Former Kano State Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso has blamed the rising agitations in the country on the collapse of the country’s political system.
Kwankwaso, an All Progressives Congress (APC) senator, speaking to newsmen in Abuja, expresses concern that the existing political parties in the country, including APC and opposition parties are not functioning well.
APC, according to him is sick, not well funded, and has not hold any critical meeting of its leaders since it was formed.
Kwankwaso also said that opposition parties have irreconcilable problems rendering them inactive.
“They cannot function well. Our party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) is not well, I mean is not well funded. No serious meeting has taken place since we came on board.
“The opposition too has problem which seems to be irreconcilable. Under this, we are bound to have a kind of situation,” he added.
On the rising agitation in the north and south east, he calls for a dialogue between the two regions, instead of arrest of northern youths who canvassed for Ndigbo to quit the North.
“Dialogue and discussion with both sides is the way out; there is need for caution on both sides… Secession is not solution for lopsided appointments. I’m sure if you remember, there were issues over skewed appointment, but nobody called for break up. The way out is to be on the table,” he said.
