The caretaker committee Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Kano state.
Rabiu Sulaiman Bichi has defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Bichi is a very close ally of former governor Rabiu Kwankwaso. He was also a former Secretary to the Kano State Government.
The reason for his defection is not yet known at the time of filing this report. Recall that recently, the Supreme Court just delivered a judgment, not in favor of the PDP concerning the Kano governorship election appeal.
According to reports, hundreds of Kwankwaso loyalists also joined Bichi in decamping to the ruling APC.
iDONSABI, however, gathered that Bichci had decided to leave the party long before the judgment of the Supreme Court that declared Abdullahi Ganduje, as the duly elected governor of the state.
“The decision of Rabiu Sulaiman Bichi was not related to the outcome of the Supreme Court judgment. It was purely based on principles and personal convictions.
“In the affairs of Kwankwasiyya, Rabiu Bichi has been lately rendered irrelevant, ostracised, and sidelined from the decision-making of the Kwankwasiyya movement. Despite his commitment to the cause, he was looked down upon as a saboteur.” a close political associate said on the condition of anonymity.
