A former Governor of Katsina State, Ibrahim Shehu Shema, has denied he is set to defect to the All Progressives Party (APC).
Shema stated this while speaking with journalists in Katsina, after the inauguration of the state Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Caucus and Elders Committees.
The speculation began after he took a picture with the current Governor, Alhaji Aminu Bello Masari.
The picture was taken during the installation of Col. Abdulaziz Musa Yar’Adua (rtd) as Mutawallen Katsina, which took place at the palace of the Emir of Katsina and has been trending on social media.
However, Shema said: “It was a picture taken at an event at the emir’s palace and that is what it is.
“It is a picture; it has no political connotation. I have no intention to decamp to any political party.
