A former Governor of Kano state, Rabiu Musa Kwakwanso has explained the reason why members of his group in Kano state did not attend the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Convention held on Saturday at the Eagle Square, Abuja.
In a statement personally signed by him, the former Minister of Defence, said “regrettably all the congresses that we conducted at the wards, Local Government Councils and at the State level were not recognized by the outgoing National Executive Council of the party.”
According to him, “I felt that presenting ourselves at such an important event will not be in the overall interest of the entire convention that is assuming we are allowed access into the convention ground.
“Because there are high chances that our presence could create embarrassments and a lot of friction similar or even worse than what occurred in the pavilions of delegations from Imo and Delta States during yesterday’s convention. However, as the new EXCO settles to start the efforts of uniting the party we wish you the very best.”
He however, congratulated the newly elected national chairman of APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and his newly elected members of the Executive Council.
