Kano Emirate tussle: Tinubu’s non-response to Kano Emirate crisis will have consequences – NNPP

As the Kano Emirate tussle continues, Hashimu Dungurawa, the Chairman of the Kano State chapter of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), has said that President Bola Tinubu’s passive stand in the ongoing crisis will work against him at the next general election.

Dungurawa stated this while addressing newsmen at the Party’s Luggard house Secretariat, saying his Yoruba affiliation and roots are responsible for the 15th Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado Bayero’s refusal to vacate his seat.

Dungurawa said people of the state didn’t vote for Tinubu and the passive stand is making him lose more ground.

According to him, “Because of the inclination they (Bayero) are having with the Yoruba. As you know, his grandmother came from Yoruba land. They want to bring …agenda here. The rest have agreed to depart their houses but because of his relationship with Tinubu. He was saying as his brother is the head of state, he can not move out. That is why. All these things they are doing, we are just looking and watching them.

“We are appealing to Tinubu, maybe now, he is supporting his brother being a partially Yoruba man but when election comes, they are few in number here, they cannot make any difference here for him. So if I were him, I will develop sense of maturity being the head of state to carry everybody along so that, i will have easy crossing and stay.

“But what he is doing, he is adding salt to the wound because Kano people previously are not with him and didn’t vote for him. And now, he is bring more unpopularity for himself,” Dungurawa said.

On the state of the nation, the party Chairman said as an opposition party, they were not happy with the way things are gradually getting out of hand as Nigerians are living a difficult life.

He advised the President to invite technocrats or experts to join his team to fix the country.

Dungurawa maintained that the party will still field the Leader of the Party, Dr Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso for the Presidential Candidature in 2027, assuring that Kwankwaso would be the next President of Nigeria.

He said the former governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje won the 2019 election in the state through the judges not people’s mandate while describing the eight years of Ganduje as government run by himself and family members.

Dungurawa however scored the Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf led government high saying it has recorded tremendous achievements in the areas of education, health and agriculture among others
