Ex-Gov Ramalan Yero quits PDP



The former Kaduna State Governor, Ramalan Yero, has resigned from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Yero served as Kaduna State governor from 2012-2015.

He was the deputy governor during the late Patrick Yakowa’s administration and took over as governor when the latter died in a helicopter crash in 2012.

Yero lost his re-election bid to former Governor Nasir El-Rufai in 2015.

He announced his resignation from the PDP in a letter addressed to the party’s leadership in the state on Saturday.
