Barely three months that he joined the party, former Kano Governor Senator Ibrahim Shekarau yesterday officially dumped the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP).



Shekarau is the senatorial candidate of the NNPP in the 2023 general election but he moved out of the party because his followers were denied forms to also pursue their political ambitions.

“I am done with NNPP,” he told a crowd of supporters at the Kano Foundation office along BUK road on Monday.
