Former Minister of Special Duties under President Goodluck Jonathan, Hon. Kabiru Tanimu Turaki has said that contrary to news making the rounds that he has defected to the Social Democratic Party SDP, He is and will remain a very solid Member of the People Democratic Party PDP.
Speaking to BEN Television in a Brief Telephone Interview on Monday, Hon Turaki said many People mistook him for the former Jigawa state Governor Saminu Turaki.
In his words,” I am still very much a card carrying member of the PDP, he Saminu is a former governor, I have never been a governor, I am a minister he has never been a minister, I am from Kebbi State, he is from Jigawa state, I am a Lawyer he is not a lawyer so you can see we are very different, PDP is in my Blood and I will die a member of the PDP” he said
He therefore used the medium to thank his friends and loved ones who have called to confirm the news of his purported defection over the weekend assuring them that he is and always will be committed to the People’s Democratic Party PDP and Nigeria as a country.
