Kwankwaso promised Shekarau 35% if NNPP wins Kano but later changed it to 5%- Dr Sule Yau Sule
Dr Sule Yau Sule, the media aide of former Governor of Kano State, Senator Ibrahim Shekarau has revealed details of the agreement his principal had with the presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso which was not implemented.
Recall that Shekarau recently dumped the NNPP for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as result of failure to implement an agreement they had. However not much is known about the details of the agreement.
Shedding more light about what was agreed between the two former Kano Governors before Shekarau joined the NNPP on Trust TV, Shekarau’s media aide said,
“When he (Kwankwaso) came, he said I’m ready to give you 35%. You know Kano has 24 members of the House of Reps, 40 members of the state assembly. He said I’m ready to give you 35% of each. When we form government in Kano State, whatever number of commissioners and advisers we will appoint, I’ll give you 35% of each.”
However, some days later, he said they saw handwritten names of NNPP contestants for various elective positions flying on social media with only one person from Shekarau’s camp on the list. He added that after Shekarau brought that list to the notice of Kwankwaso, he said he was sorry that he won’t be able to honour the 35% agreement they had again. He said Kwankwaso scaled down the figure to 5% and Shekarau still agreed.
However, even the 5% agreement was not implemented before the deadline set by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for substitution of names closed.
