New Nigeria Peoples Party’s (NNPP) presidential candidate, Rabiu Kwankwaso, has set up a four-man committee to reunite with Alhasan Doguwa, majority leader of the House of Representatives.
This is contained in a statement signed by Sanusi Bature, spokesperson for the NNPP’s gubernatorial candidate in Kano.
It was gathered that Doguwa, representing Tudunwada and Doguwa federal constituency of Kano on the platform of APC, is not on good terms with his party.
The statement said the chairman of the party and former Speaker, Kano State House of Assembly Kabiru Rurum, announced the committee’s formation.
It said Mr Kwankwaso constituted the committee, led by Rufai Hanga, to visit Mr Doguwa, with Mr Rurum as the party’s state chairman.
Other members of the committee for the task are Umar Doguwa and Sarki Daneji, according to the statement.
“Politics is (a) game of numbers. We are open for reconciliation and reunion with our old friends and associates in our quest to achieve a new Nigeria. At some point, most of us were in different parties against Dr Kwankwaso, but after realising his political sagacity, we reunited with him in the NNPP,” Mr Rurum revealed.
He, however, said they were more comfortable with the reunion than ever, assuring that Rep Doguwa would have a warm reception at the party.
“I assure all that the house leader will have a warm reception back to the Kwankwasiyya Political Movement and the NNPP because he was once a member of its kitchen cabinet,” Mr Rurum said.
Mr Rurum further revealed that they would pay the visit to Mr Doguwa to fulfil the conditions of reuniting with him, describing him as a “big fish” in the party’s net.
“In politics, there is no permanent friend nor permanent enemy, but what we want is to promote friendship, not enmity,” he explained.
The political crisis pervading the APC in Kano has given space for the NNPP to seek a reunion with Mr Doguwa, believed to wield enormous political influence at the grassroots.
