Shekarau Met Tinubu Without Our Permission – Kano APC Faction

A faction of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kano State loyal to Senator Ibrahim Shekarau has faulted the meeting between the former governor and the national leader of the party, Bola Tinubu.

Naija News had reported that Shekarau, on Sunday, met with Tinubu at his Ikoyi residence in Lagos over the crisis rocking the party in the Northern state.

But in an interview with Daily Trust, a member of the Shekarau’s camp who craved anonymity, said the former governor didn’t seek the permission of the group before meeting with the APC leader.

The APC chieftain added that Shekarau has not briefed the members on the outcome of his meeting with Tinubu since returning to Kano.


The source said: “As far as we are concerned, the meeting was personal and not for our group because he went there without our permission and since he returned, nobody has been briefed.

“What I can tell you is that nobody can hand over Kano to anyone come 2023. The state is bigger than anybody.”

He stated that the feud with Governor Ganduje’s camp was to liberate the party from the shackles of the governor and open it to all members.


The crisis rocking the APC in Kano was to solely free the party and open it up to all in the state. As it is now, many people are being side-lined. They are practicing politics of exclusivity and it is not good for our democracy,” he said.
