•Kwankwassiyya leader, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso

Kano state Government has condemned in the strongest terms, the unsavory remarks against President Muhammadu Buhari and the National Leadership of the All Progressive Congress (APC) by the Kwankwasiyya Group.

The condemnation was contained in a press statement signed by the state Commissioner of Information, Malam Muhammad Garba, and made available to newsmen in Kano yesterday.

Kano state government was reacting to a recent press conference organised by Kwankwasiyya group, held at the Kano chapter of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ).

The statement alleged that members of the Kwankwassiyya group acted the script of their Abuja-based leader, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, whose plot to destabilise the APC in Kano state had been roundly defeated.

“It is also on record that Kwankwaso and his Kwankwasiyya group, consumed by the tall dream of becoming ‘President’ has unjustifiably maligned President Buhari at every giving opportunity.

“It is on this note that Kano State Government seriously frowns at statements credited to the strong member of Kwankwassiyya group, Aminu Abdulsalam who did not only maliciously accused President Buhari of fueling crisis in Kano APC, but also used derogatory words and attacked the personality and hard-earned integrity of Mr. President.

“Kano state Government strongly warns against such act of incivility by a person or group of persons against the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, the party’s leadership and other respected political office holders. Kano state Government, therefore, demands the Kwankwassiyya group to tender unreserved apology to President Buhari and APC national secretariat, without which the APC national leadership should invoke the party'’s constitution and take appropriate disciplinary measures against them for insubordination and engaging in anti-party activities,” said the statement.

The statement commended party faithful who exercised patience and remained calm all through the days the group was struggling to destabilise the party in the state through blackmail, cheap propaganda and misrepresentation of facts.

“It is, however, very unfortunate that members of Kwankwassiyya group are now deriding the APC national leadership which gave them ample opportunities to play the god and even at many occasions recognised their favored candidate, Umar Haruna Doguwa as the APC chairman in Kano State.

“Now that a new and authentic leadership has emerged through the instruments of the party’s constitution, it is expected that the Kwankwassiyya, if truly have concern to APC, should rally round the new leadership and display total loyalty to the party rather than blackmailing the party’s national leadership and President Muhammadu Buhari.
