Apply Wisdom, Intervene In Kano Emirate Crisis Now – NNPP Chairman Tells Tinubu

The Chairman of the New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP), Hashimu Dungurawa, has told President Bola Tinubu that his silence on the Kano Emirate crisis is no longer golden and may cost him the 2027 presidency.

To this end, he urged President Tinubu to take action and ensure the deposed Emir, Ado Bayero, is banished from Kano.

Dungurawa made the call while speaking to newsmen in his Lugard House office, on Sunday.

According to the NNPP chairman, the ongoing Emirate crisis is already giving the President bad names, and it is time for him to take action.

“Your perceived stance on the ongoing Kano Emirate tussle would surely work against you in the 2027 presidential polls because if you think you can use it to secure grounds in Kano, when the chips are down it will dawn on you that you have made costly mistakes,” Dungurawa said.

The NNPP Chairman also hinted that the party would present Rabiu Kwankwaso as its presidential candidate in 2027, arguing that the former Kano State Governor has what it takes to win the polls.

“We are going to field Kwankwaso as our party’s presidential flag-bearer in 2027, because for now, he stands as the only person who will make it to the Presidency and he stands the chances of becoming the next President God willing,” he added.
