KWANKWASO BOWS TO PRESSURE

KWANKWASO BOWS TO PRESSURE
Former governor of Kano State, Senator Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso, has called off his constituency visit, following
pressure from well-meaning Nigerians.
Former secretary to the state government, Rabiu Suleiman Bichi, disclosed this to newsmen at Lugard Hall, headquarters of Kwankwasiyya Movement in Kano, yesterday.  
He said the visit has been suspended indefinitely.
“In view of the above and after lengthy consultation with well-meaning Nigerians, home and abroad, we painfully have decided to shelve the schedule visit at the moment,” said Bichi.
Bichi said since 2015 when Kwankwaso handed over to Ganduje, the senator had not visited the state, except for a few hours when the governor lost his mother.
He said this was to give the new government the chance to perform.
“Considering the fact that the government of Ganduje has fully prepared to wage a war on the visit, Kwankwaso has decided to call it off, due to the concern of Kwankwaso for his people whom he cherished and will not want to spill their blood unnecessarily.”
He said the group would inform followers of any future schedule for the visit and urged them to be law-abiding and “shun anything that may be said” against them.
Before that decision,  however, in the early hours of Monday, the Presidency had summoned Kwankwaso and Governor Abdullahi Ganduje to the Presidential Villa, for a meeting, in a bid to avert breakdown of law and order in the state.
The governor, accompanied by two serving senators and two members of the House of Representatives from the state, met with the Chief of Staff to the President, Mallam Abba Kyari.
Ganduje, however, declined to speak to State House Correspondents after the closed-door meeting.

Kwankwaso also met with Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, also at the presidential villa, over the matter.
Last week, Kano State Police Command advised Kwankwaso against visiting the visit, due to the tension it had generated which may lead to breakdown of law and order.

Police Commissioner, Rabiu Yusuf, had, on January 27, advised Kwankwaso to shelve the visit as security report indicated that the controversial visit might lead to political unrest.
 Yusuf also warned that the law would be allowed to take its full course in the event that the visit resulted in any violent clash in the state.
