Former Kano State governor and former minister of education, Mr Ibrahim Shekarau, may be on his way out of his party, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

The former governor is angry with the manner in which the crisis in the Kano PDP is being handled by the party.

Mr Shekarau’s aide Sule Yau told Channels Television on Tuesday that all efforts to prevail on the party to reconsider the manner in which the crisis was handled failed.

According to Mr Yau, his principal is consulting with his constituents on the next line of action and will take a decision later in the day.

The National Working Committee of the PDP had dissolved the party’s executive in Kano last week and constituted a caretaker committee for the state.

But Mr Shekarau is unhappy with the composition of the caretaker committee.

The former governor is now set to make a decision about whether to stay in the PDP or move on and will declare where he is heading next should he decide to leave.

Mr Shekarau was a governor in Kano State under the platform of the ANPP and was part of the merger of the ANPP with other parties to form the APC.

He later dumped the APC for the PDP and became a minister of education under the Jonathan administration
