The Kano State Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Haruna Umar Doguwa, has backed down from his position that the former Governor of the State and current Senator, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, should face disciplinary proceedings. Mr. Doguwa’s previous position was that Mr. Kwankwaso should face disciplinary proceedings for allegedly maltreating the present Kano State Governor Abduallahi Umar Ganduje during a condolence visit.
Mr. Doguwa told reporters in Kano today that he made his previous statements under the duress of Party leaders. He stated that, “I was coerced to sign [his previous public memorandum] under duress.”
According to him, “having reviewed the reaction of the earlier press statement, I and other officials of our Party deemed it necessary to take corrective measures to preserve unity, cohesiveness, and to jealously guard our hard earned victory Kano State.”
He added that, “we have observed with great concern the reactions from our Party members, and indeed the general public, which turnout to be negative.“
