Lifestyle Nigeria gathered that Some Kano-based All Progressives Congress, APC, members have urged the party’s leadership to act swiftly and harshly against President Muhammadu Buhari’s adviser, Bashir Ahmad, for what they claim to be his disrespect for the party’s advancement.
The party’s supporters charged Bashir Ahmad with choosing to travel to the far-off World Cup final in Qatar while the group was battling for control of Kano and Nigeria in general.
Ahmad’s issue warrants concern, Alhaji Samani Inuwa, a party leader from Gaya Local Government, and other party members informed reporters.
He said, “we cannot comprehend how Bashir Ahmad chooses to be in Qatar when in Kano we were in Gaya Local Government to launch the party gubernatorial and other positions campaigns.
“If every member of the Party would act the way Bashir acted, we don’t think APC would make it to the elective offices, therefore a punishment should quickly meted on him to serve as a deterrent to others.”
The party leaders, in the same vein, congratulated Governor Abdullahi Ganduje for ensuring a peaceful flag-off of the gubernatorial campaigns in Gaya, assuring that despite the odds of the likes of Bashir Ahmad, the APC would win Kano.
Bashir Ahmad, President Muhammadu Buhari’s aide on Online Media, tweeted his photograph in a stadium in Qatar watching the World Cup. The tweet has attracted backlash as party members described his action as unfortunate.
Efforts to reach Ahmad were unsuccessful at the time of filing this report.
