An aide of the governor of Kano state, Abdullahi Ganduje has resigned. Hashim Dungurawa, who is the senior special assistant on urban beautification to the governor resigned his appointment on Wednesday, March 13, 2019.
Dungurawa tendered his resignation to the secretary to the governor’s office, Usman Alhaji, but did not state any reason for the resignation in the letter. He wrote:
“I am writing this letter to formally inform you of my resignation from the office of the SSA Voluntarily, and I thank you for the opportunity given me to serve under your office as SSA”.
But Dungurawa would later inform journalists he was defecting to the camp of Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leader in Kano state.
The PDP governorship candidate in Kano, Abba Yusuf, was ahead of Governor Ganduje of the All Progressives Congress (APC) before last Saturday, March 9, 2019 election was declared inconclusive.
Yusuf was leading with about 26,000 votes which were less than the about 128,559 cancelled votes in the state.
A supplementary election will now hold in the affected polling units in Kano on March 23, 2019 same as in five other states.
On Thursday, March 14, 2019, while speaking to journalist in Kano, Dungurawa said that he is joining PDP, saying even Governor Ganduje was Senator Kwankwaso’s disciple.
You will recall that Governor Ganduje was the deputy to Senator Kwankwaso when the latter was Kano governor. They fell out after Governor Ganduje became the governor of Kano.
