Rabiu Kwankwaso, former governor of Kano state, says the crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has weakened it as an opposition.
The PDP chieftain said this on Friday in an interview with BBC Hausa.
Kwankwaso said the crisis is “heightened by those who are after leadership” of the party.
“Now the strength of the party has reduced and in the end what will happen is that it will tear us apart,” he said.
“You see the result will not help us since we do not have a president and we do not have many governors.
“People like me have nothing to do with the crisis. I’m after what will bring development to people; every good leader should focus on that.
“The party chairman has only one month left. I think it’s better to wait so that we can emerge stronger.
