The former Governor of Kano State, Rabiu Kwankwaso, on Monday paid a visit to the Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, in Ado Ekiti.
Kwankwaso called for a peaceful and credible on the coming Ekiti governorship election on July 14.
He also lamented the failure of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration, to curtail the incessant killings in Plateau and other states of the country.
Kwankwaso, who is a part of the aggrieved nPDP, also used his visit to meet with the Hausa/Fulani community in Ekiti State, to urge them to live in peace with their host communities.
“Elections should not be seen as a war, but that the votes of the people must be made to count.
“The spate of killings in some parts of the country is frightening. It is the responsibility of the government to secure the lives and properties of the citizens through the right security arrangements,” he said.
When asked by reporters whether he was on his way back to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Kwankwaso said his “next line of action” would be determined by the collective agreement of members of the nPDP.
It should be recalled the the former governor had snubbed the national convention of the All Progressives Congress, APC and instead paid a visit to Atiku who is gunning for the PDP presidential ticket for the 2019 presidential election.
Fillers from all angles are pointing to a crack within the APC as aggrieved members feel marginalized and harassed by some faction within the APC. Kwankwaso is a senator under the APC political.
Asked whether he would defect to the Peoples Democratic Party, the former Minister of Defence said whatever was collectively agreed upon by members of the New PDP would inform his next line of action.
The nPDP had suspended its planned decision to defect from the APC but heeded the plea and imploration of state governors and other party leaders to seek alternative means of resolving the misunderstanding.
