Former Kano State Governor, Rabiu Kwankwaso, has debunked speculations of him defecting from the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Kwankwaso stressed that he had no plan to dump the PDP for the APC, maintaining that he is still committed to ensuring his party’s victory in 2023.

Speaking with Channels Television yesterday in an interview which was monitored by Africa Daily News, New York, the former governor admitted that there are issues regarding him in the PDP.

He recalled how his supporters were unfairly treated during the party’s congress in Kaduna in 2021.

Kwankwaso claimed that the PDP has not treated him fairly over the years.

According to Kwankwaso: ‘As we speak, there is no plan for me to leave the PDP, to join APC, or any other party.

‘There were issues which are very clear to almost everybody; that we had congress in April last year in Kaduna, which I felt and many of my supporters in the North-west and even beyond felt that I was not being treated well and Kano was not being treated the way it should be.

‘I believe that was the beginning of those issues to the extent that people thought because of that, we would leave the PDP for APC or any other party.’

There are speculations that the grassroots politician could leave for APC where he could play very critical roles. Pundits believe he is only marking time in the PDP while waiting for the outcome of the convention of the All Progressives Congress (APC) which is slated for next month. Kwankwaso is also believed to be nursing a Presidential ambition although he has always insisted that he is still ‘consulting’.
