Kano lawmakers dump Kwankwaso

16 March 2016, 20:44

Kano - Kano State House of Assembly members have resolved to stand by Gov Abdullahi Ganduje, who recently fell out with his predecessor, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso.

The lawmakers on Tuesday paid a solidarity visit to the governor to express their loyalty.

Led by the Speaker, Kabiru Alhassan Rurum, 34 of the 40-member state assembly, who visited Ganduje wore different attires and caps, a departure from the dominant red cap, an identity of the Kwankwasiyya movement.

The Speaker said they had decided to get rid of the red cap that had become a fashion, not only amongst the political class but virtually all male persons in Kano, in order to allow the present state government have space to fulfil its mandate to Kano people.

However, Governor Ganduje urged the lawmakers not to discard the red cap; rather, he advised them to use it as a unique symbolism of their party’s greatness in Kano.
