Don’t use Buhari’s name to cover your weakness, Kwankwaso tells Ganduje

Former governor of Kano State, Rabiu Kwankwaso has said that the present governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, is using the name of President Muhammadu Buhari to cover up his weaknesses.
Kwankwaso was reacting to a threat by the state chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, to suspend him for staging what it said was a “violent rally”.
But according signed Kwankwaso’s aide, Yunusa Dangwani, Kwankwaso had given his successor “space and time to settle down and consolidate on Sen. Kwankwaso’s successful programmes and projects that resulted into 100% APC’s success in the 2014 local government and 2015 general elections respectively”.
He therefore called on Ganduje to desist from dragging the name of President Muhammadu Buhari to cover for his administration’s “obvious weaknesses”, and “strive to concentrate on facing the enormous challenges of governance such that, perhaps, he may also be revered and respected by the good people of Kano State”.
The statement also explained, that his visit to the state to commensurate with Governor Ganduje on the death of his mother was not meant to destabilise the state, or government.
The statement added that Mr. Kwankwaso also “deliberately gave short notice for the condolence visit, but was pleasantly surprised by the turnout of the good people of Kano who came to receive him at the Malam Aminu Kano Airport and escorted him to Ganduje village”.
He added, that by the time Mr. Kwankwaso’s convoy arrived Ganduje town, they were surprised “that some local people brandished local weapons, not minding the somber occasion. It is unfortunate that they could not be chided, thus we left them with their weapons at Ganduje”.
“It is therefore appalling and rather unfortunate that the good gesture of Sen. Kwankwaso has been mischievously interpreted wrongly.
“It is also disheartening that few hours after the death of our state Deputy Chairman Alhaji Isa Ali Danmaraya the government was busy coercing and misleading some party leadership into addressing a press conference that will only culminate in splitting the APC in Kano,” the statement said.
