There are indications that the former Kano state governor, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, has given the go-ahead to his supporters to dump the All Progressives Congress. 

This was made known by his nephew, Musa Iliyasu Kwankwaso, even as there have been rumours of Kwankwanso's likely resignation from the APC. 

Iliyasu Kwankwaso, who is the present commissioner for special duties in Kano state, told Daily Trust that Kwankwaso was ready to decamp to the PDP for the actualisation of his presidential ambition since he could not achieve it in the APC. 

According to reports, big wigs in the PDP were mounting pressure on the former governor to decamp. According to Iliyasu Kwankwaso, the senator representing Kano Central Senatorial District, had already asked his supporters to join the PDP. 

“Already, he has given the go-ahead to his supporters to join the PDP in Kano state so that they can contest in the forthcoming local government election in the state. 

“But what I can assure him is that the APC will win all the 44 local governments because of the growing supporters’ base of Governor Ganduje. 

“It was because of Kwankwaso that the chairman of the PDP was thrown out of office because they wanted to hand over the party structures to him ahead of his defection. 

“They want to use red caps to cause confusion during President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit next month. We will not allow that because Kano people are for Buhari all the time.”
