Kwankwaso denies decamping to PDP


Ex-Kano State governor, Dr Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, has denied media reports that he has dumped the All Progressive Congress for Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Rather, Kwankwaso, who is at loggerheads with his predecessor, Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, in a statement released by his aide, Rabiu Suleiman, accused Ganduje and former vice president, Atiku Abubakar of conniving with Ahmed Makarfi-led PDP to dislodge President Muhammadu Buhari come 2019.
