The Chairman of the Kano State Peoples Democratic Party, Shehu Sagagi, has asked the leadership of the party to do everything possible to stop Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso from leaving the party.
Sagagi made this known during the visit of the presidential campaign team of a former Senate President and chieftain of the PDP, Bukola Saraki, to Kano.
The team was led by the Director, Bukola Saraki Presidential Campaign Directorate, Prof Iyorwuese Hagber.
The Kano PDP chairman stated that Bukola Saraki and other party leaders must persuade Kwankwaso from defecting.
He stated that given Kwankwaso’s strong political structure his exit from the PDP at this time would spell doom for the party in the 2023 election.
“I am advising the PDP to have a dialogue with Kwankwaso because if they allow him to defect, it will not augur well for the PDP and its entirety,” Sagagi said.
Recall that former Governor of Kano State, Musa Kwankwaso, on Thursday confirmed his intention to dump the PDP for the New Nigeria People Party ahead of the 2023 general elections.
Kwankwaso in an interview with BBC Hausa disclosed that he would announce his next political move before March ends.
This is coming few days after the former governor while speaking on Nasara FM, in Kano asked Nigerians to look for an alternative to the All Progressives Congress and the PDP in the 2023 general elections.
Kwankwaso who claimed that the main political parties have nothing to offer said, “I didn’t see anything that either APC or PDP will show or tell Nigerians to get convinced and vote for them in the coming 2023 elections.
So I think people should now come to think of the right party and people to support and vote for so that we can rescue the present situation.
“In 2015, we gave the leadership of the state to some, thinking that they will make it, but not knowing that it won’t yield any positive outcome. That is why we are back to rescue our state.”
