Former senator from Borno state Muhammed Abba-Aji has defected from the ruling All Progressives Congress to the Peoples Democratic Party.
Concise News learned that Abba-Aji intends to vie for the Borno Central senatorial seat.
He had initially declared his intent to run for the position of governor.
Abba-Aji told newsmen that he left the APC because of injustice meted on him and other governorship aspirants by the leadership of the party.
But the APC has since denied the allegations, insisting it has given every aspirant equal chance to pursue their ambitions.
“There was a pronouncement which started at the APC national congress; it was unanimous that primary elections of the party will be conducted through direct primaries; all card carrying members will come together and determine who the candidate for a particular office will be,” he said.
