Kano State Governor, Alhaji Rabiu Kwankwaso, has disclosed that  if the former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Malam Nuhu Ribadu, joins the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), he will be the biggest loser and a big political mistake.

Kwankwaso said: “Ribadu is widely known as a man of integrity and I can remember that when he was the chairman of EFCC, he did his job very well. My advice to him is not to join the PDP because at the end, he will be the biggest loser.”

Speaking with a panel of journalists in his office yesterday, Kwankwaso said: “Most of those in the PDP were indicted for corruption by him and now they want him to join them; I believe at the end, they will also begin to haunt him.

“If he joins their party, which I believe he cannot make that mistake, but if he joins them, that means all what we are talking about him is wrong. In my opinion it will be a big political mistake.”

Kwankwaso added: “In my own opinion, it will be better for him to remain in the All Progressive Congress (APC) because people see him as man of his word not someone who is going to be desperate for power.”

On the issue of the National Conference, the governor said: “Any constitution other than 1999 Constitution, I don’t think it will certainly help this country. We told our delegates to reject any new constitution apart from the 1999 Constitution.

“People should come together to rescue the country. I know some people are trying to amend the constitution for single term of six years. It is unfortunate for them to use their agents and smuggle it.”

Kwankwaso also commended the youths and people of Nasarawa State for their support for Governor Tanko Al-Makura and also lamented that those at the top are exploiting the weakness of the constitution.

He faulted a situation whereby the state House of Assembly can impeach a governor or speaker, saying it was bad for democracy.

Commenting on the 2015 elections, the governor said the APC would massively be voted for by the people of the country who are yearning for a change.
