NGF Crisis: Amaechi Cannot Withdraw Without Our Approval, Says Kwankwaso

Published

Rabiu KwankwasoDr Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso of Kano State has vowed that the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) leadership will not bow to the pressure from President Goodluck Jonathan and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to dump the authentic winner of the chairmanship election, Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers.

Kwankwaso, who spoke with Journalists at the Kano Governor’s Lodge in Abuja, said the ‘G-19’ voted for Amaechi after obtaining a commitment from him that he would not give up under any circumstance.

“This party belongs to all of us, it does not belong to the governors; it doesn’t belong to president or to the party chairman; it doesn’t belong to anybody…

“We have invested so much in this party, I don’t think any governor is thinking of leaving this party but if you are suspended, dismissed or expelled, of course there are no options.

“That is why we are saying, and I can assure you, all the governors who voted for Amaechi consider this suspension as suspension to all of us; not to Amaechi, not to governor of Sokoto. We are even surprised it started from there. I think there are bigger fish than Amaechi and governor of Sokoto. Many of us are disappointed that it started from there,” he said.

He added further that “now, I can tell you, Amaechi cannot withdraw without our approval. Anybody who is saying Amaechi should withdraw is wasting his time, because that is not in the agreement between us and Amaechi. We gave only two tasks to Amaechi and he did well.”

The Kano governor warned the PDP leadership against unwarranted recourse to suspension or dismissal of governors, saying it could leave them no choice but to dump the party and see to its end.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has blasted President Muhammadu Buhari over his nationwide broadcast over the ongoing #EndSARS protest rocking the country.

Recall that Buhari in his speech called for an end to the protest, adding that his government had already accepted and started implementing demands of the protesters.

He, however, failed to acknowledge the shooting of protesters by soldiers of the Nigerian Army at the Lekki Toll Gate on Tuesday night.
