Kano APC crisis may affect Tinubu’s chances in 2023, says Doguwa


Al Hassan Doguwa, majority leader of the house of representatives, says the internal crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kano may affect the success of Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the party, at the 2023 poll.


Dogunwa said this at a press conference in Abuja on Friday.


Doguwa, a lawmaker representing Doguwa/Tudun Wada federal constituency in the state, said since Governor Abdullahi Ganduje faced the party’s presidential campaign runnings, the Kano APC party structure has been left in the hands of people who are frustrating loyal members.


“It is my hope and it is the hope of the APC people in Nigeria that Bola can be able to discharge his duties; that Bola can be able to consolidate the gains earlier laid down by President Muhammadu Buhari,” Doguwa said.

 “I want to say today without any fear of contraction; without any fear of intimidation; without any fear of any quarter or any authority anywhere that there is fire on the mountain as far as the APC is concerned in Kano State. There is fire on the mountain — I repeat, there is fire on the mountain. This is the right time to say it because we have been going through a silent crisis, especially in the area of party administration and politicking with a lot of intrigue and exclusion of members.


“Management and administration of the party are being done exclusively by a few members of the party who is, by all standing, not supposed to handle what they are handling in the APC. I want to say for the purpose of clarification that I am talking about party politics in Kano; in our party, the APC.”


The lawmaker also questioned the loyalty of Murtala Garo, Atiku Abubakar’s inlaw and APC deputy governorship candidate in the state.


On Monday, Doguwa was accused of hitting Garo with a teacup during a meeting in Kano.


According to BBC Hausa, the House of Representatives member was angry that he was not invited to the meeting as a stakeholder of the party in the state.


The deputy governorship candidate alleged that Doguwa threw a teacup at him while demanding an explanation for his exemption from the meeting.
