Kano - Former governor of Kano State, Rabiu Kwankwaso, has reacted to the threat made by the state chapter of the All Progressives Congress- to suspend him from the party.
The party in the state had on Thursday threatened to suspend Kwankwaso for orchestrating a violent rally at the burial of Governor Abdullahi Ganduje’s mother.
Reacting through a statement signed by his aide, Yunusa Dangwanu, the former governor said he shied away from visiting the state since May 29, 2015, when he left government, so as not to interfere with the state’s affairs.

Kwankwaso said he had given his successor ‘space and time to settle down and consolidate on his successful programmes and projects that resulted into 100% APC’s success in the 2014 local government and 2015 general elections respectively’.
“It is therefore appalling and rather unfortunate that the good gesture of Sen. Kwankwaso has been mischievously interpreted wrongly.”
“It is also disheartening that few hours after the death of our state Deputy Chairman Isa Ali Danmaraya, the government was busy coercing and misleading some party leadership into addressing a press conference that will only culminate in splitting the APC in Kano,” the statement said.
