Atiku’s in-law rejects appointment into PDP Campaign Council in Kano


By Aminu Kutama

A prominent politician in Kano, Ibrahim Ali-Amin (Little), on Thursday, rejected his appointment as Deputy Director of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Campaign Management Council in Kano.

Alhaji Ali-Amin, a grassroots mobilizer, who stated this in a press statement, did not state his reason for the rejection, but this paper gathered that while he expected to be named Director General of the Council in Kano, a former Chief of Staff to former Governor of Kano State, Rabiu Kwankwaso, Dr Yunusa Adamu Dangwani was instead appointed into the position.

“While wishing all members of the Council and its Chairman Dr Yunusa Adamu Dangwani the very best in the discharge of this responsibility, I wish to state it clear that I will not be working in that capacity but will give my maximum support towards the success of our great party and Alhaji Atiku Abubakar in the forthcoming 2023 general election,” Little stated.

The veteran Kano gubernatorial candidate also expressed his surprise at the publication of his name as Deputy Director of the Council despite his earlier rejection of the nomination by the party.

“I was contacted that I will be named Deputy Director which I initially declined before this announcement. It was surprising seeing my name been announced at the venue of the inauguration where friends, political associates and well wishers drew my attention to it.

I wish to reemphasise my earlier stand to decline this appointment but will give my best for the victory of our great party anytime.”

Little also added that the victory of the PDP in the poll is his top utmost concern, and he can still give that contribution without being part of the campaign management council.

The Kano Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had been embroiled in crisis as a result of friction of interests between different factions of the party in the state.
