Alhassan Ado-Doguwa, majority leader in the House of Representatives, says Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), may lose Kano state in the forthcoming elections.
According to Ado-Doguwa, the internal crisis rocking the APC in Kano may result in the party losing the majority of the votes from Kano states.
Addressing a press conference in Abuja on Friday, the lawmaker accused Governor Umar Ganduje of handing over the party structure to certain individuals who were unqualified for the job.
“I want to say today without any fear of contraction; without any fear of intimidation; without any fear of any quarter or any authority anywhere that there is fire on the mountain as far as the APC is concerned in Kano State,” he announced.
“There is fire on the mountain – I repeat, there is fire on the mountain.” This is the right time to say it because we have been going through a silent crisis, especially in the area of party administration and politicking with a lot of intrigue and exclusion of members.
“Management and administration of the party are being done exclusively by a few members of the party who are, by all standing, not supposed to handle what they are handling in the APC.” “I want to say, for the purpose of clarification, that I am talking about party politics in Kano; in our party, the APC,” he declared.
There are over six million registered voters in Kano State.
