We’ll Resist Federal Government Interference in Kano Affairs – Kwankwaso


Senator Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso, former governor of Kano State and leader of the Kwankwasiyya Movement, has issued a stern warning against any attempt to impose a state of emergency in Kano State, vowing strong resistance to what he perceives as federal government interference.

At a flag-off ceremony for the construction of 82 kilometers of rural road networks in Madobi, his hometown, Senator Kwankwaso expressed concern over the alleged involvement of federal security agencies in supporting the deposed Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero.

He accused these actions of compromising the security situation in Kano.

“We will resist any attempt to undermine the constituted authority in Kano State,” Senator Kwankwaso asserted, emphasizing the support he commands among the people of Kano.

“We have mass followership because people believe in us, and we are committed to serving them wherever they voted for us.”

He condemned alleged political maneuvers aimed at destabilising Kano ahead of the 2027 elections.

“There are desperate politicians seeking to disrupt our peace, but we will stand firm against any form of victimization,” Kwankwaso declared.

Regarding the federal government’s alleged response to advice from certain Kano-based politicians, Kwankwaso criticized what he described as unpatriotic influence leading to potential failures.

He stressed the readiness of Kano citizens to defend their constitutional rights against intimidation or harassment.

“We are open to dialogue and reconciliation, but we will not tolerate any form of political bullying,” Kwankwaso affirmed.

“As seasoned politicians, we know how to navigate challenges and safeguard our interests.”
