“I appreciate the opportunities given to me, which made me serve in various capacities under the PDP,” he wrote.
This serves as a blow to the PDP as it comes 16 days to the February 25 Presidential election.
Governor Aminu Tambuwal is the Director-General of the Presidential Campaign of Atiku Abubakar, the party’s flagbearer in the election.
Although Dan Iya did not make his next political move known, sources say he is on his way to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
