PDP taking me for granted, Kwankwaso says

On why he is planning to leave the opposition party, Kwankwaso lamented that some power brokers in the PDP are taking him for granted and turning his strength into a weakness.

The former governor claimed that he was sidelined during the last congress in the northwest where, according to him, the task of choosing the nominee for the vice-chairmanship role was given to someone else.

“Ideally, I should be one of the most important individuals in a party like PDP.
“For many obvious reasons and from what we see, it’s like many people are turning my strength into weakness and that cannot be acceptable.

Just like it was done in Katsina, (Former Governor Ibrahim) Shema nominated what was allocated to him, in Kaduna (Former Governor Ahmed) Makarfi did that, in Jigawa (Former Governor) Sule Lamido did that, in Kebbi Kabiru Turaki did that, in Sokoto (Governor Aminu) Tambuwal did that."
