The former Governor of Kano State, Rabiu Kwankwaso, is set to dump the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

 

The renewed call on Kwankwaso to go back to the PDP, heightened a few days after former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, left the APC, with clear indications that he would also be heading back to the PDP.

A source close to Kwankwaso said: “I can remember that Senator Kwankwaso and some PDP bigwigs, including the party’s National Chairman, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, and Abdul Ningi, had met in Kaduna and Abuja respectively, and discussed politics.

 

“Kwankwaso came second to President Muhammadu Buhari during the APC’s primaries ahead of the 2015 general elections, and he has a towering image in many geopolitical zones, and therefore an asset for the PDP.”

 

The source added that Kwanwaso was being approached by some PDP chiefains, so that in the event the APC fielded Buhari the Presidential slot, the contest would be “fierce and competitive with Kwankwaso as the PDP flag bearer.”

Alhaji Sharu Garba Gwammaja, a diehard supporter of Senator Kwankwaso, stated: “I am in total support of Kwankwaso’s return to the PDP, since from all indications he cannot get what he wants in the APC. He should therefore, dump the party, and the best political party he can join to play his politics perfectly, is the PDP.”
