Former Special adviser Media and Communications to Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, Mr Salihu Tanko Yakasai has announced his defection from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Alhaji Salihu Tanko Yakasai stated this while addressing newsmen in Kano at the press center on Monday morning.
Yakasai said he regretted the performance of the APC-led government which they laboured to attain to power in 2015 and 2019. “By 2019 we reelected the APC again to manage the affairs of the country with the hope that its first term of four years was not enough to clear the mess it inherited from the defeated PDP Administration.
Regretfully ,the trust and confidence we reposed in the APC (the government as well as the party) in two occasions (first and second term)was betrayed if anything,things became worse in the second term.The benefit of the doubt we gave the party in the first term vanished as we moved deeper into the second term’
The former Governors Adviser added that he resolved to exit the APC and his membership of the party ceases from the 21st March 2022.
Malam Salihu who was sacked by Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje in February 2021 said he thanked Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje for giving him the opportunity to serve Kano state for five years as Director General Media and communications and later as Adviser in media.
