Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso's convoy was attacked by thugs in Kano state on Tuesday, March 17.
According to The Nation, three vehicles in the former governor's convoy were destroyed during the incident, which took place close to a three-star hotel in the city.
The attack happened shortly after Kwankwaso was conferred with the chairman of Kano state PDP ward congress.
Abba Kabir Yusuf, 2019 PDP gubernatorial candidate in Kano, in a statement by his spokesperson, Ibrahim Adam, said that Kwankwaso was able to escape from the attack unhurt.
Adam said: “While leaving the hotel, some hired thugs attacked the convoy of Sen. Kwankwaso and destroyed 3 cars belonging to some of our House of Assembly members. But, Alhamdulillah, congress was successful. They couldn’t achieve what they want to achieve.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that Kwankwaso prophesied that Governor Abdullahi Ganduje and his allies will regret at the end of their second tenure. The former Kano state governor and former senator representing Kano central senatorial district said this during a radio programme in the state.
He also claimed that Ganduje's administration is being run on deception and falsehood. He said this will make the governor regret at the end of his tenure.
In a related development, Governor Ganduje on Thursday, January 23, said that his predecessor, Kwankwaso is making moves to return to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Speaking in Kano while receiving the newly defected chairman of the PDP in the state, Sulaiman Bichi, said Kwankwaso wants to return to APC to contest for presidency in 2023. Ganduje said he (the governor) has identified Kwankwaso’s most pressing ambition as contesting for Nigeria's presidency.
Similarly, Kwankwaso is a self-centered politician, Ganduje has declared. According to the Kano state governor, Kwankwaso is a political ingrate with a terrible 2023 ambition.
Ganduje disclosed this when he welcomed Dr. Rabi’u Suleiman Bichi into the All Progressives Congress. Bichi who decamped from the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) came with his thousands of followers.
