Former Kano State Governor, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso on Tuesday resigned his membership of the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ahead of the 2023 general election.

Kwankwaso resigned his membership from the PDP in a letter he personally signed dated March 29, 2022, and addressed to his Kwankwaso ward Chairman.

Kwankwaso in the letter said he was exiting the party because of some serious and irreconcilable differences.

“It is with deep sense of responsibility that I write to notify you, that as a result of some serious and irreconcilable differences, I have reached the conclusion that my continued stay in the PDP is untenable and therefore effective from today, Tuesday 29th day of March 2022, I have withdrawn my membership form the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP,” Kwankwaso said.

The former Governor and former Kano Central Senatorial district, Kwankwaso was yet to disclose his new party.

Although, unconfirmed news making rounds some weeks back has it that he is to join the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP).

Already, some of his loyalists in Kano have dumped the main opposition PDP for the NNPP earlier in the month as a signal of their principal imminent defection to the party.
