Kano: Kwankwaso Politically Irrelevant – Ganduje

Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has claimed to have retired his predecessor Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso from politics.

News Nigeria recalls that the All Progressives Congress (APC) had won two out of the three federal constituencies (Tudunwada/Doguwa and Kumbotso) and four the state assembly seats (Madobi, Bunkure, Minjibir and Rogo constituencies) in the rerun election held last Saturday.

Speaking when he was presented the elected lawmakers at the Kano State government house by the Speaker of the House of Assembly, Abdul’aziz Garba Gafasa, Ganduje said the election has forced Kwankwaso to retire.

He said: “Some years back when he (Kwankwaso) was warming up to contest for president, he boasted that he would retire President Muhammadu Buhari and me from politics. But if you look at it now, who then is forced to retire?

“The member of the state assembly from Madobi, member House of Representatives from there, Chairman of the local government, councillors, senator where Madobi falls, the state governor and president are all APC. So, we have retired him from politics”.

Speaking on the loss of Abdulmumini Jibrin in Kiru/Bebeji federal constituency re-run, Ganduje blamed the former lawmaker for the crisis in the party in that consistency.

“We couldn’t get that seat as a result of the crisis that rocked the party at the constituency.

“The APC candidate was in conflict with the leadership of the party in the state, in the local government, with the local government administration and even with the electorate. That caused us to lose the seat,” he said.
