Rabiu Kwankwaso has issued a statement explaining why he shunned the All Progressives Congress (APC) Convention.
According to Kwankwaso, the former APC chairman, John Oyegun did not accept the results of the ward and Local government elections which his loyalists held in Kano state.
He said “I wish to inform the leadership of the party and the general public that we had wanted to be part of the National Convention but regrettably all the congresses that we conducted at the wards, Local Government Councils and at the State level were not recognized by the outgoing National Executive Council of the party.
“Therefore, I felt that presenting ourselves at such an important event will not be in the overall interest of the entire convention that is assuming we are allowed access into the convention ground.
“Because there are high chances that our presence could create embarrassments and a lot of friction similar or even worse than what occurred in the pavilions of delegations from Imo and Delta States during yesterday’s convention. However, as the new EXCO settles to start the efforts of uniting the party we wish you the very best.”
Kwankwaso, in his statement, also congratulated the newly elected chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole.
