Kwankwaso and Shekarau re-unite to tackle President Buhari in 2019

Two former governors of Kano state and erstwhile political opponents, Rabiu Kwankwaso and Ibrahim Shekarau, have reconciled and buried the hatchet towards the success of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, at the state and national level in 2019 elections.

This is the first formal meeting the duo held in 15 years when Mr. Kwankwaso paid a congratulatory visit to Mr. Shekarau for defeating him in the 2003 governorship election.

The brief meeting took place at Mr. Shekarau’s Asokoro residence on Saturday night.

Although the two Kano political giants held the meeting in closed-door, excited Mr. Shekarau was heard saying there was “no hard feelings, and I don’t bear any grudge”, at the end of the meeting.

In reply, Mr. Kwankwaso also said he did not bear malice against him, assuring him of his commitment and collaboration towards the success of the party.

Following Mr. Kwankwaso’s defection to PDP last week, the senator has been extending an olive branch to politicians in the PDP towards realigning the party structure at the state level.
