Former Kano State Governor, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso

The Deputy Chairman of the All Progressives Congresses (APC) in Kano State, Shehu Maigari, has given reasons why the alliance between Ibrahim Shekarau and Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso broke down.

Speaking to newsmen in Kano on Monday, the APC chieftain stated that both politicians were not like minds.

Shekarau had recently defected to the APC shortly after Kwankwaso joined the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

They had initially agreed to work together but Shekarau later kicked, accusing the national leadership of the PDP of sidelining him in favour of Kwankwaso.

Reacting, Maigari said: “Joining forces between Governor Ganduje and Shekarau is a blessing not only to the APC, Kano people, but also to Nigeria as a whole.

“Politics is a game of belief and ideology and the two politicians shared common beliefs and ideologies.

“I have said it sometime ago that the alliance between Senator Kwankwaso and Shekarau was a Kangaroo one and would not last longer because they differed in beliefs and ideologies.

“I said the latter will never sacrifice his good reputation that built for decades for the former. Now I have been vindicated.

“Shekarau and his supporters returned to a home they actively participated in laying its foundation.”
