Kano APC crisis: Ganduje’s faction denies rumours of planned mass defection to PRP
The Kano State Government had denied rumours that state Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje and his faction are planning to defect from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the PRP.
The rumours emerged following a meeting between the Governor’s APC faction in an attempt to appeal the Abuja court ruling on the party’s wards and local Governments congresses held at Africa House, Government House, Kano on Sunday.
An Abuja High Court had sacked the leadership of the APC faction in the state loyal to Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje and declared the executives of former Governor of the state, Ibrahim Shekarau, as duly elected leaders of the party in the state.
Responding to BBC Hausa over the rumours, the State Commissioner for Rural Development, Musa Iliyasu Kwankwaso who is one of the leaders of the Ganduje’s lead APC faction, said the rumours are baseless.
“Maybe they are ones trying to leave APC but we are for APC and we will continue to remain in APC” he noted.
Kwankwaso said a political crisis is not a new thing especially when it comes to the election of new leaders.
“We are still working to resolve the crisis as long as the over faction remain in the party”
” There is a court of appeal and apart of that there is also supreme Court and I am sure the Justice will prevail” Kwankwaso.
