Kano Gov’t distracting people from its failures with emirship tussle –APC

Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kano State, Alhaji Abdullahi Abbas, has replied to his New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) counterpart, Hashimu Dungurawa, saying President Bola Ahmed Tinubu will not suffer defeat in the state in 2027.
The NNPP state chairman, Hashimu Dungurawa, was reported as saying the lingering emirship tussle may negatively work against President Tinubu’s second term in 2027.
But Abbas in a statement on Monday in Abuja said the APC is now more united, popular and would deliver triple of what the votes it got in the last presidential election in Kano, stressing that Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf and national leader of the NNPP, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso would be defeated because of their approach to issues of governance.
He said, “The crisis of confidence rocking the factionalised opposition NNPP and its embattled leader, Senator Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso, is embarrassingly exposing its dismal failure, even as it is boasting of clinching the nation’s presidency come 2027.
“We are using this medium to assure our able and capable President, including the party national leadership that Kano State APC is now more united, popular and is daily attracting politically valuable people into our fold. We are ready and will deliver more than triple of the votes we got in 2023 presidential election.
“Aside widely acknowledged poor performance of Governor Abba Yusuf-led NNPP government in Kano State in the last one year, the party’s penchant for causing and sponsoring crisis in a peaceful state he inherited and some of his anti-people’s policies are factors voters will consider in the next election.
“It is a public knowledge that while other state governors were commissioning one project or the other to mark their one year in office, the NNPP Kano State government was busy distracting the good people of Kano from his obvious failures through the contentious emirate law as a tactic from his inadequacies in office.”
The APC chairman also said Kwankwaso lacked the clout and national outlook to win the presidential election.
