Kano Labour Party (LP) governorship candidate, Bashir Ishaq Bashir, has resigned from the party.
He declared his unalloyed loyalty and support to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Bashir, at the weekend, withdrew support from Peter Obi who is the LP presidential candidate and declared support for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the APC.
He also explained why he led other chieftains to boycott the LP presidential rally at the Kano Pillars stadium, Sabon Gari area of Kano on January 22.
He said: “We shall return to the fold of the All Progressives Congress, and I wish to inform you that we have just finished our Steering Committee meeting where the feedback from our constituencies was deliberated upon.
“The following decisions were made: That as a coalition of Labour Party (LP) Gubernatorial, Senatorial and House of Representatives, House of Assembly Candidates, Chairman and Members of the Presidential Campaign Council, Members of the Gubernatorial Campaign Council, and Zonal and State Coordinators we have decided to endorse the candidature of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
“We have also resolved to leverage our existing political structures to work on the mass mobilisation of voters and swinging of votes to ensure his (Tinubu’s) emergence as the president of the federal republic of Nigeria in the 2023 presidential election.
“We shall be known as Game Changers for Asiwaju/Shettima 2023. Our slogan is “Sabon Lale”…Swinging the Votes. We shall return to the fold of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Party.”
