Crisis rocks Kwankwasiyya camp as PDP lawmaker turns against Kwankwaso (+AUDIO)
The silent crisis rocking the Kwankwasiyya political movement led by former Kano State governor, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, has taken a new twist with some members of the camp openly lambasting the former senator.
Kwankwasiyya movement, which pride itself as the engine room of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Kano State has been having one crisis to the other following the woeful performance of the party in the 2019 elections.
PlatinumPost gathered that the current crack in the ‘red cap’ political movement appears to be a final nail on the coffin of the ambitious group that once boasted of its capacity to sweep all elections in Kano, as some PDP lawmakers are now at dagger-drawn with Kwankwaso over his recent comment on their performance.
One out of the ten PDP members in the Kano State House of Assembly, Lawan Dala, is said to be leading the onslaught against Kwankwaso as he berated him over remarks made against the lawmakers by calling them ineffective in discharging their legislative duties.

Kwankwaso had penultimate Saturday took a swipe on the PDP Kwankwasiyya members at the State Assembly by reportedly accussing them of doing nothing to stop Governor Abdullahi Ganduje from taking loans to finance major projects in the state.
Kwankwaso was said to have expressed disappointment over their inability to throw ‘political blows’ on the governor, allegedly saying that they were there to protect Kwankwasiyya policies and not to dance to the tune of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
But reacting to Kwankwaso’s comment, Lawan, who represents Dala Local Government in the State House of Assembly, said a ‘kettle cannot call pot black’.
He said the Assembly is discharging its legislative functions according to the rules and regulations and in line with the ethics of the House.
He wondered why Kwankwaso, who was as a senator was silent when the APC led Federal Government was frequenting the Senate with loads of external loans that were promptly approved will now be the one to lecture on how to stop a governor from taking loan.
Lawan posited that being only 10 out of the 40-member Assembly, the PDP lawmakers lack the numbers to stop the Kano government from borrowing.
He cautioned Kwankwaso against making unnecessary comments in order not to throw Kwankwasiyya family into a perpetual crisis , as nothing will stop the lawmakers from defending themselves on issues that border on their integrity.
