Afounding member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kano State and former gubernatorial aspirant, Builder Abdulkadir Yusuf Gude, has listed how his group would help Governor Abdullahi Ganduje to deliver the five million votes he promised to President Muhammadu Buhari.
Builder Gude, who defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) with a former Governor of the state, Malam Ibrahim Shekarau, told Daily Trust Saturday in Abuja that their group will ensure the delivery of the promise through the Kanawa for Buhari (KFB).
According to him, KFB presently has a membership of over 500,000 in the state.
Crisis hits CAN, dissolves elders forum Abbas Jimoh The leadership crisis rocking the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) took a new dimension as the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the association dissolved the National Christian Elders Forum (NCEF) due to irreconcilable differences with its activities.
This is contained in the communiqué issued yesterday in Abuja, of CAN NEC meeting held Tuesday in Abuja and jointly signed by CAN acting General Secretary, Barrister Daramola Joseph Bade and Director, National Issues, Bishop S.T.V. Adegbite.
The meeting, the communiqué said, also applauded the CAN President for the unprecedented achievements recorded under his watch and passed a vote of confidence on him.
The NEC said the dissolved NCEF was using the social media and a section of the traditional media to attack its leadership especially the President, Dr Samson Ayokunle, using unprintable words to label him due to his refusal to take directive from its members.
The NEC, in a letter with reference number: CAN/Ag.GS/ OGMAILS/205 and dated November 23, 2018, also informed the NCEF Chairman, Prof. Solomon Asemota (SAN) of the development.
The CAN NEC also dismisses the media publication of the immediate past National Youth CAN Chairman, Mr. Daniel David Kadzai, who alleged that the CAN President defrauded CAN of “over N2.8bn”.
It said, “CAN regrets that a man who had served in the past, and was tolerated in spite of his numerous incompetent leadership skills, could not only be malicious, but impersonate himself as Chairman of the Congress of Northern Nigerian Christians (CNNC). Although he has apologized for his falsehood by the said publication and has verbally retracted his claims, and the CNNC has equally denied him of being their Chairman, it is important to set the record straight.”
