Recal that Ganduje had mocked Kwankwaso over his snub as the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), saying that President Bola Tinubu was smart enough to see through his desperation.
The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Ganduje has been lambasted by a member of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) for mocking Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso.
This followed a controversial comment by Ganduje mocking Kwankwaso over his snub as the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), saying that President Bola Tinubu was smart enough to see through his desperation.
Ganduje claimed Kwankwaso supported the contentious demolition of buildings approved by his administration in Kano under the guise of sanitising Kano’s master plan.
The former Kano governor, who spoke in Hausa, said this on Monday when he received some of his loyalists and party supporters from Kano State who paid him a courtesy visit at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja.
But in a chat with The Punch, the spokesperson for the NNPP Presidential Campaign Council, Ladipo Johnson, stated that Ganduje is merely seeking relevance.
Johnson said Kwankwaso is not going to waste his time on Ganduje because he is inconsequential and does not matter.
He said: “Does anyone really still listen to what Ganduje says? The fact that he is the APC national chairman doesn’t mean that he is a rational human being. That is all I have to say.
“We are not going to waste our time on somebody who is inconsequential, no matter what the APC thinks they are doing. It is as simple as that.”
