Kano APC chairman steps down

Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje

The crisis in Kano’s political terrain has deepened with the resignation of the embattled ruling All Progressive Congress, APC state chairman, Abdullai Abbas, indicted in the feud between Governor Abdullai Ganduje and his deputy, Hafizu Abubakar.

An aide to the Commissioner of Information, Faizu Alfindiki, confirmed to PREMIUM TIMES that Mr. Abbas had resigned.

Although no immediate reason was given for the decision, it adds another twist to the raging controversy in the party in the state.

The deputy governor had recently, in a radio programme, indicated that he would not run on the same ticket with the governor in 2019, citing the fact that he had been sidelined in governance and party affairs in the state. He also expressed dissatisfaction with the removal of his ward chairman.

A rattled Governor Ganfuje immediately ordered that the official be reinstated and urged politicians in the state to respect his deputy in all their actions.

It was learnt that the ex-chairman is scheduled to appear before the state assembly although the invitation has not been formalised.

    Is the ‘ghost’ of Kwankwaso playing havoc?

    • Shahokaya

      Kwankwaso will remain what he is, a ghost that can not enter Kano . Abdullahi Abbas has been appointed as commissioner by Khadimul Islam, Kano State APC leader , Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje and an acting chairman has been appointed in a new strategic approach to finally nail kwakwaso.

        Let’s hear from Kwankwasiyya.

          Kwankwashiorkor was only politically relevant by virtue of the powerful positions he held as Defence Min and Governor. Now he is out of the power vortex, his panderings amount to empty noise which is surely not disturbing Ganduje
