The political tension between supporters of the Incumbent Governor, Umar Abdullahi Ganduje, and his former boss, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, continues to escalate in Kano State.

The two camps are set to hold parallel political rallies in Kano on January 30.

Already, there is apprehension among residents of the state as a result of the verbal confrontations going on among the supporters of the two political leaders.

Kwankwaso’s media aide, Binta Spikin, said; “Despite the purported rumours by the Ganduje-led faction of the APC, Kwankwaso will come to Kano on January 30 to help his people, especially those who are contesting in the forthcoming local government election in their campaign activities.

"We are very much aware of the rumours going round that our leader will not come to Kano."

The Ganduje’s people are circulating the rumours but I can assure you that this will not stop our leader from coming to Kano on the slated date,” Spikin said.

Kano APC secretary, Ibrahim Zakari Sarina, affirmed that the party’s rally at Kwanar Dangora was scheduled according to the campaign timetable released by the Kano State Independent Electoral Commission (KANSIEC), for the forthcoming local government poll in the state.

“Unfortunately, Senator Kwankwaso did not inform the party about his planned rally which coincides with ours. Had it been he wrote to the party, the party will have shifted its own rally to another day.

"But because he did not inform the party, we based our own activities in line with KANSIEC’s timetable,” he said.
