“Anyone who cannot pay back the good things that were done to him for many years, because he himself (Ganduje) has mentioned it that we did this and that to him. And a lot of people have heard that.
“But the time he got to power, he couldn’t do one single favour to Kwankwaso and Kwankwasiyya followers. So how do you expect peace to be there? I know it was coming, it’s just a matter of time."
Speaking on whether they would still meet in the same political camp, Kwankwaso said he would not be surprised because if God destined it to happen it will still happen, adding that if not they would move on and thank Almighty God.
He explained that he had been silent in the PDP because of injustice done in electing leaders in the Kaduna chapter of the party.
The former governor said after they conducted the elections, some of the selfish leaders decided to create problems for Kano leadership, which he said, had been resolved.
He, however, said he remained a member of the PDP.
