2 Steps Kwankwaso Needs To Take As APC Crisis Continues In Kano

The former Kano State governor, Mr. Rabiu Kwankwaso, needs to take some steps which would help the opposition party in Kano State. The APC is in a deep crisis and it could be an avenue for the former governor and his PDP to get chances or influences ahead of the next general elections.

The leadership tussle within the ranks of the APC in Kano State should be an advantage for the former governor, whose dream is to bring the PDP back to power. If the PDP returns to power, Kwankwaso himself will get more power. Now, the first step is to go to the foundation of the PDP in Kano and rejig or resuscitate the party.

The PDP itself is weak because of some skirmishes within its own fold. There is a tussle between Kwankwaso himself and some other personalities including Mr. Aminu Wali, a top national figure in the PDP. Kwankwaso needs to find a way to bridge the gaps and settle whatever problems the PDP may have ahead of the said general polls.

And while Mr. Kwankwaso is working on bringing sanity and unity to the PDP, he should try as much as possible to create rooms for new members, who may want to join the party while the APC crisis lasts.

And the second step is for him to lure APC loyalists into the PDP. Defection is allowed in politics and Kwankwaso should be ready to welcome politicians who would be willing and ready to abandon or dump the APC for the PDP.

The race may be more frustrating for some top APC members. Mr. Ibrahim Shekarau has some politicians whom he leads and if it becomes clearer that he can't make it in the APC, he may opt for the alternative, which is the People's Democratic Party.

Besides, while the APC crisis continues in Kano State, Mr. Kwankwaso can approach the embittered APC leaders with a view of bringing them into the PDP. There is nothing bad if Kwankwaso approaches Shekarau and convince the APC stalwarts to join the PDP.
