Kano State governor, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje congratulated his predecessor and former boss, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, on his birthday. I feel Kwankwanso and Ganduje will surely one day reconcile. These people have come a very long way together. It is the political devil that is harassing their conscience and calculations. However, their supporters gave Ganduje’s birthday message different interpretations and are killing themselves over it.
Kwankwasiyya followers said it was hypocrisy and deception. Some of them viewed it as a nice gesture. On the other hand, the Gandujiyya followers said it was a respect for the former governor.
Either way, I see it as an important step in building bridges and mending fences. How I wish Kwankwaso will, one day, do the same!
The supporters of the two camps should sit and just watch the two gladiators keenly and carefully. They shouldn’t be fighting and insulting one another. One day they Kwankwaso and Ganduje will reconcile. There is no permanent enemy in politics.
I am sure with time you will see Kwankwaso hugging Ganduje and singing his praises. On the other hand, Ganduje has always reached out and is still referring to Kwankwaso as his political father.
With this kind of move, reconciliation is easy.
Who expected Abubakar Rimi and Sabo-Bakin Zuwo to become friends again? Who expected Atiku Abubakar and General Olesagun Obasanjo to come back together? Who knew Nasiru El-Rufai and General Muhammadu Buhari would be together again.
On the flip-side who expected Buba Galadima and Buhari or Malam Ibrahim Shekarau and Buhari to part ways. One day they will also reconcile.
That is politics for you. Don’t lose sleep over politicians and their fights. They are very selfish and deceptive!
