APC Spokesman, Bala Ibrahim Reveals Why Kwankwaso Didn’t Make President Tinubu’s Ministerial List

The Director of Publicity of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bala Ibrahim, has given possible reasons why the presidential candidate of the New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP), Rabiu Kwankwaso, didn’t make President Bola Tinubu’s ministerial list.

Recall that before the president unveiled his ministerial nominees, speculations were that the former Kano State governor would earn a position in Tinubu’s cabinet because of the frequent ‘romance’ between the duo then.

However, the APC scribe has revealed possible reasons why Kwankwaso didn’t earn a position in Tinubu’s cabinet.

Ibrahim, while speaking to The Punch on Sunday, said Kwankwaso’s persistent attacks on the legacy of the party’s National Chairman, Dr Abdullahi Ganduje, in Kano State, may have caused him a slot in Tinubu’s cabinet.

Naija News understands that the APC chieftain explained that he believed the constant attacks on Ganduje’s legacies in Kano State by Governor Abba Yusuf of the NNPP and Kwankwaso’s political godson was why Tinubu decided against giving Kwankwaso a ministerial position.

Ibrahim said, “Kwankwaso is a force to reckon with in the politics of Kano. But the way and manner his Kwankwasiyya movement conducts itself has made the support for Kwankwaso to wane gradually. This is because of the brigandage the movement is bringing into the politics of Kano and by extension, Nigeria.

“The President must have felt the pulse of the public and weighed the relevance and implementation of his policies, particularly his effort to win the hearts of Kano people. There is no way you will dismiss the political maturity, sagacity, and experience of Dr. Abdullahi Ganduje when it comes to the way he plays politics in Kano.

“If you weigh the two on a good calibrated scale, the political weight of Ganduje is by far higher than that of Kwankwaso. I believe the President must have listened to people who will give him honest and sincere advice, people who read the political temperature of the state very well, not those who are misguided by the hullabaloo of commotion caused by the brigandage of the Kwankwasiyya movement. It is that direction I think the President took the decision not to treat Ganduje lightly.”

Reacting to the development, NNPP National Publicity Secretary, Major Agbo, told the platform that the APC didn’t deserve any response.

He, however knocked the ruling party for for trying to taint his principal.

Agbo said, “Some of these issues are things the party is not supposed to be reacting to now. He (Kwankwaso) has spoken directly on the issue you talked about. He is the one who opted out. What else do you want?

“If Ganduje is saying what he is saying and wants to continue to be behaving like a garrison commander, it is his business, not ours.”
