Three-time governorship candidate in Kano State, Salihu Sagir Takai, on Monday, once again left the party under which he contested to be governor in 2019, the Peoples’ Redemption Party (PRP).
Takai left PRP to join the government at the helm of affairs in the state, in a move that has been interpreted to mean that he was gearing up to contest for the governorship position under the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2023.
Takai’s spokesman, Abdullahi Musa Huguma’ was quoted to have said his principal had due consultations with his supporters before crossing over to APC.
Takai has so far contested under three different parties.
His first shot at the governorship position was in 2011 under All Nigeria Peoples’ Party (ANPP). He tried again in 2015 under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and in 2019 under the PRP.
