President Tinubu Set to Storm Kogi to Flag Off APC Governorship Campaign The Kano State Chairman of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), Hashimu Dungurawa, has described the emergence of Dr Umar Abdullahi Ganduje as the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as a “big mistake.”
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Dungurawa, who spoke to journalists in Kano on Saturday, said Ganduje has no track record of political success and that his government in Kano was marred by allegations of corruption.
“This is a person that is still facing charges of alleged dollar video clip saga, he also allegedly squandered borrowed billions of naira from banks in the name of capital projects but ended up with some few jobs around,” Dungurawa said.
He added that there are many capable APC members who could have been chosen as National Chairman, but that the party instead chose Ganduje, whose political successes are “not immediately spelt out without attachment to somebody.”
Dungurawa predicted that the APC would lose the upcoming bye-elections in Kogi, Bayelsa, and one other state because of Ganduje’s leadership.
“The Kogi, Bayelsa and one other elections that are coming up on November APC and indeed President Tinubu would fully realise their huge mistakes of allowing Dr Umar Abdullahi Ganduje to becomes the party Chairman,” Dungurawa said.
He also warned President Tinubu not to allow Ganduje to continue as APC Chairman beyond his caretaker period, saying that “nothing good ever befall the Party” with Ganduje at the helm.
He reminded President Bola Tinubu that Ganduje has always relied on Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso for political success and that he has never won an election without Kwankwaso’s help.
