How Kwankwaso Manipulated Me — Shekarau

The Senator representing Kano Central senatorial district, Ibrahim Shekarau says he and his supporters were “manipulated” by the presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Rabiu Kwankwaso.

Gatekeepers News reports that Shekarau spoke in an interview with Channels Television.

Shekarau said the party did not include the name of any of his associates on the candidates’ list sent to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), despite the establishment of a committee to ensure a merger between his associates and Kwankwaso’s allies.

Shekarau said, “That is the least you can call it — betrayal, outright disregard, outright manipulation.

“Our guiding principle, which is known to all my political associates, is the protection of our image and integrity, and you can’t have your integrity protected if there is not going to be sincerity and if there is not going to be trust and truth.”

Shekarau when asked if he was promised anything by the PDP, said he did not join the party because of personal interests, adding that the PDP promised to be fair to his associates.

“There was not any promise or assurances except the assurances of being fair, sincere and trustworthy with the associates that we have,” he said.

“That is what we are looking for anywhere we move, Two things are our guiding principles — what kind of people are you interacting with and what kind of interaction are you promotion. Through our interactions with the PDP, we were satisfied.”
