About a week before Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State, knows his electoral fate in the re-run Governorship election, one of his top Aides has deserted him, to join the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, under the leadership of Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, in the State.
Ganduje’s Senior Special Assistant on Urban Beautification, Hashim Dungurawa, resigned his appointment, on Thursday.
He tendered his resignation letter to the Secretary to the Governor’s Office, Usman Alhaji, but did not state any reason for the resignation in the letter.
“I am writing this letter to formally inform you of my resignation from the Office of the SSA, voluntarily, and I thank you for the opportunity given me to serve under your Office, as SSA”, the Politician wrote.
Speaking to Journalists, on Thursday, Dungurawa told Journalists in Kano, that he is joining the PDP, adding that, even Mr. Ganduje was Kwankwaso’s disciple.
Recall, that the Kano State Governor was the Deputy to Kwankwaso, when the latter was Governor in the State.
The move comes as the Kano State Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Abdullahi Abbas, declared the forthcoming supplementary Governorship election in the State, as a “do or die” affair.
While speaking at his residence, to a crowd of APC supporters in Kano, on Wednesday, he called on the APC supporters to stand against any opposition that comes their way during the election. His words: “There is every possibility that you can be arrested. But let me tell you, before you get to the Police station, we will make sure you are released, and the Police that arrested you will likely lose his job.
“We are going to give you every protection that is required. This election is a matter of do or die for us. We must win this election”, Abbas said.
Recall, that Kano State is among the seven States where the Governorship election was declared inconclusive. Others are Plateau, Adamawa, Sokoto, Bauchi, and Rivers States.
