Embattled Kano State Deputy Governor, Prof Hafiz Abubakar, on Thursday, dismissed as false rumours news making the rounds that he had defected from the All Progressives Congress to the Peoples Democratic Party.

While dismissing the speculation, Abubakar said he was still a member of the APC.

He attributed the false claim that he had crossed to the PDP as the handiwork of some miscreants, urging his supporters to disregard it.

“I have not resigned. I am still the Deputy Governor of Kano State and a member of the APC,’’ Abubakar said on Thursday.

The deputy governor, who doubles as the Kano State Commissioner for Education, said he was in Abuja on Thursday to attend the National Council of Education meeting.

Abubakar’s rumoured defection had gone viral on the social media, following a tweet on a PDP Twitter handle welcoming him, alongside the Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Masari Tambuwal, into the opposition party.
