The New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Kano State chapter has on Thursday said that the losses suffered by the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje in the last election has led to the verbal attacks on its presidential candidate, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso.
The party stated this while reacting to Ganduje’s recent media attack on his former boss.
The state chairman of the party, Hasimu Dungurawa said “The pain inflicted by Kwankwaso on his political godson that climaxed losing his ward in a competitive election was indeed elixir for the attack.”
Dungurawa insisted that Ganduje is who he is today because of Kwankwaso’s political magnanimity.
He warned Ganduje not to forget that Kwankwaso is his political master.
He said, “The attack was a wrong message in Nigeria’s political space against the backdrop that available records indicated that Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje is what he is today due largely to Kwankwaso’s large heart and political magnanimity.
If Ganduje has forgotten, he is talking to his political master who you served as Deputy Governor for 8 years and the same Kwankwaso that made him representative at Lake Chad Commission, Personal Secretary when he was Minister of Defense.
The same Kwankwaso after ensuring that he kept Ganduje closely, and against all odds installed him as successor in 2015 after serving out as governor for a second term.
Ganduje has not won elections on his own from 1999 to date, and the last General elections where he lost home and away reinforces this position.”
