A governorship aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kano State aspirant, Hon. Abdurrahman Kawu Sumaila, has said that he would only campaign for the presidential candidate of the party, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) in the February 14 elections.
Kawu’s position followed the nomination of Prof. Hafiz Abubakar as running mate to the party’s governorship candidate, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, a development that generated ripples in the Kano APC.
The aspirant had given the party an ultimatum, which expired on New Year Day, to reverse its decision to nominate Abubakar.
Addressing journalists yesterday in Kano, Kawu, who represents Takai/Sumaila Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, said he would stand on the “sideline” to watch how events would continue to unfold in the coming days.
“For now, I would remain an onlooker. However, we would do our best to see that General Buhari wins his election. The presidential candidate of the APC remains my candidate, and that is all”, he said.
Kawu put the blame for his woes in the APC at the doorstep of the state Governor, Engr. Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso, saying that he did not have any problem with any other stakeholder of the party in the state.
He, however, refused to state whether he would dump the APC for another party.
