The governor of Kano State, Abba Kabir Yusuf,  has responded to the call by the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje stating that he was not invited to join the party through the appropriate channels.

This was revealed by the Governor’s spokesperson and Director General of Media and Publicity, Sanusi Bature Dawakin-Tofa.

Ganduje during the stakeholders meeting at the APC campaign office in Kano extended an invitation to the Governor and his followers to dump the New Nigeria People’s Party, NNPP and join APC in the state.

The governor, like everyone else in Kano, learned about Ganduje’s appeal through social media, but he hasn’t made up his mind to switch from the NNPP to the APC just yet, Dawakin-Tofa said. 

“Well, like every other person in Kano, the Governor heard Ganduje making calls on social media. We believe as a former Governor, he should know the right channel of communication if he truly wanted to pass information across to the Governor.

“And as for whether the Governor will join APC, I can confirm to you that my boss has not decided to leave his party the NNPP for APC yet. Let me repeat, the Governor has not decided to join APC for now,” Dawakin-Tofa noted.

it would be recalled that during the meeting Ganduje had said, “our hands are open for other political parties to join our party. We call on the Governor of Kano State and all the supporters of NNPP to join our party. We are assuring him of a very good environment in our party, the APC. His coming to the party will strengthen the APC at the state and national level and will drive development to Kano State as the most populous state in the federation.

“If we can do it at national levels why can’t we do it at the state level.

“We will soon commence e-registration and our target is to have highest number of membership in Kano and to have one party state in Kano.

“We are in talks with smaller parties to dump their parties and join the APC. And soon, Governors, Senators and others would our party,” Ganduje however stated.
