Former governor of Kano State, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso has debunked any rumours of a reconciliation with the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
He cited the failure of the APC in its campaign promises to Nigerians, including the promise that petrol will sell at N45 per litre, would not fulfil any fresh promise arising from negotiations.
“It’s a bit late. The party has had its so-called convention, it has deviated from the original intentions why it was brought to being. So, there is nothing that remains with the mainstream APC”, Kwankwaso’s spokesman, Hajia Binta Spikin told reporters.
“I don’t know about the promises Comrade Oshiomhole keep making. He keeps promising he will do this, he would do that, but it’s just promises like the promises the APC gave in the run-up to the 2015 general election.
“Remember APC promised that petrol would be sold at N45 per litre; it has not fulfilled those promises, so what makes this promise different from all the other promises,” he said.
Similarly, National Publicity Secretary of the R-APC, Prince Kassim Afegbua, restated the determination of the group to carry on.
He also insisted that the national convention of the APC was constitutionally flawed.
“That convention has a constitutional flaw, so they are the ones that should be coming to us for peace,” he said.
