Revocation, Demolition Of My Houses Can’t Sway Me From Dumping PDP – Kwankwaso

Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso
Governor Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso of Kano State, yesterday, declared that the revocation of his land allocation by the Federal Capital Territory Minister will not change his decision to dump the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Although the governor has not yet declared for APC, he has nonetheless made it clear that he does not care if his house at Maitama is demolished.
The governor made his position public at the special dinner organised by the Progressive Governors’ Forum in Abuja, Wednesday.
Kwankwanso, who was represented by his Special Adviser on Sports, Ahmed Gombe, said that the marked house and the extension, which is the subject of controversy, were duly approved by the FCT Minister.
The governor said, however, that he would not lose sleep if the houses were brought down on account of his current political disposition.

He said: “The marking of the said houses for demolition does not change the determination of His Excellency to face his political decision with courage and determination. If that is the price for him to pay, so be it.”
At the occasion, APC chieftain and former Lagos State Governor, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, described the seven Peoples Democratic Party governors, who have threatened to pull out of the party, as APC’s beautiful brides.
Tinubu said that APC was ready to admit and work with the seven PDP governors and those that were yet to ditch the ruling party for APC.
The APC leader challenged Nigerians to come out of their shell and face the current high level of impunity being visited on the polity by those in authority, saying that freedom is often fought for and not given on a platter.
Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State, who described the birth of APC as a watershed in the nation’s political landscape, also predicted that the party would make the required impact in the country after winning the 2015 presidency.
Fashola said: “I stand here tonight to proclaim that APC represents a new beginning for Nigeria. Although the nation is at crossroads, I plead with all Nigerians to unite and work with APC to bring about a new nation, where our collective interest, peace and unity would be attained.”
Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State, who also spoke at the event, decried the high level of poverty, criminality, diseases and corruption, which have combined to weaken the nation and its people, despite high revenues accruing from oil wealth.
At the ceremony, Senator Chris Ngige, was formally presented as Anambra State APC’s governorship candidate for the November 16 election.
Imo State Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, who described himself as an unrepentant APC member, said the party was the best legacy bequeathed to the current generation of Nigerians and predicted that it would change everything in the country.
