-Political plots thicken ahead of local government elections in Kano state.
-Former governor Kwankwaso has allegedly directed his supporters in the state to join the PDP.
Kwankwaso drums up support for PDP in Kano state.
Ahead of the 2019 general elections as well as the local government election in Kano state, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, has reportedly asked his supporters in the state to dump the All Progressives Congress (APC) and pitch tent with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
According to the Kano state commissioner for special duties, Musa Iliyasu Kwankwaso, who is also a nephew to the former governor, Kwankwaso has directed his supporters to join the PDP ahead of the forthcoming local council election in the state.
In his reaction to stories that Kwankwaso was been pressured to join the Peoples Democratic Party in the state, he said:
“Already, he has given the go-ahead to his supporters to join the PDP in Kano State so that they can contest in the forthcoming local government election in the state. But what I can assure him is that the APC will win all the 44 local governments because of the growing supporters’ base of Governor Ganduje.
“It was because of Kwankwaso that the chairman of the PDP was thrown out of office because they wanted to hand over the party structures to him ahead of his defection.”
“They want to use red caps to cause confusion during President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit next month. We will not allow that because Kano people are for Buhari all the time.”
“I think we should think positive. We are taking the negative side now. It is just like me asking you: ‘If your employers do this or that, would you leave your place of work?’
“We should think positive; it depends on how you put it. We are happy now in the APC, we are comfortable with our leaders in Abuja and they have not done anything wrong,” he said then.
