The Kano state Governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has threatened to probe the former Governor of the state, Rabiu Kwankwaso.

This is in reaction to the ultimatum issued by the Kwankwasiyya movement, asking the Governor to take off his red cap within 48 hours or face legal hurdles.

A statement signed by the Kano Commissioner of information and culture, Alhaji Muhammad Garba, said “The threat of legal action against Governor Ganduje by the movement if he fails to stop wearing red cap within 48 hours is the most laughable, pathetic, clear indication of their ignorance of the law and history of political struggle in Kano. They should have known that red cap was introduced by Late Aminu Kano and popularized by him, his followers and disciples for which Governor Ganduje was among.

“He was also at the forefront of its re-introduction during the second tenure of Kwankwaso in 2011. Who then could better claim the red cap doctrine?

“This unfortunate behaviour lacking in any tint of civility, decency and responsible politicking that has become the hallmark of top echelons of the Kwankwasiyya movement is, to say the least, laughable, pathetic, pitiful and desperate attempt to misguide the public and bring the administration of Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje and his personality to disrepute.”

The Kano Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje also accused his predecessor, Kwankwaso of refusing to pay fees of overseas students to the tune of N3billion, while he was Governor.
