For the 2023 elections, members of the APC from Kano South are said to be unhappy with the endorsement of Gawuna and Murtala Garo, from Kano Central and Kano North respectively.

In a letter addressed to the ward chairman of the APC, Massu town, the deputy speaker, who is representing Sumaila Local Government Area from Kano South in the assembly, announced his resignation from the APC.

He explained that the decision came after a series of consultations with his constituents and supporters about recent happenings in the party.

Although Massu did not reveal his next move, he stated, “Following the recent happening in the party coupled with series of consultations with my constituents, supporters and stakeholders in Sumaila and Kano North in general, I write to notify you of my intention and decision to resign as a member of APC.”
