APC leader, Bola Tinubu

All Progressives Congress National Leader, Bola Tinubu, has stepped in to resolve the local political squabbles between Abdulmunin Jibrin and Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje.

Jibrin had announced his decision to leave the APC for an undisclosed party on Saturday.

While Jibrin failed to give his reasons for leaving the APC, it was gathered that his exit was related to the decision not to give him the party’s ticket to return to the House of Representatives.

There had been a crisis of confidence between Jibrin and Ganduje for some time over local political issues.

Jibrin had represented Kiru/Bebeji Federal Constituency at the House of Representatives between 2011 and 2019 before losing the rerun election to the Peoples Democratic Party’s candidate in 2020.

While Jibrin had announced his dumping the APC, gathered that Asiwaju Tinubu reached out to Ganduje to reach a truce.

According to WesternPost, Tinubu has already intervened on Jibrin’s behalf with Ganduje and everything would be resolved.

“Jibrin is coming to see Asiwaju. Asiwaju has stepped in. Jibrin is having local issues with his constituency and Ganduje. Everything will be sorted,” the source told the medium.
