His decision to leave the party may be connnected to an alleged failed bid to return to the House of Representatives in 2023 and run the the Speaker of the Green chamber.

Moneycentral gathered from anonymous sources that Jibrin’s ambition failed to get the endorsement of his State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, who allegedly did not commit to giving him the ticket to vie for the Reps seat in next year’s election.

The ex-lawmaker’s political woes in his state started when the Kano chapter of the APC drew a battle line with him for not showing support for the reelection bid of the governor in 2019.
