Senate Leader Abdullahi defects to PDP

Senate Leader Yahaya Abdullahi has allegedly dumped the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and is on his way to join the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kebbi State.

Abdullahi’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Muhammad Jamil Gulma, reportedly confirmed the development yesterday in a statement.

“Senate Leader Yahaya Abdullahi will on Wednesday (today) by 9 a.m leave Abuja for Kebbi and proceed to Kamba Local Government Area to formally declare for PDP and to possibly indicate his interest to contest his present seat,” the statement said.

He has since rejected the outcome of the exercise.

It was learnt that his defection might not be unconnected with the governorship primary election.
