Joining PDP Will Be A Political Mistake, Governor Kwakwanso Tells Ribadu

Alhaji Rabiu Kwakwanso, the governor of Kano state has sent a warning to former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Malam Nuhu Ribadu advising him to refute overtures by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to join them as it will be a political blunder, saying in the end, Ribadu will be the biggest loser.

While speaking to newsmen in Kano on Thursday, August 14, 2014, governor Kwakwanso said Ribadu is well known as a man of integrity, adding that as EFCC chief he was on top of his job and joining the PDP will be tragic.
During the interview which was held at his office in the state capital, Kwakwanso noted that as EFCC chairman, Ribadu inidcted many PDP members for corruption and if he joins them, he will end up being haunted by the same individuals.
Thisday reports:
If he joins their party, which I believe he cannot make that mistake, but if he joins them, that means all what we are talking about him is wrong. In my opinion it will be a big political mistake.
Kwankwaso added: In my own opinion, it will be better for him to remain in the All Progressive Congress (APC) because people see him as man of his word not someone who is going to be desperate for power.
On the issue of the National Conference, the governor said: Any constitution other than 1999 Constitution, I dont think it will certainly help this country. We told our delegates to reject any new constitution apart from the 1999 Constitution.
People should come together to rescue the country. I know some people are trying to amend the constitution for single term of six years. It is unfortunate for them to use their agents and smuggle it.
Kwankwaso also commended the youths and people of Nasarawa State for their support for Governor Tanko Al-Makura and also lamented that those at the top are exploiting the weakness of the constitution.
He faulted a situation whereby the state House of Assembly can impeach a governor or speaker, saying it was bad for democracy.
Commenting on the 2015 elections, the governor said the APC would massively be voted for by the people of the country who are yearning for a change.
