Shekarau stated this while speaking on Thursday in an interview with Channels Television

It could be recalled on Monday, the senator officially defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from the NNPP — four months after joining the party from the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Speaking on why he dumped NNPP, Shekarau revealed that the party didn’t include his associates on their candidates’ list sent to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), despite the establishment of a committee to ensure a merger with Kwankwaso’s allies.

“That is the least you can call it — betrayal, outright disregard, outright manipulation,” he said.

“Our guiding principle, which is known to all my political associates, is the protection of our image and integrity, and you can’t have your integrity protected if there is not going to be sincerity and if there is not going to be trust and truth.

Asked if he was promised anything by the PDP, the senator said he did not join the party because of personal interests, adding that the promised to be fair to his associates.

“There was not any promise or assurances except the assurances of being fair, sincere, and trustworthy with the associates that we have,” he said.

“That is what we are looking for anywhere we move, Two things are our guiding principles — what kind of people are you interacting with and what kind of interaction are you promoting. Through our interactions with the PDP, we were satisfied.”
