Tension Heightens In Kano As Kwankwaso, Ganduje Camps Plan Rally For Same Day
The political atmosphere in Kano is becoming heated with the two rival political camps of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) fixing rallies for the same area on the same day.
One of the camps is that of ex-governor Musa Kwankwaso, called Kwankwasiyya, while the other is that of the incumbent governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, called Gandujiyya.
Ganduje served as deputy governor to Kwankwaso.
A political feud between them, however, seems unresolvable, despite the efforts of the party and President Muhammadu Buhari.
Kwankwaso’s supporters had earlier fixed January 30 for a massive rally in the state.
But the governor’s faction on Sunday released a programme of events from January 27 to February 6, including one in Tamburawa on January 30.
Tamburawa is one of the strongholds of Kwankwaso.
Already, some residents of Kano have expressed concern that the rival rallies could lead to violence in the state.
At least six people were injured when supporters of both camps clashed last week in the state.
