The Kano State Chapter of All Progressives Congress(APC) has suggested to former Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso, to encourage his children to lead his campaign ahead of 2023 election following his (Kwankwaso) advocacy for a ‘do-or-die’ affairs during the poll.
Penpushing reports that, the ruling party gave the advice, following statement credited to Kwankwaso who declared that his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will not accept another inconclusive election in the state.
The caretaker committee chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC) ,Abdullahi Abass in further reaction, at the Coronation Hall, with party supporters and faithful including Governor Ganduje in attendance, encouraged party supporters to confront and abuse anyone who disrespects the Governor.
”For now we are at the helm, nothing will happen.For today we are at the helm nothing will happen since Kwankwaso is not afraid of death may God made us to see the day and the dead;, he stated.
“He is just lying and bragging, he will not come out and vote during election, his children also, he hide his children in Dubai and lying that its a do or die, let your children come forward the way our own are at the forefront during campaign,” .
“We dare you to come forward with your children, don’t hide them in Dubai, what kind of statement is this? You want death in Kano, ok let us come and die so what?.We are going to repeat on what happened in 2019 in the disputed areas like Gama ward whether you like it or not, this is what we will do in Kano and Nigeria,”
The former Governor had earlier warned the ruling All Progressives Congress(APC) not to take the opposition Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) for granted ahead of the 2023 general elections in the state.
Penpushing further reports that Kwankwaso while addressing number of his party supporters, emphasized that Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will not allow a repeat of what happened in the 2019 election again, when election was declared inconclusive.
“Now they are power-drunk because they are enjoying the seat of power, they are not thinking of leaving power because for them 2023 is indefinite. In their thinking, all these sins they are committing, they will collaborate with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in 2023 and security officials and other leaders to repeat the inconclusive election they orchestrated in Kano in 2019 and then we leave them’, he said.
“2023 will come in different colours, it is going to be a do or die affair, we are going to be ready. In 2023, I am calling on women to take up their pestle and wooden cooking spoons and hold it close to them (to protect their votes)” Kwankwaso declared
Penpushing also reports that, it is recalled that,in 2019, the Peoples Democratic Party( PDP) was leading in the governorship election in Kano State before it was declared inconclusive by the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC).
The inconclusive election, however, led to a supplementary election held in disputed areas which was controversially won by the All Progressives Congress (APC) which paved way for a second term for Governor Abdullahi Ganduje.
