We’ll Move to APC If Genuine Truce Fails – Gov Kwankwaso
Kano State Governor, Dr Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso has disclosed that dissenting governors of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) may defect to the All Progressives Congress (APC) if ongoing talks to resolve the political impasse threatening the party fail to yield any tangible result.
Speaking to the Hausa Service of the BBC Friday, ahead of the Tuesday meeting of the party scheduled to discuss the crisis, the governor said if genuine truce fails the governors have several options from which to chose, including that of defecting to another party.
“If PDP leaders are circumspect and heed our requests, then we will remain in the fold. But if we smell a rat, we don’t have any stress moving to APC because many of its stalwarts are our people,” he said.
The governor revealed that apart from the seven of them that joined the splinter PDP-II, there were other governors, who although have not indicated their support in public, were sympathetic to their move of protesting against the PDP-I chairman, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur.
Kwankwaso had last Thursday met with stakeholders of the PDP in Kano where the current impasse in the party was top on the agenda.
He is said to be an arrowhead of the group of five northern governors that have been traversing the country to seek ways of re-uniting the ruling party, with visits to several past leaders and elder in the party.
