Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, has taken steps to stop Abdulmumin Jibrin, the Director General of Tinubu Support Group and former House of Representatives member from defecting from All Progressives Congress (APC).
This was contained in a statement issued by the Chairman of APC in Kano State, Abdullahi Abbas, on Sunday.
Jibrin had on Saturday announced his exit from the ruling APC, saying that he would announce his new political party within 24 hours.
But Abbas said Ganduje has directed the state secretariat of the APC to immediately take measures for the amicable resolution of the internal differences arising from interested parties seeking nomination to contest election into the Kiru/Bebeji Federal Constituency.
“To this end, the party secretariat has complied and summoned a stakeholder meeting to discuss the situation in the constituency.
“An invitation has been sent to all the aspiring candidates for the position.
“Abdulmumin Jibrin Kofa has already accepted the proposal and readiness to attend the meeting,” the statement added.
Abbas called on the parties to remain calm and cooperate with the party with a view to resolving the internal crisis, assuring that the meeting would come up with a position acceptable to all the aspirants.
