Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has described his predecessor, Rabiu Kwankwaso, as “selfish”, saying he rained curses on him.
Ganduje, while receiving some former members of the Peoples Democratic Party who defected to the All Progressives Congress in the state on Wednesday night, described Kwankwaso as an ‘impostor’.
The governor said, “It is natural to be a bit selfish but I have never seen anyone as selfish as Kwankwaso. It was such that he imposed his whims and caprices on all and exploited (all) for his personal benefit, as against the collective interest of all.
“All of us seated here were with him in the past and we made him what he is politically but had to withdraw from his persistent self-conceit.
“We had initiated reconciliations in the past but Kwankwaso is not the repentant type, it is either his bid that is done or he destroys everything.”
Also, Ganduje explained that shortly after the Supreme Court affirmed his victory, he called on the opposition to join hands with him to move Kano forward but alleged that Kwankwaso rained curses on him.
Prominent among those who defected to the APC in the state include Kwankwaso’s former spokesperson, Binta Spikin; a zonal Woman Leader of PDP in Kano, Aisha Kaita, former member, Kano State House of Assembly, Muhammad Isyaku Taraunu, and a Kwankwasiyya leader, Idris Bala.
