Two House of Representatives members from Kano state on Monday marched to the headquarters of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in the state to submit the results of a parallel congress that members of the party loyal to them organized.
The two representatives, Sha’aban Sharada (Kano Municipal) and Tijjani Abdulkadir Jobe (Tofa/Dawakin Tofa/ Rimingado, the constituency of the state governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje) are among party stakeholders in the state who are opposed to the consensus arrangement adopted by the party for the Saturday ward congress across the state.
