do that,” he said, according to a report by Daily Trust.

A member of the Kano Assembly representing Municipal Local Government Area, Alhaji Baffa Babba Danagundi, also dispelled the rumour of defection of some APC members to PDP.

“Even the six members of Kwankwasiyya group in the house have not announced their defection to PDP not to talk of APC members that are loyal to Ganduje. We are loyal to Ganduje and we will remain loyal to him,” he said.
