Kano - The internal crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kano is threatening its chances of victory in the coming general elections.
Alhassan Doguwa, the House of Representatives majority leader and member representing Tudun Wada/Doguwa Federal constituency, expressed the same fear on Wednesday, November 2, when he called on Governor Abdullahi Ganduje to take full charge of the APC in Kano, Vanguard reports.
Doguwa said this in his address to journalists to clear the air on insinuation of his alleged attack on the Kano APC's governorship running mate, Murtala Sule Garo, on Wednesday.

Proud members will ruin party - Doguwa
Moreover, the lawmaker noted that the performance of the party in Kano is further threatened by some persons around Ganduje whose loyalty and humility he does not trust.
He fears that if the governor leaves the affairs of the party in the hands of such persons, they will ruin it.
“The danger we have is we have some people around him (Ganduje), if care is not taken, if Ganduje does not take full charge of the party affairs, then the story of the APC in the forthcoming election could be very sad. We are facing unprecedented opposition. The challenge in Kano about the opposition is monumental.
“I want to use this opportunity to call on Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje to quickly take over the affairs of the party and handle our campaign programme directly. If the governor leaves the business of the party in hands of people who may not be humble, then at the end, they will kill the party.”
