Ganduje arrives Abuja, seeks removal of Kano CP


The Kano state governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has allegedly arrived Abuja, Nigeria’s Federal Capital City to press for the removal of the Kano state commissioner of police, Mohammed Wakili following the tussle between the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the seat of the governor in the state’s election.

According to the report, sources close to the governor’s entourage to Abuja, includes the speaker of Kano House of Assembly, Kabiru Rurum; the state chairman of APC, Abdullahi Abbas and the governor’s top political strategist, Nasiru Aliko-Koki. The source who has pleaded anonymity said the visit was targeted at lobbying the party’s national chairman, the national leader of APC Bola Tinubu and some other influential presidency officials.

The Kano state police under the leadership of Wakili have been said to have maintained some level of neutrality before, during and after the election, which saw the opposition party’s candidate Abba Yusuf leading with 1,020,465 votes, against Governor Ganduje who scored 987,459 votes.
