2019: APC's fear of losing Kano deepens as moves to lure Shekarau with juicy Carrots fails


Leaders of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) may have failed in their bid to forestall an alliance of once estranged Kano State political heavyweights, former Governors, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso and Ibrahim Shekarau.

In a bid to stop the alliance, Governor Abdullahi Ganduje was alleged to have promised Mallam Shekarau the APC Senatorial ticket and the deputy Governors seat to help fight Kwankwaso.

However, Kwankwaso and Shekarau may have joined forces to fight what they see as a common enemy in Ganduje and also cut the APC to size in the 2019 elections.

Forces in the ruling party where not expecting both men to agree to work together in the PDP, where Mallam Ibrahim Shekarau is in firm control of the party in the Kano State.

Sources told The AUTHORITY that a recent meeting by Kwankwaso and Shekarau, for the first time formally in almost 15 years, has rattled members of the ruling party, putting Kano votes at stake.

“The APC will pretend as if nothing is happening, they know that the combination of Shekarau and Kwankwaso will cause problem for Ganduje and Buhari in the Kano State. If Buhari does not win Kano, how is he going to win the presidency?

“Forget the empty noise by Oshiomhole, this is the biggest shock and fear APC has. They tried to lure Shekarau back to APC. But that seems to have failed. Every person must put behind selfish interest and salvage Nigeria from the hands of this confused people,” the source said.

The source further revealed that leaders of the PDP are working hard to ensure that the new found love between Kwankwaso and Shekarau is done fairly to its total success, stressing that PDP leaders will ensure they both support and work for each other and their candidates in all the elections.

“Both men have their eyes fixed on contesting for the presidency, but are expected to sacrifice their personal interest to make the alliance work.

“For now, their common enemy is Ganduje. Ganduje is rattled over the new development. He thought Shekarau will listen to forces in Abuja and not work with Kwankwaso.”
