Kano APC chairman, Sec. suspended over role in Kwankwaso/Ganduje faceoff

The Kano State House of Assembly has ordered the immediate removal of all Kwankwasiyya inscriptions on public buildings in Kano Metropolis and all the local government areas of the state.

The order was handed down on Wednesday after all the members of the House unanimously adopted a motion moved by Hon. Baffa Dan-Agundi representing Kano Municipal Constituency.

The order by the assembly is the latest in the series of power play between incumbent governor, Abdulahi Ganduje and his former boss, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso.

Kwankwasiyya is the political movement of former Governor Kwankwaso and efforts have been made lately to clip the popularity of the group, including the ban of mass wedding by the movement and the sealing of the residence and guest house of the former governor in Kano.

Ganduje was the deputy to Kwankwaso between 2011 and 2015.

The House, while adopting the motion, also ordered all the 44 local governments in the state to comply with the removal order within a month, adding that the Kwankwasiyya inscriptions be replaced with the names of prominent indigenes of the state.
