Former Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in Kano state, Rabi’u Sulaiman Bichi has dumped the party and may be heading to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Bichi, who was a member of the  Kwankwasiyya Movement was sacked as the chairman of the party last week.

Bichi, a former Secretary to the State Government during Kwankwaso’s tenure, according to a source said he is likely to announce his defection from the major opposition party in the state and Kwankwasiyya today.

“My Oga (Dr Bichi) would join Governor Ganduje today at Kano State Government House for the formal declaration of his decamping to APC from the PDP,” Daily Trust quoted him as saying.
