Kwankwaso Is Not Welcome In APC, Says Shekarau
Former Kano state governor and leader of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Kano state, Mallam Ibrahim Shekarau has said that the party will not welcome Kano state Governor Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso into its fold.
Shekarau’s outburst is coming on the heels of the visit to Kano and Jigawa State by leaders of the APC led by interim national chairman, Chief Bisi Akande, General Muhammadu Buhari, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and including Governors Babatunde Fashola of Lagos, Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti and Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, in a bid to have Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso and Sule Lamido join the APC.
Shekarau who took over from Kwankwanso and handed over to him told newsmen that they would not welcome the governor into the party because he is a man with a rich history of violence against political contemporaries.
Addressing newsmen on the visit Shekarau vowed that the state APC would “not welcome such a personality into our party”
Shekarau who was a key player in the emergence of the new party said: “Rabiu Musa Kwankwanso is a man with a rich history of violence, he is not a man of peace, he did not live in peace with late Abubakar Rimi, he had a running battle with Aminu Wali, and he failed to live in peace with the party that brought him to power. How then can we be looking up to that personality to cross over to our party”.
Shekarau who spoke through his media manager, Alhaji Sule Yau Sule further said:
“we got the information about their visit to Kano yesterday (Thursday) and I do know that they have equally scheduled a meeting with Sardauna and his group tonight we would bear our mind because our party is a party of discipline.”
