An associate of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, Alhaji Ibrahim Amin Little, has dumped the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Little, who was a leading governorship aspirant of the All Progressives Party (APP) in Kano State in 2003, was received by a large crowd at the secretariat of the PDP, in Kano, at the weekend.
The exit of the Alhaji Little and his structure represents yet another blow to the APC in the state State, according to pundits.
Speaking to reporters after the reception, Alhaji Little said he turned his back on his former party because it failed to deliver on its promises to Nigerians adding that Nigerians, both in Kano and beyond, were in very bad shape under the charge of the APC.
Alhaji Little, who was a leading crusader for the Buhari presidency, conceded that he bore no regrets for his support for the victory of President Buhari, adding that in the circumstances then, he was the best candidate for Nigeria.
He, however, noted that times and things change, adding that President Buhari was no longer in charge in the light of his health status even as he predicted that the All Progressives Congress as a party held no promise for the future.
He also regretted that the Federal Government had not done enough to compensate the northwest region for the number of votes they secured from the region, adding that the Lagos – Ibadan axis, which contributed far less, had been enjoying a better part of the administration
He assured that he was moving to the PDP to contribute his share in its development, both at the state and federal levels, saying that his eyes were set on steps that would alleviate the sufferings of the ordinary people of Kano State and Nigerians in general.
