Why APC leadership needs to resolve the rift between Ganduje & Shekarau

Kano State is an important state to the ruling All Progressives Congress in the northwest because of the number of votes that usually come from the state. 

This is why the ruling All Progressives Congress has tried to win the state in the 2015 and 2019 general elections.

However, available indicators have shown that all is not well with the APC stalwarts in Kano State who helped the party to win the 2019 governorship election in the State.

A report by Daily Trust explained that the face-off between the incumbent Governor of the State, Abdullahi Ganduje, and the Senator representing Kano Central Senatorial District, Senator Ibrahim Shekarau has deepened with the unfolding events in the State politics.

The report revealed that Shekarau, a two-term Governor of the State, and his camp accused Governor Ganduje of not carrying them along after they helped the incumbent Governor to win his reelection in the 2019 governorship election in the State. 

The rift between the two APC leaders in Kano worsened when Ibrahim Shekarau and other aggrieved APC leaders in Kano submitted a petition at the National Secretariat of the party in Abuja on Wednesday and alleged that Governor Ganduje has sidelined them.

Shekarau and other aggrieved APC stalwarts in Kano State explained how they helped Ganduje to win his reelection bid in 2019 and called for the cancellation of the earlier congresses of the party held in Wards and local government areas.

The two political leaders are important to the victory of APC in the 2023 general elections. Senator Shekarau, a two-term Governor of Kano State and a former Minister of Nigeria has a strong political structure in the state that played a vital role in the victory of APC in Kano State in the 2019 general elections.

Remember that if the issue is not resolved before the next general elections, the aggrieved members may work against the party.

This is why the leadership of APC needs to intervene and resolve the face-off between Governor Ganduje and Senator Shekarau before the next elections.
