Kwankwaso’s 2019 Presidential ambition also responsible for rift –Sen Jibrin
hy is the feud between Kwankwaso and Ganduje still lingering was in addition to other previous offences against Doguwa. I think a vote of no confidence was passed on him and he was removed from the position. A new chairman emerged but the former governor rejected the change in leadership and stood his ground. Up till now, the issue has not been addressed and this is the one of the major causes of the feud.
The second issue is the fact that Ganduje is an ardent supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari and he has made it very clear that he will always support and stand by the President including in 2019. He has made this clear to all that matters. And from what you can see, Kwankwaso’s actions including his trips to states have shown that he will contest for presidency in 2019. Observers see this as another area of disagreement between Kwankwaso and Ganduje.
If there is any effort to resolve these issues, there will be peace. But so long as there is objection to what the party has done, by the Kwankwaso’s camp, the problem will continue.
I don’t know anything about that. I wont want to delve into speculations. I don’t think there was any problem before then. The two issues are the main reasons.
How can it be resolved?
The party has taken a position and the stakeholders have aligned themselves to it but the Kwankwasiyya people are saying no to it. This is the problem.
What are you the stakeholders doing to address the feud ?
Nothing we can do other than to ask all the parties to abide by the position of the party. The position of the party is that of the majority. So, we should stand by it.
It is widely believed that the feud will negatively affect the fortune of APC in Kano come 2019?
