National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole has visited the former Governor of Kano State, Engr. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso.
Oshiomhole was accompanied by three APC Governors of Kebbi, Jigawa and Zamfara States.
The visit Friday night was aimed at pleading with Kwankwaso who is currently a Senator against dumping the party for the PDP.
Kwankwaso is believed to be nursing a presidential ambition in 2019 and is seriously been wooed by the PDP. Senator Kwankwaso had contested the presidential primary election of the APP in 2014 and had the second highest votes after Mr.Buhari who won the contest.
It is unclear if Senator Kwankwaso will give up on his presidential ambition and remain in the APC to support the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari.
It may interest you to know that Senator Kwankwaso has been having a long political battle with his former deputy now governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.
Oshiomhole had earlier met with Gov.Ortom of Benue State against defecting to PDP. However, after accepting to remain in the APC, Gov.Ortom appears to have changed his mind as he reiterated his resolve to dump the party on Friday.
