Why lawmakers should not take sides in Kwankwaso/Ganduje feud – Rep. Jibrin

Members of the House of Representatives from Kano State should not be dragged to take sides in  the ongoing feud between the state governor, Umar Abdullahi Ganduje and his predecessor, Senator Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso, one of the members from the state, Abdulmumin Jibrin, has advised.
Jibrin, in an open letter written to the two political allies, said his colleagues would, by taking sides in the face-off be inadvertently escalating the crisis, which he said was instigated by supporters from the two camps to enjoy political rewards.
“Whoever ever takes sides to stoke the embers of enmity in order to raze down your decades-old bond in less than a year, is neither a friend, nor supporter but political panhandler who benefits from the crumbs of the crisis,” he said
He said reconciliatory moves brokered by the concerned stakeholders should henceforth involve “key allies and supporters” of both sides as a way of containing the crisis.
“It is obvious that none of you stands to benefit from this row. The party will suffer. Both of you will be distracted. The masses will bear the brunt, and our political opponents we defeated in the past will avail themselves of our differences to advance their political cause. The lizard finds a space to penetrate through the wall when it finds a crack.
“It is evident that the crisis has gone out of hand as supporters of the either camp have owned up and taken over the crisis, and in the process diminishing your capacity to decide on reconciliatory moves,” he said.
