The looming political crisis in Kano appeared to have no end in sight as Senator Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso yesterday vowed not to call off his planned visit to the state slated Tuesday.

This is even as Governor Abduallahi Umar Ganduje has vowed that the senator would not be allowed to return to the Senate in 2019.

Kwankwaso spoke through the former Secretary to Kano State Government, Dr Rabi’u Sulaiman Bichi, at a press conference in Kano, insisting that the planned visit to the state would go ahead as scheduled.

His stance came barely 24 hours after the Commissioner of Police in Kano State, Rabi’u Yusuf, advised him to shelve the visit for security reasons.

The police commissioner, at a press briefing on Friday, warned Kwankwaso to either put on hold the visit or be held liable for any security issues that may arise from it.

There has been palpable tension as the two factions of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state fixed their parallel political rallies to hold on the same day.

The state government also planned a political event to coincide with the day the former governor is expected in the state.

But Bichi accused the state government of plotting to scuttle Kwankwaso’s planned visit.

“It is a common knowledge in Kano that since November last year, news has been going round that Senator Kwankwaso had plans to come to Kano. However, the state government, through its officials, has vowed to stop him from visiting his consistency.”

The former SSG further alleged that three prominent politicians in the state were after Senator Kwankwaso, and accused the Commissioner of Police of taking sides.

He said the politicians are: the Commissioner of Rural Development, Alhaji Musa Iliyasu Kwankwaso and his Special Duties counterpart, Alhaji Abdullahi Abbas, as well as an APC stalwart, Alhaji Abdulmajid Danbalki, also known as Commander.
