2019: Kwankwaso Allegedly Set To Dump APC For PDP
The political transfer window is very much open and more transfers are expected to happen before the 2019 general elections.
After losing former Vice President Atiku Abubakar to the PDP, the All Progressives Congress (APC) might be losing another bigwig soon.
A former Governor of Kano State, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, is expected to decamp from the APC to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in a move expected to upend the political equation in the state.
He is also expected to join the presidential race for 2019.
Kwankwaso is the leader of the Kwankwasiyya Movement, a powerful political group with thousands of followers across the state, especially in key government positions.
According to reports, Kwankwaso’s imminent move is being fuelled by his frosty relationship with the national APC leadership and his successor, Dr Umar Ganduje, who was also his deputy.
The former Defence Minister and some other party bigwigs have reportedly been sidelined by the party, which prompted a move by Vice President Atiku Abubakar back to the PDP.
Kwankwaso is expected to lead a huge contingent of members of APC in Kano back to the PDP and the opposition party leaders in the state are reportedly eagerly awaiting their arrival.
