National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has waded into the crisis rocking the Kano State chapter of the party.
Tinubu, who is a former governor of Lagos State, on Sunday invited ex-Kano state governor, Ibrahim Shekarau, to Lagos with a view to resolving the crisis.
The APC leader also invited Abdullahi Ganduje but the Kano State governor could not attend as he was outside the shores of the country, but he is expected to meet with Tinubu when he is back from the trip.
PlatinumPost reports that Shekarau has been leading a faction of the party ‘to rebel’ the APC executives in the state recognised by the national headquarters of the party, who are loyal to Governor Ganduje.
Ganduje is said to be a reliable ally of Tinubu and he has shown deep interest in the presidential bid of the APC National Leader.
Shekarau, who is leading a faction of the party not recognised by the national headquarters of APC, is meeting Tinubu a day after two sitting APC governors addressed Ahmadu Danzago, chairman of the Shekarau APC faction, as the party chairman in Kano, a move many believed was aimed at fueling the party’s crisis in the state.
While the details of the meeting between Tinubu and Shekarau are not available at the time of filing this report, it is believed that Tinubu would prevail on Shekarau to fully support Ganduje as the leader of APC in Kano.
