A lawmaker representing Kano State in the House of Representatives, Sha’aban Sharada, has said the All Progressives Congress will lose if the governorship election is held in the state today.
Sharada in an interview with BBC said the ruling party is in deep crisis.
The lawmaker said the crisis in the party led to the meeting that was held at the residence of Senator Ibrahim Shekarau, on Tuesday.
Sharada after the meeting forwarded a petition to the interim chairman of the party, Governor Mai Mala Buni.
“We raised three key issues that we rejected the so-called wards and local governments’ congress conducted by the state government bloc and we never endorsed the exercise entirely.”
“As incompetent people have been given the mantle at the expense of the competent hands both at the ward and local government levels.
“Several state assembly members and even some government’s cabinet members would surreptitiously slur the state government. We only want things to be done in order before we run out of time.
“Had it been that we wanted to confuse; these dedicated members would have endorsed his (Ganduje) actions and remain silent until the electioneering period, just as some of our colleagues did.
“If there were a guber election today in Kano, APC would fail; we don’t want the party to be defeated, hence our intervention,” he said
The lawmaker while speaking on what the reacting of the party chairman would be said, “I believe that he’s an upright person who’s fearless and he’d administer honesty.”
