Yusuf Sulaiman, a former member of the Kano State House of Assembly (2011-2023), has asserted that the selection of former Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, as the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has caused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to become anxious about regaining power in the near future.
Sulaiman made these remarks during an interaction with journalists in Kano on Tuesday.
He suggested that the responses from the PDP and other adversaries of Ganduje regarding his new role as APC National Chairman reflect intense apprehension and discomfort among those who do not have the best interests of the party at heart.
“It is intriguing that our opponents are attempting to advise us on who should lead our party. This clearly demonstrates that Ganduje’s appointment could not have occurred at a more opportune time,” Sulaiman stated.
He continued, “As for the individuals who are largely backed by funding and have committed themselves to defaming Ganduje, this is merely the start of their distress because he is determined to guide the APC in establishing a stable government and implementing a just political reward system. This includes securing victories in upcoming elections in Bayelsa, Kogi, and Imo, as well as the triumphant return of Edo to the APC.”
Regarding allegations of their party’s defeat in Kano, Sulaiman remarked that the PDP has become a mere shadow of its former self and is not in a position to challenge the APC’s dominance in Kano.
He added, “Given the PDP’s performance in both rounds of elections in 2023 in Kano, I would advise them to discuss the election results with parties like the LP, PRP, and similar smaller groups.”
