The All Progressives Congress (APC) has urged Nigerians to discountenance the allegation by a chieftain of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), Buba Galadima, that the national chairman of APC, Abdullahi Ganduje, harbours hatred for the people of Kano State.

Senior Special Assistant to the APC national chairman on Public Enlightenment, Chief Oliver Okpala, in a statement, said Galadima’s comments on a television programme was a wrong narrative and interpretation of Dr. Ganduje’s stance as far as Kano politics is concerned.

He accused Galadima of always being controversial, while advising him to be a statesman preaching for peace, love and unity to reign in the country’s political space.

Okpala said Galadima was trying to create bad blood between Ganduje and the people of Kano, as well as the leadership of the NNPP.

He said: “What Dr. Ganduje said in Kano to his teeming supporters and lovers was very simple. Ganduje, who spoke in Hausa language, reminded them of the need to be loyal, law abiding and supportive of their party, irrespective of the outcome of the Supreme Court judgement, stressing his commitment as the National Chairman of the APC to lead the party with peace, love, decorum and dignity.

“One, therefore, wonders if Galadima’s interpretation of what Ganduje said in Hausa was from Greek language which has no similarity with Hausa language or mere mischief.

“Galadima should now be acting and speaking like a father and as an elder statesman, so that the younger generation would look at him as a center point for political wisdom. He should learn from Ganduje who speaks with great wisdom, dignity and love for the county.

“Galadima should be reminded that the people of Kano State love and cherish Ganduje as a political leading light, and no amount of blackmail against him can change this.

“It is time for our elder statesmen to embrace the path of political rectitude so that they can bequeath to the younger generation, a clean political space garnished with peace, love and unity.”
