All Progressives Congress (APC) leaders in Kano are raising questions about a secret meeting between President-elect Bola Tinubu and New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) presidential candidate Rabiu Kwankwaso.
The possibility of Kwankwaso serving in the incoming administration was one of the subjects covered during their four-hour discussion in France, according to prior news reports.
This platform indicated that Kwankwaso shouldn’t have any positions in the new administration, not even as a messenger, according to Abdulmajid Kwamanda, the leader of the APC in Kano.

“Should Tinubu ignore our outcry and appoint Kwankwaso, we are going to disrupt the entire APC in the north and withdraw our support for him,” Kwamanda told reporters.
According to Daily Trust, the outrage was exacerbated by an allegedly leaked phone tape between Governor Abdullahi Ganduje and Ibrahim Masari, a former APC vice presidential candidate.
The governor was overheard complaining about unfair treatment during the president-elect’s meeting with Kwankwaso during the phone call. Ganduje said, “Now he (Tinubu) is seeing Kwankwaso as an alternative to us?”
In the recording, Masari, a supporter of Tinubu, tries to pacify the governor by requesting that he wait until he meets with Tinubu and offering words of calmness.

Ganduje has not responded to the situation as of the time this article was published.
