By Odira Nwachukwu

A top ally of President Muhammadu Buhari, Abdulmajid Danbilki Kwamanda has emerged as a factional leader of the All Progressive Congress APC.

Abdulmajid, a former National Chairman of The Buhari Organization announced the split in Kano on Tuesday.

Announcing the split of the APC in Kano State, Kwamanda explained that the split has become inevitable due to the actions of Governor Abdulahi Ganduje the APC State caretaker Chairman Abdullahi Abbas and some other party leaders in the state.

He accused the governor and the caretaker committee chairman of blocking other interested persons from contesting positions in the state in favour of preferred candidates.

Kwamanda, therefore, announced a new APC Akida, splitting the party into two factions in Kano.

He said, “The actions of the Governor as well the party caretaker Chairman for vehemently blocking some party loyalists who wish to contest the state gubernatorial seat negates the principles of democratic norms and internal politicking”.


“We have already designed our movements and how we are going to ensure that our new APC Akida makes it to the Government House comes 2023”.

On his alleged suspension from the party by his Kano Municipal wards of Kofar Wambai for alleged anti-party activities, the new factional leader said he wasn’t given a fair hearing hence his suspension is null and void.

“I think those who say they suspended me are doing a hatchet job but they have since failed because right now as you can see we have splits the party with the emergence of our Akida factions we will see who is who,” he said.

On what may be the reaction of President Muhammadu Buhari to the steps he has taken so far, the politician said,
“Buhari does not control my political ideologies and he knows that whatever I’m doing is the right thing”.

The factional leader also declared the support of his faction for the gubernatorial ambition of Senator Barau Jibrin, stating that everything necessary will be done to ensure he clinches the governorship seat in 2023.
