Kwankwaso Explains Absence At APC Convention
Former Kano state governor, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, has explained why he was absent at the national convention of the All Progressives Congress (APC) which held in Abuja over the weekend.
In a personally signed statement made available to Naija News explaining his absence, Senator Kwankwaso disclosed he and his supporters stayed away from the convention to avoid a break down of law and order.
His statement reads:
“The All Progressive Congress (APC) group in Kano which I am opportune to lead will like to congratulate and felicitate with the newly elected Chairman H.E Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and his newly elected members of the Executive Council.”
“I wish to inform the leadership of the party and the general public that we had wanted to be part of the National Convention but regrettably all the congresses that we conducted at the wards, Local Government Councils and at the State level were not recognized by the outgoing National Executive Council of the party”
“Therefore, I felt that presenting ourselves at such an important event will not be in the overall interest of the entire convention that is assuming we are allowed access into the convention ground.”
“Because there are high chances that our presence could create embarrassments and a lot of friction similar or even worse than what occurred in the pavilions of delegations from Imo and Delta States during yesterday’s convention. However, as the new EXCO settles to start the efforts of uniting the party we wish you the very best.”
