Kwankwaso must be punished, Kano's APC secretary maintains

13 March 2016, 15:45

Benue – The secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Kano state, Abbas Sani has maintained that former governor Rabi'u Kwankwaso must be "punished" for the alleged violent rally at the burial of Governor Abdullahi Ganduje’s mother.

According to Premium Times, Sani said this after the chairperson of the APC in Kano, Umar Doguwa, made a u-turn by disowning the statements he made on Thursday threatening Kwankwaso with suspension for organising the "violent rally". 

Sani said Doguwa's u-turn was "unfortunate", adding that there would be an investigation.

"The APC state working committee disassociate itself from the Chairman’s rather sad twisted position and the action is nothing but a betrayal of trust shouldered on him."

"The Chairman’s remarks are his personal opinion and that of his mentor which will not change the earlier position of investigating the action of Kwankwaso and bringing him to book," Sani was quoted as saying. 

Meanwhile, Kwankwaso has denied being behind any "violent rally" in Ganduje town.
