Abdullahi Ganduje, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), expressed his disapproval of Rabiu Kwankwaso, the presidential candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), by dubbing him a repetitive failure due to his personal aspirations.
Furthermore, Ganduje asserted that Kwankwaso would prefer to be a ruler in hell rather than a subordinate in paradise.
During a gathering with Haliru Jika, the NNPP’s gubernatorial candidate for Bauchi State in 2023, Ganduje accused Kwankwaso of deceiving the public and stated that the Kwankwasiyya group, led by the former governor of Kano State, had to endure an eight-year hiatus before regaining influence in Kano.
“The Kwankwasiyya head, who wears a red cap, is the person who prefers to be a king in hell than be a servant in paradise. He specialises in deceiving people.
“He was first in PDP and came back to APC, when it was formed. That was when the nPDP merged with the legacy parties to form the APC.
“Instead of staying in APC, because of his ambition, he decided to leave APC, after failing to pick the presidential ticket, to go back to the PDP. He could not stay there, again, when he failed to pick up the ticket.
“He is a professional contestant for presidential elections and would remain a professional failure. He loves himself so much. I am happy you have dumped the red cap. It is a very sensible action that you have taken.”
