Tinubu’s cabinet: Kwankwaso missed out Recall that before the presidential inauguration in May 2023, President Bola Tinubu held a closed-door meeting with Kwankwaso alongside other prominent members of the opposition in Paris, France.

Those familiar with the development disclosed that Kwankwaso had confirmed that Tinubu was seeking the possibility of convincing him to join his cabinet and then return to the APC. This happened amid a power tussle in Kano between Kwankwaso and the APC national chairman, Abdullahi Ganduje. However, that seemed to have been tentatively settled with the Supreme Court’s judgement on Friday, January 12, which favoured the NNPP and Kwankwaso’s protégé, Abba Kabir Yusuf, the governor of the state.

The eventual submission of the ministerial nominees to the national assembly had Kwankwaso’s name conspicuously missing. It was gathered that the president jettisoned the idea of appointing Kwankwaso as a minister because he believed there was no sense in empowering the opposition, who would eventually use the resources to fight back. However, the chairman of NNPP in Kano, Hashim Suleiman Dongurawa, refuted the claims, saying there was not an official statement from the presidency where Kwankwaso was promised a ministerial appointment. Even so, the newspaper said a source in Kwankwanso’s camp disclosed that he (Kwankwaso) communicated his rejection of a ministerial appointment to Tinubu as a strategy to secure his political dynasty.
