While decamping to PDP in Birnin Kebbi, Aliero told delegates who had assembled at the event centre, Birnin Kebbi, to elect the party’s senatorial candidate for the district, that he has returned to the party which he left in 2015 due to what he described as an injustice to his supporters in APC.

According to him, “I have come back to PDP which we left in 2015. I have been in PDP since 2007 but we left in 2015 and PDP couldn’t form the in 2015. And I went to APC, but today, I come back. I left APC because of injustice, lack of projects for poor men by APC and other injustice to many of my supporters.
