Shekarau announced his defection after a closed-door meeting with the national chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole, Governor Abdullahi Ganduje and other top party officials.
Shekarau while announcing his defection said he believes that given by the current state of the political situation in Nigeria, it is important he moves to the APC.

As at the time of filing this report, the PDP is yet to react to the defection of the former governor to the APC.
