A chieftain of the New Nigeria People’s Party, NNPP, Buba Galadima, has said the All Progressives Congress, APC, National Chairman, Abdullahi Ganduje, should kneel and beg the 2023 NNPP presidential candidate, Rabiu Kwankwaso.
Galadima said Kwankwaso was responsible for Ganduje’s victory as governor of Kano State in 2015, adding that he funded the election without the latter’s financial contribution.
Speaking on Arise Television on Monday, the NNPP chieftain stressed that Ganduje can’t be an irritant because Kano is a volatile state.
According to Galadima: “He should not tamper with how the government of Kano is run by instigating people to do what is not correct. In Kano, you can never have a one-party state.
“Kano is a volatile state, so we can’t have two gladiators fighting on the streets of Kano; this is why Tinubu is asking Ganduje if Kwankwaso is not your boss? ‘I knew you in 1999, and you were a deputy governor and Kwankwaso was your leader,’ so Mr President is wise to say that.
“Ganduje can’t be an irritant in the politics of Kano; what he does is try to get the people of Kano killed and deny them from getting the dividends of democracy. This is what Tinubu does not want to see.
It’s Ganduje that will reconcile with Kwankwaso. Kwankwaso never quarrelled or fought with him; he allowed Ganduje to run the state the way he deemed fit. In 2015, he won the election 100 percent without spending one kobo; the victory of all senators, all local government chairmen then were all Kwankwaso’s handwork.
“After four years, Kano people rejected Ganduje’s style and attempted to knock the heads of people to fight because that is his stock in trade, so it’s he who should go to Kwankaso to kneel and beg for forgiveness.”
