Wearing Of Kwankwaso’s Signature Red Cap By Kano APC Members Now Optional, Says New Caretaker Chair

KWANKWASO-AND-GANDUJEThe sea of bright-colored red caps that has been a part of Kano politics in the last four years is about to be discarded if the instruction by the newly appointed caretaker chairman of the Kano state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Abbas Sunusi, is anything to go by.
The red cap was the symbol of power, solidarity and loyalty to Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso and his supporters when he held sway as governor of the state.
But a recent test of political will between the former governor, who is now a senator, and his successor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, is threatening the red cap as Sunusi on Tuesday said that the wearing of red caps by party faithful is now optional.
The Kano APC caretaker chair, who spoke at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja while fielding questions from journalists, stated that there was nothing wrong in the sacking of the former chairman, Umar Haruna Doguwa, and the former state organizing secretary, Sunusi Sirajo, for committing offences against the party despite the ongoing reconciliation efforts.
Doguwa and Sirajo were believed to have been removed for recognizing Kwankwaso as leader of the party in Kano State.
Asked to explain the reasons behind the sudden change of minds to throw away the red cap in the aftermath of the Ganduje/Kwankwaso feud, Sunusi said: “It is not a question of change. Now, it is optional. If you like you can put it. Now, there is change. So, they now have a free hand to do whatever they want to do. If you want red, you put it on. If you want green or black, it’s optional. You can put on anything you want”.
