A former governor of Kano state has given reasons why he did not attend the national convention of the All progressives Congress (APC).
Kwankwaso while congratulating the newly elected chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole and other members of the executive council said his group appreciate the efforts of the council.
Highlighting his reasons for not attending the national convention, Kwankwaso in a statement said he regrets that all the congresses conducted were not recognised by the party.
Below are the reasons as listed by Kwankwaso:
I wish to inform the leadership of the party and the general public that we had wanted to be part of the National Convention but regrettably all the congresses that we conducted at the wards, Local Government Councils and at the State level were not recognized by the outgoing National Executive Council of the party," Kwankwaso said.
Therefore, I felt that presenting ourselves at such an important event will not be in the overall interest of the entire convention that is assuming we are allowed access into the convention ground.
Because there are high chances that our presence could create embarrassments and a lot of friction similar or even worse than what occurred in the pavilions of delegations from Imo and Delta States during yesterday’s convention.
However, as the new EXCO settles to start the efforts of uniting the party we wish you the very best." he said.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously reported that three members of the APC died in an auto crash in Zaria.
