Our Major Loss To PDP is Senator Kwankwaso -APC Governor

A state governor on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Thursday night, expressed sadness over the defection of former Kano governor, Rabiu Kwankwaso, to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The governor made his feelings known in an exclusive chat with DAILY POST.

Our correspondent had reached him to comment on the mass defection that hit the ruling party this week.

Reacting, the governor who spoke under anonymity, said the APC was still formidable and that recent developments would push the party to work harder ahead of the 2019 general election.

“What has happened is not what we wished but now we have to re-strategize. God knows best”, he said.

“But I can confidently tell you that our major loss to the PDP is Senator Kwankwaso.

“Those are well-informed would understand what I’m saying. As of today, the former Governor is arguably the strongest force in the North West.

“He is my friend and the truth is we are not happy he left but we have to look ahead and face the reality.

“Having said that, the APC remains strong. My appeal is that we all work for the peace, unity and progress of Nigeria.”

Kwankwaso, who represents Kano Central Senatorial District, was one of the Senators who dumped the APC for the PDP on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the lawmaker and another former Kano governor Ibrahim Shekarau have reached a pact ahead of next year polls.

The two prominent figures deliberated a few times in recent months on modalities of working together.

Top on their agenda is taking over the Government House from incumbent governor Abdullahi Ganduje.

Ganduje was Kwankwaso’s deputy for eight years (1999-2003 and 2011 to 2015) but the two fell apart shortly after the 2015 election.
