A faction of the People’s Democratic Party has suspended former Kano State Governor Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso over a crisis that erupted at the Northwest Zone Congress in Kaduna last week.
Kwankwaso’s suspension was contained in a letter of inquiry signed by her secretary HA Tsanyawa, a former central senator by the party.
The PDP in Cannes is divided with Senator Rabi Musa Kwankwas, who leads the faction, while former Foreign Minister Aminu Wali leads another group.
However, the Northwest Zone Congress of the PDP in the state of Kaduna ended in disaster last Saturday, because it was said that the thugs took the scene, destroying the ballot boxes, as well as tearing the ballots.
The letter of April 16, 2021, states that Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso was suspended on three counts: “leading his supporters to a shameful and embarrassing act of robbing the democratic process during the PDP of the Northwest Zone Convention of April 10, 2021.” .
“That you are also accused of abusing our two governors and the main stakeholders of the Northwest present during the convention.
“That your supporters destroyed the election material, according to your instructions and in your presence.”
It was said that a meeting of the Executive Council held on Thursday, April 15, 2021, unanimously decided to suspend Kwankwaso and his supporters for three months, in accordance with the provisions of Article 58 (1) of the PDP Constitution.
Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso must respond to the inquiry within 48 hours and state why the provisions of Article 59 (1) (2) (3) and (4) will not apply to him.
Efforts to reach Kwankwas proved unsuccessful at the time of submitting this report.
