The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that Shinkafi alongside Gov. Bello Matawalle, defected to the APC in June 2021.
“I have no regret for joining the APC as a ruling party in the country under President Muhammadu Buhari.
“Since my defection to APC, I am comfortable with the achievements recorded by the party’s Caretaker and Extraordinary National Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), led by Gov. Mai Mala-Buni.
“Therefore, no retreat and no surrender in our journey in APC with Gov. Bello Matawalle,’’ Shinkafi said.
He said that he was among top stakeholders who encouraged Matawalle to defect to the APC.
Shinkafi said, “I have my strong reason of leaving APGA, the party I have served as a national secretary to join the ruling APC.
“I joined APC because of my belief in the political ideology of Gov. Bello Matawalle and President Muhammadu Buhari.’’
