A former governor of Kano state, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, has denied claims credited to his nephew that his supporters have been asked to join the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
His nephew, Musa Ilyasu Kwankwaso had told Daily Trust that the former governor had directed his supporters to leave the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the PDP.
However, in a statement on Thursday by his media aide, Binta Spikin, the governor said he is horrified by the report.
She said: “When did Musa Iliyasu become the spokesperson of Senator Kwankwaso that is worth the attention of a reputable paper like the Trust? This is not acceptable, by any standard.
“Trust should learn to source its stories. When it needs news from the Kwankwasiyya fold, it should contact its various members either through the formal or informal channels. We are ready to oblige you. This misrepresentation of fact, especially on Senator Kwankwaso has to stop.”
