I remain in APC – Kwankwaso

A former Governor of Kano State, Rabiu Kwankwaso, has debunked reports that he has defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) alongside some lawmakers.
Kwankwaso, a Senator representing Kano Central Senatorial district, described the report as a “malicious story” meant to tarnish his image.
Recall that it was reported on Tuesday that Kwankwaso had dumped the APC for the PDP.
However, Kwankwaso’s Chief of Staff, Aminu Abdussalam, who spoke to newsmen on Tuesday night, said the report was “totally unfounded.”
He said the senator and his supporters had not at any time thought of leaving the APC.
“We have not at any time contemplated leaving the APC. We were surprised and deeply appalled when we read the story,” he stated.Abdussalam accused the Kano State government of planting the story to cause disaffection among his supporters after the National Leadership of the APC recognised the leadership of Umar Doguwa as the legitimate Chairman of the party in the state.
“The story was planted by Kano State government and some political opponents who are threatened by the mass followership Senator Kwankwaso enjoys nationwide.
“Kano State government was the one that planted the same story last year, and its agents are still the same characters spreading the false story.
“They are angry that the national leadership of our great party, the APC, has endorsed the Umar Doguwa-led chairmanship of the party in Kano and dismissed their sham congresses.”
