Governor Rabi’u Kwankwaso of Kano State yesterday asked Nigerians to work together to kick out the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) out of power in 2015.

Nigerians, he said , are yearning for change in every facet of life and the time for it has come.

The governor spoke when a delegation of the former CPC members from Kano, led by Brig. Gen. Lawal Jafaru Isa (rtd), paid him a solidarity visit at the Government House, Kano.

“Every rational person knows that we need change. The PDP used to be an umbrella for everybody, but it is now a hat for one man. Some people are holding the country hostage so we must come together to rescue it”, he said.

“The issue is not that of tribalism. Nigerians, irrespective of where they come from, have been existing as friends and brothers for long, but when somebody from the South South took over the mantle of leadership of the country, things started drifting. That is why we must come together to save this country”, he added.

He stressed that in every democratic system, citizens have a right to voice out their feelings, regarding how they are governed, explaining that the APC is a collection of progressives that are not only determined to cry out against injustice, but also determined to ensure that Nigerians get the right calibre of people to lead them.

On the recent defection of five PDP governors to the APC, Governor Kwankwaso stated that it is only a tip of the iceberg, pointing out that more governors will soon leave the party as it has lost credibility and potency to take Nigeria to the Promised Land.

Governor Kwankwaso described his guests as partners in progress, highlighting that it is in line with his belief in the politics of ideology and development as against enmity and mistrust.

In his speech, Brig. Gen. Isa told the governor that the visit was to express their solidarity and loyalty to the governor as leader of the APC, urging him to carry everybody along in the quest to ensure that the ruling PDP is dislodged at all levels in the country.

“ The APC has its problems which can be resolved amicably. We urge you to be patient and continue to provide good leadership to the people. All members of the party are equal so I wish to appeal to you to call our members that have grudges to come forth so that things can be sorted out. Our doors are open, and as progressives, we must be willing to embrace all.”
