- The New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) has lost its governorship candidate in Bauchi state, Haliru Dauda Jika, to the All Progressives Congress (APC)
- Jika returned to the ruling APC and was received by the party's national chairman, Abdullahi Ganduje in Abuja
- Ganduje described Jika's decision to return to the APC with his group as a step in the right direction
Ganduje said Jika must have realised that the ‘Kwankwasiyya backed’ NNPP was “deceitful and exploitative.”
According to the Guardian, while receiving Jika and his group into the APC, Ganduje removed the red cap of the Kwankwasiyya group and replaced it with President Bola Tinubu’s signature cap bearing the unbroken chain insignia.
