3 Min Read

Senator representing Kano Central, Ibrahim Shekarau has given an explanation for his disagreement with the presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso.

Shekarau spoke in a Monday meeting with the Shura advisory council drawn from 44 local government areas of the state which held at Kano Foundation Hall.

The senator, who joined NNPP from the All Progressives Congress (APC) in May, accused Kwankwaso of betraying him.

He accused Kwankwaso of breaching earlier agreements by deliberately excluding his supporters from positions within the party.

“All the agreements we had with him were betrayed by Kwankwaso and his boys and they did not accommodate one single person from my camp.

“We reached an agreement to accommodate my supporters into various elective positions in the party, but until now, the committee set up could not accommodate one single person apart from the senatorial slot given to me.

“I will never be a party to injustice. My integrity is utmost and not any political position that will make me compromise it and that of my people. Nobody will use position or money against my integrity.

“I am a man of honour and integrity but his governorship candidate (Abba Kabir Yusuf) who was given the responsibility to look at areas to accommodate my people into various elective positions never for one single day do so or even call for meeting talk less of accepting my supporters to contest.

“Nobody will use money to change my conscience. I was a governor for eight years in Kano and people believed in my integrity.

“I am still living in a rented house in Abuja and never allocated a single plot of land to myself when I served as Governor in Kano and I challenged anyone who knows my plot of land to expose it,” Shekarau said.

The senator however declined to inform his followers on whether he is leaving the NNPP but assured them that the next line of action will be communicated to them within a few weeks to come.
