Muhammad Sani-Bello, a former gubernatorial aspirant under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kaduna State, on Thursday, dumped the party. Bello made this known at a press briefing in Kaduna.
He said he left the party because of unending mistrust between him and the state leadership of the PDP, as well as its governorship candidate, Isa Ashiru.
According to him, “Based on consultations with my supporters and other stakeholders, I have decided that I, Dr Muhammad Sani-Bello, ceases to be a member of the PDP.”
He said the mistrust was as a result of the refusal of the party leaders in the state to put the term of consensus, which led to his stepping down for Ashiru into writing prior to the party’s gubernatorial primaries.
Bello said he was not comfortable working with Ashiru, whose academic credentials were allegedly under question.
“Based on my findings, the documentation of the candidate contains certain flaws which remained unexplained.”
The former gubernatorial aspirant stated that all efforts made by him and other concerned party members for the state PDP leadership to address areas of friction were rebuffed.
Though he did not disclose his new party, he promised to do that in due time after consultation with his supporters and other stakeholder.
