Former Governor of Kano State Sen. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso is about to conclude his plans of joining the governing All Progressives Congress.

Kwankwaso, a former Minister of Defence and Senator representing Kano Central in the 9th senate is not comfortable in the People’s Democratic Party since the disrupted Zonal Congress of the party that took place in April at Kaduna.

The Congress which was disrupted by members of the Kwankwasiyya movement happened after they realised that their preferred candidate for the Zonal Vice Chairmanship of the party would not win the election.

Kwankwaso who was supporting Mohammed Jamo Yusuf against Bello Hayatu Gwarzo insisted that he must be allowed to bring the Zonal Vice Chairman of the party from his camp.

Both Mohammed Jamu and Sen. Bello Hayatu Gwarzo are from Kano.

POLITICS DIGEST revealed that Sen. Bello Hayatu Gwarzo is enjoying the support of majority stakeholders of the North West Zone including Governor Aminu Tambuwal whom Kwankwaso had accused of buying the nomination form for Bello Hayatu in an interview with BBC Hausa.

Following the outcome of the congress that was not held and the sensing of defeat by Kwankwaso, he became convinced that the PDP is not ready to support him and his candidates hence the start of consultation with members of the APC including Ashiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Kwankwaso met Tinubu in Saudi Arabia and discussed in a closed door critically on his next political move.

Sources close to Mr. Kwankwaso told POLITICS DIGEST that he has being in consultation with governor of Yobe State and Chairman of APC Extraordinary Caretaker and Convention Committee Mai Mala Buni.

Some of the governors that are in frontilne of wooing Kwankwaso include governor Badaru Abubakar of Jigawa State and Mohammed Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State who just joined the party on Tuesday as exclusively reported by this paper.

Kwankwaso will be joining the APC with thousands of his supporters including the 2019 gubernatorial candidate of the party in Kano Abba Kabir Yusuf and his Deputy Aminu Abdussalam Gwarzo.

Majority of Kwankwasiyya Stakeholders this paper reliably gathered will not join Kwankwaso in the APC.

These are majority of people that served him in the state executive council.

Kwankwaso is expected to defect to the APC the moment he finished consultation but will be any moment before the ward, local and state congresses of the APC that will be taking place in August.

Kano State Commissioner for Rural Development Musa Iliyasu Kwankwaso has described the decision of Kwankwaso to join the party as a welcome one but warned him not to come and destabilise their party.

“Even if he comes, he knows they is a leader in the party and he’s Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, the way Ganduje followed him, this is the time for him to pay back.

Ganduje is the leader of APC in Kano as governor of the state ” said Musa Iliyasu.

A video of Buba Galadima’s interview on DW Hausa  that’s seen circulating on Wednesday evening had accused PDP of not ready as an opposition party.

Mr Galadima has condemned the weakness of PDP as an opposition party in the country describing it as a failed party.

“PDP is not a just party from day one, it is known for that, they have a group, if you don’t belong to that group, forget about getting an opportunity in the party and whoever knows what he’s doing will not stay in the party.

Mr. Galadima is an ally and close associate of Kwankwaso. The video was shared by the media aide of Kwankwaso Saifullahi Hassan on WhatsApp group and Facebook page.

Many people saw his short audio clip on DW Hausa as someone that’s speaking the mind of his friend and associate Mr. Kwankwaso.
