The Senate leader, Yahaya Abdullahi, has defected from the ruling All Progressive Congress APC to the opposition of Peoples Democratic Party PDP in Kebbi State.

Abdullahi Special Adviser on Media and Publicity Muhammad Jamil Gulma confirmed the defection on Tuesday said, the “Senate Leader Dr Yahaya Abdullahi will on Wednesday by 9am leave Abuja for Kebbi and proceed to Kamba local government to formally declare for PDP and to possibly indicate his interest to contest his present seat.”

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

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