Tinubu: You’re Distracting People From Your Failures With Emirship Tussle – APC Blasts Gov Yusuf

The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kano State, Abdullahi Abbas, has responded to the Chairman of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), Hashimu Dungurawa, over a comment about President Bola Tinubu’s failure to intervene in the state emirate tussle.

Naija News reported that Dungurawa, had told 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.

Reacting, Abbas in a statement on Monday in Abuja countered the NNPP chairman, saying APC is now more united, popular and would deliver triple of the votes it got in the last presidential election in Kano.

Abbas said Governor Abba Yusuf and the national leader of the NNPP, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, would be defeated in the 2027 election due to their approach to governance issues.

He added that while other state governors are commissioning projects to mark one year in office, Governor Yusuf is using the emirate tussle to distract people from his failure in office.

He said, “The crisis of confidence rocking the factionalised opposition NNPP and its embattled leader, Senator Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso, is embarrassingly exposing its dismal failure, even as it is boasting of clinching the nation’s presidency come 2027.

“We are using this medium to assure our able and capable President, including the party national leadership that Kano State APC is now more united, popular and is daily attracting politically valuable people into our fold. We are ready and will deliver more than triple of the votes we got in 2023 presidential election.

“Aside widely acknowledged poor performance of Governor Abba Yusuf-led NNPP government in Kano State in the last one year, the party’s penchant for causing and sponsoring crisis in a peaceful state he inherited and some of his anti-people’s policies are factors voters will consider in the next election.

“It is a public knowledge that while other state governors were commissioning one project or the other to mark their one year in office, the NNPP Kano State government was busy distracting the good people of Kano from his obvious failures through the contentious emirate law as a tactic from his inadequacies in office.”
