The Kano Police Command, Friday advised Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, to shelved his planned visit to Kano next Tuesday.

Since Kwankwaso announced his intention to visit Kano late a year ago, tension has continued to build with his supporters and that of Governor Abdullahi Ganduje openly opposing each other over the visit.

He said, " there is apprehension amongst the general public and the tendencies to hijack the visit by some disgruntled politicians or miscreants can not be wished away ".

The Kwankwasiyya-led faction is to hold a rally in honour of ex-Governor Kwankwaso on January 30, ahead of local government elections in the state.

"The report is clearly the work of mischief makers who are desperately trying to prevent the visit of the Kwankwaso who is been cherished by his teeming supporters".

"We wish to make it categorically clear that Sen. Therefore, our teeming supporters should disregard this report which is a total falsehood", the statement noted.

If you must know, Ganduje was Kwankwaso's deputy for two terms before he moved up the ladder to succeed Kwankwaso as the governor, only for Ganduje to start biting the fingers that once fed him, but it is only those who know the nitty gritty of the hostilities that can volunteer the real genesis of the ugly situation.
