The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Ganduje, says the presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Rabiu Kwankwaso, lobbied to be the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory in President Bola Tinubu’s cabinet.

Ganduje, in a viral video, said Kwankwaso supported the demolition of buildings in Kano to portray himself as a minister who will revive the master plan of Abuja.

The former governor of Kano State said this in a meeting with some of his loyalists and party supporters from the state at the APC secretariat in Abuja.

He stated that his predecessor was desperate to become FCT Minister but was denied the position by President Tinubu.

Ganduje added that the demolition of buildings approved by his administration was the only way Kwankwaso and Kano State Governor, Abba Yusuf, could express their frustration under the guise of sanitising Kano’s master plan.

The APC chairman said: “Is it not the FCT minister position that he wanted? That was why he demolished buildings in Kano under the guise that he wanted to defend the master plan. If you ask him what the master plan is, he can’t tell you.

“All you will hear is, ‘We will reset the Kano masterplan. We have promised Kano people that we will demolish houses even if they are 1,000-storey buildings’. Look, if an illiterate person does not know he is one, he is certainly blind. That is what befell him.”
