A top campaigner of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential aspirant, Bola Tinubu, Abdulmumin Jibrin, has dumped the ruling party to the New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP.
Last weekend, Mr Jibrin announced the decision to leave the APC on his verified handle, saying he would reveal the next party to join within 24 hours.
“I have done my best for APC. It’s time to move on. I will announce my new political party within the next 24 hours insha Allah. I will make a formal statement in due course. Hon Abdulmumin Jibrin,” he tweeted.
He however did not reveal the decision within the time he promised.
It was gathered that the former member of the House of Representatives joined NNPP which is led by former Kano State governor, Rabiu Kwankwaso, after a meeting with the party leaders in Kano and Abuja.
Confirming the development, Jibrin, on Friday night posted a video of his formal defection -captioned: ‘NNPP – NEW NIGERIA – SABUWAR NIGERIA! #EyeOnTheBall’ and showing him and members of the NNPP hoisting a basket of fruits, the party’s logo, in acceptance of his entry.
