Abdulmumin Jibrin, Director-General of Tinubu Support Groups Management Council, has abandoned the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Jibrin, a former representative from the district of Kiru/Bebeji in the state of Kano, announced his choice through his verified Facebook account.
Even though the incumbent is also affiliated with the APC, it was anticipated that he would run for re-election in his federal district.
Jibrin stated that he will launch his next political party shortly.
“I have given my everything to APC. It is time to proceed. Insha’Allah, I will declare my new political party within the next twenty-four hours. I will issue a formal statement at the appropriate time. “Honorable Abdulmumin Jibrin,” he wrote.
Jibrin lost his bid to return to the green chamber in a rerun election on January 25, 2020, which he lost to Aliyu Detti Yako, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, after he was allegedly boycotted by party officials in the state.
His problem with the Kano APC leadership began in 2019 when he was suspended from the APC by the Bebeji Local Council chapter in Kano State. Since then, he has struggled for recognition within the party’s structure in his home State, despite his popularity in the party’s national structure and his efforts to ensure the emergence of Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu as the next presidential candidate.
