The Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has described the crisis generated by cry of marginalization within the ruling the All Progressives Congress, APC, by the New Peoples Democratic Party, nPDP, as corruption fighting back.
Ganduje spoke in Kano during a parley with newsmen as part of activities marking his 3rd year anniversary.
He noted that “it’s certainly not a cry for marginalisation, there must be something underground.”
According to the governor, “Mr. President is facing difficult time from corrupt individuals, and these cries of marginalization by a faction of nPDP it’s clearly a matter of corruption fighting back.”
He further explained that “the nPDP nomenclature doesn’t exist anymore for it had for long fused into All Progressive Party where most serving governors, federal Mps and state legislatures were beneficiaries.”
The governor wondered “how do you cry of marginalization when in a forum of 59 APC senators, Dr Bukola Saraki from nPDP was elected as Senate President, so also several serving governors, federal legislatures and local Mp’s , and if you take such issues one after the other the issue of marginalisation doesn’t exist.
“Most of us from nPDP whom I believe are in clear majority do not share the stand and position of this splinter group, and we had since made our representation to national secretariat of our great party.
Ganduje expressed desire to seek for second term in office, subject to the consent and approval of party faithful.
He added, “In a specific term I’m interested in seeking for a second term in office, but it’s the people who hold the ace, and I will officially declare my interest whenever I get their nod.”
