Abuja - The opposition All People’s Congress (APC) said Kano State Governor, Dr Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, was “welcome” to join the party.
A Senator representing Kano South, Senator Kabiru Ibrahim Gaya, said the leadership of APC would be happy to embrace Kwankwaso if he joined the party as it made preparations for the 2015 general election.
“I am happy that governor Kwankwaso is coming to APC with his people. Why should I envy people to come and help me in building my party? He is much welcome and we need people like him to join us and push the country forward. It is God that gives whatever He chooses to His servants, so why should I envy anyone coming to join hands with us in our strong party?” quipped Gaya.
According to him, if Kwankwaso eventually joined the party, the APC would sit with him to fashion out modalities on how to further strengthen the structures and pillars of the party.
Some APC heavyweights in the state are reportedly against the possibility of Kwankwaso joining the party. It is alleged they are. They allegedly argued that before the official joined the opposition party, he should follow some “criteria” like other members.
The sentiments come amid moves by the APC to entice the aggrieved governors of the ruling People Democratic Party (PDP) into their party ahead of the next general election.
Infighting and divisions have beset the ruling party ahead of the crucial 2015 poll.
A faction recently broke away from the party.
