Kano APC Crisis: What We Discussed With Tinubu — Shekarau

Former Kano State Governor Ibrahim Shekarau has revealed what he discussed with the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu on the party’s crisis in Kano State.

Gatekeepers News reports that a former Governor of Kano State, North West Nigeria, Ibrahim Shekarau, said a meeting of members of his faction of the All Progressives Congress (APC) last Sunday in Kano with the party’s National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, was on the party’s lingering crisis in the state.

The State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje’s loyalists constitute the other faction of the APC in Kano and control the leadership until the Federal High Court in Abuja, last week, voided the congresses that produced the party’s leaders.

Shekarau said the crisis in the Kano APC has nothing to do with Ganduje but with the state’s leadership of the party.

Shekarau said the meeting with Asiwaju Tinubu was strictly on the Kano APC crisis.

Shekarau told BBC Hausa that Asiwaju Tinubu invited him for the meeting in Lagos after he was briefed on the party crisis in Kano by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje.

He said: “I told Asiwaju Tinubu that the crisis in Kano APC was not between myself and Ganduje. It is a disagreement of the party leadership in the state. We were sidelined in the affairs of the party in the state.

“Asiwaju Tinubu told me that Governor Ganduje initially briefed him about the crisis. So, as a leader, he deemed it necessary to invite me to hear from me and he sent for me and we met on Sunday in Lagos.”

Shekarau added that such a meeting with the party’s national leader was usual as they had always met to discuss issues in the APC
