The New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) has lost some of its members and supporters as youths defected to the All Progressive Congress (APC), in Kano State, Tuesday.
The decampees were received by Alhaji Faizu Alfindiki the Chairman of Kano Municipal Local Government Area and Kano Central Coordinator, Gawuna/Garo 2023, said the defectors were from Zaitawa Ward.
He said “I dumped the Kwankwasiyya Movement long time ago because I realized the Movement is built on servitude and slavery,” stressing that the Kwankwasiyya ideology runs contrary to the tenets of democracy and good governance.
“We were with Kwankwasiyya for years. We rendered selfless services, under the rain and sunshine, yet we have nothing to show for our sacrifices,” he regretted.
According to him, APC under the leadership of Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has over the last seven years chatted a new course that are rewarding to Kano and the good people of the state.
The vibrant Municipal Council Chairman said “the evidence of first grade performance by Dr. Ganduje is overwhelming on the streets and in our homes as more individuals have been empowered.”
He, however, commended the defectors for taking the right decision by joining the winning train, and described the Gawuna/Garo 2023 team, projecting the governorship ambition of Kano State Deputy Governor, Dr. Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna, as unstoppable on the march to victory.
In a speech earlier, Hon. Muniru Ya’u Yakasai, who led other defectors to APC said they were moved by Alfindiki style of inclusive governance in the Municipal Council.
“As it stands today, Gawuna is the most qualified to lead Kano because of inherent ability to build on Ganduje’s legacy and take Kano to the next level.”
Recall that the NNPP lost Sen. Ibrahim Shekarau to the PDP.
