Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano State has brokered peace in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), following a crisis that has recently rocked the party in the state.
It could be recalled that crisis last week broke out between the Majority Leader and member representing Doguwa/Tudunwada Federal Constituency, Alhassan Ado Doguwa and the deputy gubernatorial candidate of APC, Murtala Sule Garo.
Doguwa was accused of throwing a tea cup at Garo during a stakeholders meeting at the residence of the state’s Deputy Governor, Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna, reportedly injuring the former Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs.
The Majority Leader however denied the allegations and vowed to continue fighting Garo to the end.
However, Doguwa, on Monday confirmed the reconciliation to newsmen in Kano.
He said the reconciliation was spearheaded by Ganduje, who summoned the two warring parties in a meeting with some party’s leaders in Kano.
“His Excellency, Governor Abdullahi Ganduje, has reconciled between me and Murtala Sule Garo.
“He summoned the reconciliatory meeting between us. The meeting was attended by Nasiru Aliko Koki and the state APC Chairman, Abdullahi Abbas. The meeting started since around 11pm up to 4am of today (Monday).
“We reviewed the crisis and apologized to each other. The governor told us kind words. He showed each of us where we are wrong. He gave us fatherly advices and said he considers us as his two sons,” Doguwa revealed.
The Majority Leader, therefore declared that he had put the matter behind him and forged ahead to continue commitment towards the success of APC in Kano and the country.
“The matter is over to me. I will continue my support to the success of APC in 2023. I will continue to support Gawuna/Garo, Tinubu/Shettima and APC at all level in 2023,” he declared.
Doguwa also said he had forgiven Garo and all other party members that offended him, calling on them to forgive him too.
He also asked for forgiveness from Kano people and supporters of APC in Kano for causing disaffection in the party.
