Kwankwaso vows not to step down for Buhari, Atiku

23 October 2014, 15:16

Kano - Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso of Kano State, who is also a presidential aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress ( APC) has vowed not to step down for either General Mohammadu Buhari or Atiku Abubakar in the race, reports Punch.

He said he is not under pressure to step down for anybody and that nobody has asked him to drop his presidential ambition.

He noted that the APC is not a small party where  the decision of who becomes its presidential flag bearer in the 2015 presidential election would be taken in the bedroom of a party leader.

He lambasted the Peoples Democratic Party , saying that the party had resorted to conducting its presidential primary in the Presidential Villa.
