Prominent Islamic scholar and former chairman of the Kano Council of Ulama, Sheikh Ibrahim Khalil has dumped the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

The cleric’s resignation from the party comes amid a political battle between Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje and Senator Ibrahim Shekarau, his predecessor.

Khalil told the BBC: “Well, as an APC member and one of the elders and one of the caucus, I want to make sure I leave the APC,”

“Everything in life has a reason. There are three reasons: either the educated and the intelligent know, or everyone knows, or the person himself knows the reason.”

He said his decision to resign from the party has no connection to his alleged sacked as Chairman of the Ulama council.

“If that was the case, I would have stepped down. It is not the reason, because just as I did not explain my separation from the government, I do not have to waste time explaining it.

“I did not give up politics and I did not say I would not join the party. I did not join the ANPP myself, I was registered by my supporters. So now I will join the party I want for myself,”
