Kano state Governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje on Saturday in Kano, declared that he would be glad to receive the former Governor of the state and political rival, Senator Rab’u Musa Kwankwaso back to the All Progressive Congress (APC) after the general elections.

Ganduje who stated this while receiving Alhaji Ibrahim Na-Kaduna, chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) from Yalwa Ward in Dala Local Government where Ali Sani Madakin Gini, PDP’s Kano Central Senatorial candidate hails from, said he would be ready to receive Kwankwaso any time he made up his mind to rejoin APC.

According to him, “in APC we take all as human beings. We treat them with all manner of dignity and respect. That is why we are doing our best to woo new entrants into our fold. Even him (Kwankwaso) we wanted him to come and rejoin our party.

“When he was planning to come back, he came with a condition that, we must support his candidate for the presidency. We told him pointblank that as far as we are concerned there is no vacancy in the Villa. We made him understand vividly clear that, we could not support any other candidature apart from that of President Muhammadu Buhari.”

Ganduje further stated that, “Kwankwaso was only busy doing what he thought were ways to get to President Muhammadu Buhari to tell him that he wanted to stage a comeback. But when he saw the handwriting on the wall clearly, he retreated. This is so because we told our President not to take any serious action and not to even entertain him, until after the general elections.

“If we accept him before elections, he could beat his chest at the end of it and boast that he made the victory possible. We now said let him rejoin when election is over. That is after the victory come calling.”

Ganduje explained that, “this effort of rescuing Kwankwasiyya followers, which is tagged ‘Operation Tsamar Nama’ is designed to, specifically, help those followers understand the true picture of the predicament they are in. So we are welcoming you for this giant step you have just taken.”

He further noted that, “APC is an ideology-based political structure, with articulate policies that are meant for the development of the nation generally. We are at peace with all segments of the society.

“We are at peace with the Emirate Council, with the business community, with Clerics, with youth, with women and with all categories of good citizens.

“That is why we are empowering our people, because we believe that, when their life is improved, it will also translate into societal growth and development.”

However, Na-Kaduna who was presented to Governor Ganduje by the member of Kano State House of Assembly, representing Dala local Government Area, Babangida Alasan Yakudima, lamented before the Governor how the leader of Kwankwasiyya group, Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso has been insensitive to the plight of his followers.

According to him, “Kwankwaso is only interested in putting his followers to many troubles and political crises. When such things happen, before you know it, he takes to his heel. How can such a person be a leader?”

He further revealed that, “at a point in time, the North Central Senatorial candidate in PDP, Madakin Gini, had wanted to run away from the Kwankwasiyya group. Plans were on top gear, but all of a sudden, we just heard that he made a U-Turn, that he is still with Kwankwaso.”
