Ex governor of Kano State, Rabiu Kwankwaso has said political parties in the country are not functioning properly.
While speaking with journalists in Abuja on Wednesday, Kwankwaso said political parties are weakened.
“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 said.
He also disagreed with Kaduna state governor, Nasir El-Rufai that northern youths who gave ultimatum to Igbos to leave should be arrested.
He said the youths should rather be engaged in a peaceful discussion.
“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.
