Party Defection: Lamido, Aliyu Got It Wrong – Kwankwaso -Kwankwaso


It seems more is coming out of the G7 struggle after the defeat of the ruling government of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), as Kano State governor, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, yesterday expressed his disappointment over the decision of the governors of Jigawa and Niger states,Sule Lamido and Banagida Aliyu, to go back to PDP.

In an interview with newsmen in his office, governor Kwankwaso, who is the senator-elect, Kano central constituency explained that it was a political miscalculation on the part of the governors considering that the ruling party was not in good shape at the moment.

Kwankwaso, who further noted that both Lamido and Aliyu were behind the G7 struggle, added that the document prepared by Lamido during the formation of the G7, provided options of establishing a new party, getting into established party or joining All Progressive Congress (APC), but no option of going back to PDP.

“The G7 were embarrassed by what Lamido and Aliyu did, they can hardly be trusted with anything,” he stated.

According to him, in the eve of the struggle, they rejected all other options and chose to defect to APC, the party that waited patiently for their decision.

“Lamido and Aliyu have gotten what they deserved”, his verdict.

For Aliyu, Kwankwaso said the big blow he received from Nigerlites would have taught him a good lesson.

Kwankwaso predicted that governor Lamido of Jigawa and Aliyu of Niger in no distance time join APC so as to work as one family for the betterment of the nation, adding that “APC must learn not to be a monster like PDP who went all out to insult and disrespect its members.

Governor Kwankwaso said that APC would not have an excuse of making the mistakes committed by the ruling party, PDP by abandoning its valued members when they take the reign of leadership.
