Hours after endorsing his son in-law, Abba Kabir Yusuf, as Kano PDP governorship flag-bearer, the leader of Kwankwasiyya movement, Rabiu Kwankwaso, has allocated two more seats of the House of Representatives to his son and brother in-laws.

Mr Kwankwaso made the final endorsements of the two in-laws shortly after endorsing Mr Yusuf on Saturday night.

While Mr Kwankwaso allocated the Tarauni Federal Constituency ticket to his son-in law, Mukhtar Yerima, the party leader re-allocated the Gwarzo/Kabo Federal Constituency to his brother in-law, Nasiru Sule Garo.

Sources said Mr Kwankwaso was initially not disposed allocating the Gwarzo/Kabo ticket to Mr Garo in view of his alleged non-performance as a lawmaker, but he succumbed to “home front” pressure last night.

The nepotism was perpetuated further when Mr Kwankwaso endorsed Munir Dahiru, the son in-law to the state caretaker chairman, Rabiu Sulaiman Bichi, for Dawakin Tofa/Tofa/Rimingado Federal Constituency.

DAILY NIGERIAN gathered that the nepotism has brought crack in the Kwankwasiyya camp, with many party leaders threatening to fight against the decision.
