Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has dismissed recent calls by some aggrieved members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the sack of the National Chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, on account of alleged improprieties.
He noted that such calls were immaterial and unnecessary at this time, while insisting that the fundamental concern of party members was how to emerge victorious in the forthcoming general election.
Ganduje made the declaration during a state APC stakeholders meeting held at the Coronation Hall, Government House, Kano, late Friday night.
“When some people were saying our National Chairman should be sacked, we said no. That is not what we need now. We should concentrate on victory. We must understand that there is no time for crisis within our fold. All we need to do is to try as much as we can to manage whatever crisis we may have and collectively face the general election,” he advised.
He regretted that members of the political class lacked tolerance, which, he noted, was vital for political development.
“Tolerance should always be seen to be promoted within us. Partisanship without tolerance is both harmful and anti-progress,” the governor said.
