A staunch supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari in Kano, Alhaji Abdulmajid Danbilki Kwamanda has created new APC Akida, splitting the Party into two factions in Kano.
Kwamanda, who has been championing the President Buhari’s ideologies since 2003 when Buhari contested for the Presidency under the defunct APP, said Governor Abdullahi Ganduje and the APC state caretaker Chairman, Abdullahi Abbas should be held responsible for the crack in the party.
Danbilki, who, made the disclosure while addressing a news conference in Kano on Tuesday, said the meeting for the splitting of the party commenced on Monday, May 31.
He said, “The actions of the Governor as well the party caretaker Chairman for vehemently blocking some party loyalists who wishes to contest the State Gubernatorial seat has clearly negate the principles of democratic norms and internal politicking”.
“We have already designed our movements and how we are going to ensure that our new APC Akida makes it to the Government House in 2023”.
He said the decision to split the party into two, one for principled politicians and the other for hungry politicians, was born out of effort to ensure that Governor Abdullahi Ganduje does not impose candidates on the people of the state ahead of 2023.
“We are creating APC Akida and we have the backing and support of Kano people 100 percent. Even President Muhammadu Buhari cannot stop us from splitting the party for now,” he said.
According to him, the new faction, APC Akida, would resist any attempt by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje and the caretaker chairman of the APC in the state, Alhaji Abdullahi Abbas to impose their candidates on the people of the state in 2023.
Danbilki, who was said to be suspended from the party Kano Municipal wards of Kofar Wambai for alleged anti party activities, denied knowledge of the suspension, insisting that what they did was null and void.
He said one could not be suspended or sacked from a party without giving fair hearing and or even contacting him to hear his own version of the story.
“I think those who said they suspended me are doing a hatchet job but they have since failed because right now as you can see we have split the party with the emergence of our Akida faction we will see who is who”.
On whether President Muhammadu Buhari will not be happy with the splitting of the APC in Kano, Danbilki said, “Buhari does not control my political ideologies and he knows that whatever I’m doing is the right thing”.
He said their Gubernatorial hopeful Senator Barau Jibrin will contest the State Gubernatorial seat and they will ensure that he emerges victorious wether Governor Ganduje and his cohorts like it or not.
Effot to contact the State acting APC Chairman, Abdullahi Abbas and or any Government official failed as their mobile phones were not going through.
