APC to Suspend Sen. Kwankwaso for Organizing “Violent Rally” in Kano State


Kano ex governor, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, is facing suspension from the APC for organising a “violent rally” in the state while paying a condolence visit to the governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, over the death of his mother.

Kano APC chairman, Umar Doguwa, said Kwankwaso, exhibited “acts of indiscipline which should not be allowed to go unpunished”.

The party chairman also alleged that the senator hired a crowd that crossed over the perimeter fence of the Kano airport and damaged some installations.

“When the hired crowd was denied access to the airport premises, they climbed over fences, breaking the iron barriers and destroying the Security scanners. All the pictures are available for confirmation.

“Also, the hired thugs were busy distributing presidential campaign posters, car stickers reading ‘Kwankwassiya 2019, Engr. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso for President, among others,” he said.

The APC chairman said when other dignitaries from all walks of life – including those from the opposition party – came to condole with the governor, none of them made their visits violent

He said the party’s leadership and elders had approved the constitution of a disciplinary committee to penalise Mr. Kwankwaso.

“Such case of party indiscipline committed by Senator Kwankwaso will be thoroughly investigated and dealt with in accordance with the constitution of the party,” Mr. Doguwa said.
