Governor Abdullahi Ganduje has left Kano’s APC structure in the hands of those who sabotage the party organisation, Ado-Doguwa observed at a press conference in Abuja on Friday.

Opposition People’s Democratic Party, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar.
Ado-Doguwa said: “My hope, and the hope of the APC people of Nigeria, is that Bola will carry out her duties; that Bola will build on what President Muhammadu Buhari had laid out earlier.
“I want to say today, no fear of shrinking; no fear of any intimidation; no need to worry about any place or any authority where there is a fire on the mountain as far as the APC in Kano is concerned. There is a fire on the mountain — I repeat, there is a fire on the mountain. This It’s the right time to say this, because we’ve been going through a silent crisis, especially in the party-government and political sphere, with a lot of intrigue and exclusion of members.
“Party management and administration is entirely done by a minority of party members who, from all positions, should not be dealing with what they are dealing with at the APC. To clarify, I would like to say Kano’s party politics; in our party, the APC.
Campaign Contribution Portal
Meanwhile, the country’s main political parties reacted to the launch of a fundraising website by the camp of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the president’s standard bearer for the All Progressive Congress.
The donation portal, called bat-ksm.com, also contains profiles of Tinubu and his running mate Senator Kashim Shettima; campaign videos and updated campaign press releases.
The development comes just four weeks after Labour presidential candidate Peter Obie opened a similar fundraising and campaign website.
Obi made the announcement in a tweet via his verified Twitter handle, and he encouraged his supporters to visit the Obi-Dati campaign’s official website and make financial pledges through the platform.
But the former Anambra state governor has largely come under fire on social media for creating a website whose sole purpose is to beg Nigerians for donations, despite his reputation for not serving “stone lions”. (no payment)
When contacted, Bayo Onanuga, director of media and advocacy for the APC Presidential Campaign Committee, confirmed that the site was indeed created for the campaign of the former Lagos governor.
However, Onanuga told our reporter it was not activated because it was still a “future project”.
He said: “It has not been activated because the account details have not been uploaded. If you click on the ‘donate’ button on the website, you will find that it has not been activated either.
“The website is dormant because the secretariat hasn’t really agreed on whether they need public donations. Only after such a decision can we publish bank account details on the website. So it’s on the internet. It’s futuristic .”
When asked about the reason for its inactive status, Onanuga noted that it has not been blessed by the presidential candidate and his party.
“First, candidates must agree whether we should accept donations. The parties must also agree. Even if the party secretary wants to collect donations, he will give us an account.
“All these things you see on the site are just futuristic buttons in case we need them. But as of now, it’s not activated,” he said.
Obi’s media aide Tai Emeka Obasi reacted to the drama, calling the action a hypocrisy by the Tinubu campaign.
Obasi, who claimed he couldn’t blame anyone, said it was clear his principal had set the pace for other candidates to follow ahead of the 2023 presidential election.
