Ganduje moves to stop defection of Jibrin, DG of Tinubu support group, from APC



Abdullahi Ganduje, governor of Kano, is making efforts to stop the defection of Abdulmumin Jibrin, former house of representatives member, from the All Progressives Congress (APC).


On Saturday, Jibrin said he was going to announce his new political party, adding that he has done his best for the party.


The former lawmaker is the director-general of Tinubu support group.


In a statement on Sunday, Abdullahi Abbas, APC chairman, said Ganduje has asked that the crisis among those seeking to represent Kiru/Bebeji federal constituency be resolved.


“Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano state has directed the state secretariat of the All Progressives Congress to immediately take measures for the amicable resolution of the internal differences arising from interested parties seeking nomination to contest election into the Kiru/Bebeji federal constituency,” Abbas said.

“To this end, the party secretariat has complied and summoned a stakeholder meeting to discuss the situation in the constituency.

“An invitation has been sent to all the aspiring candidates for the position.

“Abdulmumin Jibrin Kofa has already accepted the proposal and is ready to attend the meeting.”

The chairman said stakeholders should cooperate with the party in order to resolve the issues among the hopefuls.

Jibrin represented Kiru/Bebeji federal constituency in the eighth assembly. He won reelection in 2019, but was sacked by the court.
