I did not fight with Kano APC Deputy Gov candidate – Doguwa


The Majority Leader of the House of Representatives, Ado Alhassan Doguwa who was reported to have engaged in a fight with Kano’s All Peoples Congress deputy governor’s candidate, Murtala Sule Garo, has urged Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje to take full charge of the party and save it from those who want to destroy it if the party were to win at the 2023 general elections.


There was a report of an exchange of blows between the House Leader and the Deputy Governor candidate during a stakeholders meetings at the home of the party’s gubernatorial candidate, Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna, on Sunday, October 30, 2022.


While speaking to the media on Monday, October 31, Ado Alhassan Doguwa, said: “I hold both Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna and Murtala Sule Garo in high esteem and I always hope to see them becoming the Governor and Deputy Governor of our dear State”.


Continuing, he said: “It is on records that there was nowhere I ever disrespected Sule Garo or called him names, but on several occasions, he has made a habit of plotting my downfalls, not once, not twice, as has been shown recently when our party’s presidential candidate, Senator Ahmad Bola Tinubu came to Kano”.


Doguwa added: “When Tinubu prepared to come to Kano I fixed billboards, about ten at strategic locations, welcoming him, but on the night I put up the boards, some hoodlums went berserk in the names of Garo destroying everything. Despite that, I didn’t confront him or talk to him about it”.


As for reports that he attacked Murtala Sule Garo during a meeting of the APC, he discarded it as “nothing but misleading and concocted blackmail” against him because there was nothing like that.


“What happened was that I called the party chairman wanting to see him, and he asked me to go to Gawuna House where they are meeting. Upon arrival at the place in my Sardauna Rano regalia, I went straight to the room where they were and spoke to the party chairman. However, as usual, Murtala Sule Garo, in an insulting manner, asked me to leave. Even after I told him I was there to see the Chairman, he continued insulting me until I was provoked to respond,” he explained.


Garo, he claimed had rushed to hit him and in the process fell over a table with a cup of tea and wounded himself.

“I did not in any way attack him as is being reported,” he said.

Summing up the problems bedevilling the APC in the state, Doguwa warned that it is high time Governor Ganduje agreed to take charge of the party’s affairs otherwise the rifts may hamper the party’s chance at the coming general elections.
