Why Tinubu deleted Kwankwaso from Ministerial list – APC

The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has given reason why President Bola Tinubu dropped the idea to make Alhaji Rabiu Kwankwaso a Minister.

Prior to the unveiling of Tinubu’s ministerial nominees, there were suggestions that Kwankwaso might get a position in Tinubu’s government, given the fraternity between the duo after the presidential election.

But Kwankwaso did not make the list of Tinubu’s ministerial nominees, while a former governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, got a slot.

According to Punch, Director of Publicity of the APC, Bala Ibrahim, said the reason for dropping the former presidential candidate is because of Kwankwaso’s persistent attacks on the legacies of the party’s National Chairman, Dr Abdullahi Ganduje.

The APC statement about Kwankwaso

“Kwankwaso is a force to reckon with in the politics of Kano. But the way and manner his Kwankwasiyya movement goes about conducting itself has made the support for Kwankwaso to wane gradually. This is because of the brigandage the movement is bringing into the politics of Kano, and by extension, Nigeria.

“The President must have felt the pulse of the public and weighed the relevance and implementation of his policies, particularly his effort to win the hearts of Kano people. There is no way you will dismiss the political maturity, sagacity and experience of Dr Abdullahi Ganduje when it comes to the way he plays politics in Kano.

“If you weigh the two on a good calibrated scale, the political weight of Ganduje is by far higher than that of Kwankwaso. I believe the President must have listened to people who will give him honest and sincere advice, people who read the political temperature of the state very well, not those who are misguided by the hullabaloo of commotion caused by the brigandage of the Kwankwasiyya movement. It is that direction I think the President took the decision not to treat Ganduje lightly.”
