The Kano State Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Haruna Umar Doguwa, has changed his mind about disciplinary actions against former Governor of the State and current Senator, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso.
Doguwa had earlier held that Mr. Kwankwaso should face disciplinary proceedings for allegedly maltreating the present Kano State Governor Abduallahi Umar Ganduje during a condolence visit.
However, he told reporters in Kano on Saturday, that he made his previous statements under pressure from Party leaders.
“I was coerced to sign [his previous public memorandum] under duress,” Doguwa said.
“Having reviewed the reaction of the earlier press statement, I and other officials of our Party deemed it necessary to take corrective measures to preserve unity, cohesiveness, and to jealously guard our hard earned victory Kano State,” he said.
“We have observed with great concern the reactions from our Party members, and indeed the general public, which turnout to be negative.”
