Governor Kwankwaso set to dump PDP for APC

KwankwasoIndication has emerged that Kano state Governor, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso and one of the G7 Governor is set to dump the People’s Democratic Party, PDP for the newly formed opposition party, APC.
A reliable source from the party said that at the end of the ongoing consultation with some people the governor considers important to his political career, he will join the Buhari train of the APC. The source says final decision will be taken any moment from next month.
Meanwhile, the Kano state PDP elders committee met yesterday, condemning the national leadership of the PDP, and accusing Alhaji Bamanga Tukur for hijacking the party, thereby leading to its present sorry state.
The chairman of the Kano PDP elders, Alhaji Datti Wudilawa said, “we, the elders of the party and the entire PDP family in the state, with one voice, are saying ‘No’ to the breach of PDP constitution wherein mercenaries have been put in place to discipline our members. We believe in the rule of law and the political structure of Nigeria and that of PDP, which are based on the rule of law. But we are saying ‘No’ to politics of divide and rule. Our loyalty and that of our governor is to the New PDP.”
Passing a vote-of-no-confidence on Tukur’s leadership, they added, “We have noted with grave concern the way and manner the party is being run by the National Working Committee (NWC) under the leadership of Tukur. Their actions in recent past are undemocratic, autocratic, selfish and military-like. The constitution of the party, sacred as it is supposed to be, was thrown to the dogs and actions were/are taken on the whims and caprices of the leadership and his principal.”
But another reliable source informed us that some big wig within the APC in Kano, led by the former Governor, Malam Ibrahim Shekarau are frustrating the move by Kwankwaso to join the party because of fear of domination by his group.
