Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has denied a media report which stated that it ‘grilled’ Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, a former Governor of Kano State.
In the said report, ThisDay alleged that the purported meeting with the National Working Committee (NWC) provided Senator Kwankwaso the opportunity to explain his point of view on the alleged crisis between him and the Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje.
Bolaji Abdullahi, National Publicity Secretary of the ruling party, said in a statement issued on Friday that the report is not true.
“While it was correct that Senator Kwankwaso visited our party’s national secretariat in Abuja, this was a private visit to the National Chairman, Chief Odigie Oyegun and not a meeting of the NWC. The NWC has not held any meeting this year and so the issue of ‘grilling’ Senator Kwankwaso does not arise.
“It is not unusual for our party men and women to visit the National Chairman and indeed other officials of the NWC. This should not be considered as a meeting of the NWC.
“Finally, we urge reporters to be more circumspect and to crosscheck facts if they have any doubt with the Publicity Department,” Abdullahi advised.
