By Ibrahim Imam – A former governor of Kano State and senator representing Kano Central District, Rabiu Kwankwaso has denied holding any secret meeting with former president Olusegun Obasanjo.

Mr. Kwankwaso said contrary to reports that he was not in Lagos where he purportedly met with the former president, he was actually attending to other meetings in Kaduna at the time.

Co-Chairman of Nigeria intervention Movement Olisa Agbakoba on Sunday confirmed Obasanjo met with former governors, political parties and some leaders in a secret meeting in Lagos.

Reacting, Kwankwaso’s political associate, Binta Rabi’u Spikin, dismissed the reports of Kwankwaso’s presence at the meeting.

He said the news was based on eagerness of the people to know where Kwankwaso stands.

He said “Senator Kwankwaso never met with Obasanjo in Lagos state as speculated.

“Senator Kwankwaso was in Kaduna having series of meetings with various stakeholders of Kwankwasiyya-led faction of the APC. The story that went viral on social media was false, unfounded and uncalled-for.

“People are clamouring for the ‘real change’ hence they were eager to know where the national leader of Kwankwasiyya, Senator Rabi’u Kwankwaso focuses his political attention, so they could follow him.”

A member of Kwankwasiyya, Alhaji Umar Haruna Doguwa, also denied such meeting, stating that such meeting if it held, it would not be political.

“Although I am not aware of any meeting between Obj and Kwankwaso, but in my opinion such a meeting if at all they met should not be seen as political.

“This is because the former president is now an elder statesman and has been meeting with various people including President Muhammadu Buhari.” Doguwa added
