The Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, has on Wednesday night, labelled his predecessor, Rabiu Kwankwaso, as a selfish person.
Governor Ganduje, while receiving some former members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who had defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state, also described Kwankwaso as an ‘impostor’.
Ganduje told his audience:
“It is natural to be a bit selfish but I have never seen anyone as selfish as Kwankwaso. It was such that he imposed his whims and caprices on all and exploited (all) for his personal benefit, as against the collective interest of all.
“All of us seated here were with him in the past and we made him what he is politically but had to withdraw from his persistent self-conceit.
“We had initiated reconciliations in the past but Kwankwaso is not the repentant type, it is either his bid that is done or he destroys everything.”
In his narration, Ganduje explained that shortly after the Supreme Court affirmed him as victor and Governor of Kano State, he called on the opposition government to join hands with him to move Kano forward, but he alleged that Kwankwaso abused him seriously.
In the list of those who newly decamped to the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Kano state was Kwankwaso’s former spokesperson, Binta Spikin; a zonal Woman Leader of the PDP in Kano, Aisha Kaita; former member, Kano State House of Assembly, Muhammad Isyaku Taraunu, and a Kwankwasiyya leader, Idris Bala.
