Abdullahi Ganduje, governor of Kano, has described his predecessor, Rabiu Kwankwaso, as the most selfish person he knows.
Ganduje had served as Kwankwaso’s deputy during his tenure as governor of Kano between 1999, 2003, 2011 and 2015 but the duo fell out shortly after Ganduje became governor in 2015.
While receiving some members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Kwankwasiyya Movement who defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state on Wednesday, Ganduje described Kwankwaso as one who imposes his will on others without taking their interest into cognizance.
Muhammad Taraunu, former member, Kano state house of assembly; Binta Spikin, Kwankwaso’s former spokesperson; Aisha Kaita, a zonal woman leader of PDP in the state; and Idris Bala, a Kwankwasiyya leader were among those received from the opposition People’s Democratic Party(PDP) to APC.
Ganduje said, “It is natural to be a bit selfish but I have never seen anyone as selfish as Kwankwaso. It was such that he imposed his whims and caprices on all and exploited (all) for his personal benefit, as against the collective interest of all. ”
“All of us seated here were with him in the past and we made him what he is politically but had to withdraw from his persistent self-conceit.
“We had initiated reconciliations in the past but Kwankwaso is not the repentant type, it is either his bid that is done or he destroys everything.”
