Kwankwaso snubs Kano APC Congress, Doguwa faction calls it “kangaroo exercise”

Former Kano State governor, Senator Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso, was absent at the state’s All Progressives Congress (APC) congress, which held on Saturday.

However, the two other lawmakers from the state, Senator Kabiru Ibrahim Gaya (Kano South) and Senator Barau Jibril (Kano North), attended the congress which was held at the Sani Abacha Indoor Stadium.

Alhaji Abdullahi Abbas, who had been running the affairs of the party in interim capacity, emerged as the substantive chairman.

Before the elections began, a representative of the national leadership of the party, Prince Nwoko Orinze, said they were in the state to ensure that the election was conducted appropriately.

“The congress was organised to fill the vacant seats,” he said.

However, the Umar Haruna Doguwa-led faction of the APC in the state, rejected the congress, describing it as a “kangaroo exercise”.

“What the Abdullahi Abbas-led faction of the party did today (yesterday) was nothing but a kangaroo congress because the party’s national leadership did not give the go-ahead to anybody to conduct congress in the state.

“I am the one recognised as chairman of the APC in Kano by the national leadership and if the party decides to hold a congress in Kano, it will write to me and there was no directive to that effect. And, I can tell you that no state in the federation held congress today. A date will be fixed for the congress and a letter will be sent to all state chairmen to hold it,” he told Daily Trust.
