Kano Govt Sponsoring Protests Against Me In Abuja – Ganduje

The National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr Abdullahi Ganduje, has said the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) led government in Kano State is behind the various protests against him in Abuja. 

But the state government has denied having a hand in the crisis.

There have been protests calling for Ganduje’s removal as national chairman of the party, with groups and party chieftains from the North Central leading the charge.

Ganduje in a statement on Friday by his Special Assistant on Civil Society and Support Groups, Comrade Okpokwu Ogenyi, alleged that the Kano State government had been hiring protesters from the streets, mostly Kwankwasiyya members, some of whom are from the North Central geo-political zone to demand Ganduje’s resignation.

The statement read in part, “We are privy to credible information that Governor Yusuf is working with some persons from the North Central zone and has doled out huge sum of money to some persons to sustain campaign against the Ganduje’s led working committee in his desperate but fruitless mission to remove Ganduje as the national chairman of the APC.

They have now resorted to using some persons in the North Central geo-political zone to demand Ganduje’s removal after they failed woefully to achieve their satanic agenda in Kano State. What is of concern to us is the wastage of state resources badly in need in Kano State for the provision of basic amenities to our people. This is politics taken too far.”

While calling on security agents to be vigilant in order to ensure security of lives and property, the APC chieftain said, “Some of the hired protesters also forgot that they were dressed in Kwankwasiyya T-shirts and caps during the protest to the APC national secretariat, yet claimed to be members of the APC; what a dangerous move to scuttle peace of our party.”

The Spokesperson of Kano State governor, Sunusi Bature Dawakin Tofa, did not respond to calls and a text message put across to him.

But Dawakin Tofa had recently told Daily Trust that the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) and the incumbent governor had nothing to do with anything happening outside their political party.
