The national leadership of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has set up a three-man panel to mediate in the crisis in the Kano State chapter of the party.
The party in the state has been thrown into crisis over the face off between Governor Abdulahi Ganduje and his former boss, Sen. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso.
According to the National Chairman of the party, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, the APC National Secretary, Mai Mala Buni, National Organising Secretary, Osita Izunaso and Vice-Chairman (North), Lawan Shuiabu had been mandated to resolve the crisis.
“It is important for the party’s leadership in Kano to be united behind the governor, especially now that resources are very, very lean.
“Let me warn that the greatest disservice we can do to ourselves is to have internal wars, especially in a state as crucial as Kano.”
Speaking earlier, the party spokesman in the state, Bashir Karaye, in a presentation on behalf of the delegation of over 100 elected and appointed party members, condemned Kwankwaso’s behaviour during his last visit to the state.
He said: “Sadly and unfortunately, the purported visit by Senator Kwankwaso was to say the least a misnomer to cultural and religious norms and had assaulted the person of the governor and his government.”
Odigie-Oyegun disclosed this while responding to a presentation by a delegation of the party from Kano at the APC national secretariat in Abuja on Tuesday.
He said: “We have only one governor in Kano State, there is no doubt about this. It is in our interest that the challenge between this two of our leaders does not degenerate further.
