Former Governor of Kano State, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso has revealed why he boycotted the APC national convention held on Saturday and Sunday in Abuja.

Mr. Kwankwaso, in a statement sent to News Express, said he and his supporters intended to attend the convention but did not due to the party's National Executive Council's refusal to recognise the congresses that favoured his loyalists at the state, local government and wards in Kano.

"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.

"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." 

The former governor further felicitated with the newly elected Chairman Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and his newly elected members of the Executive Council.
