Ganduje vs Kwankwaso: Senator Ojudu speaks on reconciliation efforts


A former lawmaker and Southwest leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Babafemi Ojudu, has revealed that Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo is making progress in his efforts to reconcile warring parties in the Kano State chapter of the party.

He said Osinbajo led a delegate to reconcile the governor of the State, Umar Ganduje and his predecessor, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso.

The political leaders, who are both members of the ruling APC, and their supporters, have been in a heated political face-off.

Osinbajo and Senator Ojudu had earlier led the delegate to Kwankwaso last week and followed it up with a visit to Ganduje last night with the purpose of reconciling the two political gladiators.

Ojudu, who spoke with reporters regarding the meetings, said progress was being made towards ending the crisis.

Ojudu said, “Last night Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, led a team of myself, Hon Adamu Farouk to engage Governor Ganduje of Kano on the need for unity and peace in our party in Kano State.

“We made substantial progress just as we did earlier in the week when we met former Governor Kwakwanso.

“Insha Allah all will be well very soon and we shall once again have one big APC family in the ancient and progressive city.”
