Don’t Destroy Kano – Kwankwaso Cautions FG, Says NNPP Won’t Allow It


Leader of the Kwankwasiyya Movement and the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP)’s Presidential Candidate in the 2023 elections, Senator Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso, has accused the All Progressive Congress (APC)-led Federal Government of seeking to disrupt the existing peace and throw Kano State into chaos.

Kwankwaso, who is a former Governor of the North-West State said it is unfortunate that the President Bola Tinubu administration is listening and carrying out bad advice from enemies of Kano.

His reactions comes against the backdrop of the current Kano emirate tussle where Federal security agencies with constitutionally assigned responsibility of ensuring peace, law and order, are allegedly giving support to the deposed Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero.

The NNPP Standard bearer, who spoke while flagging-off the construction of 82 kilometres rural road networks at his hometown, Madobi, said Kano people are ready to resist any attempt to undermine the constituted authority in the State.

According to him; “We have mass followership because people believe in us, we are pro-people and the NNPP administration is determined to serve them anywhere they vote for it.

“We will not fold our arms and watch enemies of the state destroying the peaceful co-existence of our dear state, as we shall do everything possible to support the governor to succeed. I am happy that he is not distracted and is focused on achieving his goals.

“There are people from Kano, enemies of the state, who also suffer mental illness and are the ones advising the Federal Government on how to take over Kano through a State of Emergency. This is madness of the highest order that the good, peace loving and committed people Kano will resist.”

Further alleging that some opposition members have hidden towards 2027 elections, Senator Kwankwaso said; “In the build ups to 2027, some desperate politicians are already on a mission of disruption, but we will rather prefer the two of us to lose than to allow them to crush us unnecessarily.

“We dare anybody, who thinks he can victimise us politically, to go and be rest assured that we are ready for the fight. We are not afraid to be out of power because we will remain politicians in or out of government, we cannot run away from our destiny, we are humans, we know what is good for us and we will pursue it vigorously”.

The former Kano State Governor cautioned the Federal Government to refrain from heeding the advise of those he described as “unpatriotic politicians” from Kano, saying such characters will only contribute to its failure and doom because they do not have connections with the good people of Kano.

He assured that the people of Kano will resist any attempt to undermine the constitutional responsibility of the Governor by any individual or group.

On the best way forward for the State, the NNPP national leader said; “We are open to dialogue, truce and reconciliation, but we will not accept intimidation and political harassment of any sort.

“We are not afraid of opposition because we know how to play politics and we have all it takes to protect ourselves from any evil”.
