Former Kano state governor Rabi’u Kwankwaso and his supporters are considering defecting from the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) to to either Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) or Peoples Redemption Party (PRP).
A source within the Kwankwasiyya, a political movement led by Senator Kwankwaso, said members of the movement have been conducting series of meetings on the issue and that they would soon come up with a stand on which among the two political parties they would join.
“They have agreed to dump the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) but the issue at the stake now is which party they will join between PDP and PRP. They are still contemplating but I can confirm to you that they will soon finalise the issue and come up with a stand,” the source told Daily Trust.
But when contacted, Kwankwasiyya stalwart, Yunusa Dangwani denied knowledge of any plan by Kwankwaso or Kwankwasiyya to defect from APC.
Dangwani said: “We have not discussed anything related to Kwankwaso’s defection from APC to PDP or PRP. We are still members of the ruling APC.
“We have been hearing this for some times now, but it is just mere rumor and we cannot stop people from speculations. We are APC members who believed in Kwankwasiyya’s ideologies.”
