However, a source close to the former PDP chairman said he took the decision to leave the party long before the judgement of the Supreme Court, declaring , as the duly elected governor of the state.

“The decision of Rabiu Sulaiman Bichi was not related to the outcome of the Supreme Court judgement. It was purely based on principles and personal conviction,” a close political associate who preferred begged for anonymity said.

“In the affairs of Kwankwasiyya, Rabiu Bichi has been lately rendered irrelevant, ostracised and sidelined from the decision-making of the Kwankwasiyya movement. Despite his commitment to the cause, he was looked down upon as a saboteur.”
