APC Moves To Stop Kwankwaso’s Defection
Worried by the plans of former Governor of Kano State, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso and his huge supporters to leave the All Progressives Congress (APC), the leadership of the party has held different meetings with Kwankwaso in the last few days to persuade him to drop the idea of leaving the party,
Kwankwaso and his successor, Abdullahi Ganduje have been having a running battle over the control of the party in the state.
The different meetings with Kwankwaso is coming as the political group of the former governor is expected to meet on Sunday to review its planned move.
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo had on Monday met with the former governor.
Since Osinbajo's meeting, several other leaders of the party have also met with Kwankwaso.
The party leaders have also met with Ganduje to thread softly in the lingering crisis.
The Political Adviser to the President, Senator Babafemi Ojudu, confirmed the presidency’s meeting with Kwankwaso and Governor Ganduje in a post on his Facebook account.
“Last night Vice President Yemi Osinbajo led a team of myself, Hon Adamu Farouk to engage Governor Ganduje of Kano on the need for unity and peace in our party in Kano State”, the presidential adviser on politics stated.
“We made substantial progress, just as we did earlier in the week when we met former Governor Kwakwanso. Insha Allah all will be well very soon and we shall once again have one big APC family in the ancient and progressive city.”
The crisis in Kano APC became pronounced recently when the state Police Commissioner, Rabiu Yusuf, cautioned Kwankwaso from going to his home town for political activities scheduled for last Tuesday.
The tension generated by the police advice led to the postponement of the planned visit by Kwankwaso.
