A former Governor of Kano State, Musa Kwankwaso on Monday confirmed his membership of the Peoples Democratic Party.
There had been speculations that kwankwaso has the intention of dumping the main opposition party for the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP).
He noted that even though he launched a political group; ‘The National Movement’ he has not left the PDP.
According to Kwankwaso, the political group has linked up with the NNPP ahead of the 2023 general elections.
Kwankwaso disclosed this in an interview with BBC.
He said, “As we speak, I am still in the PDP.
“We started the movement step by step. The first is to withdraw to the background, thinking some people within the party will want to hear our grievances, but the party didn’t do anything, we joined the group and still, nothing was done by the party, now we are at the level of a political party.
“Even as I speak with you, we are still between a group and a political party, and I have not left the PDP, but this group has linked up with the NNPP.”
While speaking on the political group, he noted that the group has big people, so he can’t take any decision alone.
Kwankwaso said, “The issue is not about Rabi’u Kwankwaso or Kwankwasiyya movement, it is about ‘The National Movement’ and we are many in it, and most of the people in the movement are big people, so I can’t take any decision alone.”
When asked about the reported dissolution of the NNPP leadership even before they joined, he said: “Actually the party is not ours, but they want us to be involved.
“That was why they want to bring their representatives and want us to do the same. And their tenure has lapsed and they have all stepped down, including the person that registered it more than 20 years ago.
“So, it is a fresh arrangement that they are making to involve all of us because in most states they don’t have anybody.”This article was originally published on Nigeria News
