Kwankwaso served as governor of Kano state from 1999 till 2003, while Wali is a former Nigerian ambassador to China.

The faction announced Kwankwaso’s expulsion from the party on Thursday, after a congress which ushered in a new set of leaders for the PDP chapter in the state.

At the congress which held at the Kano foundation house, the Wali faction elected Muhammina Lamido as the chairman of the party, and Garba Gezawa as secretary.

Thirty-nine new executive members were elected to oversee the activities of the party in Kano state.

Two factions loyal to Wali and Kwankwaso, respectively, have been at loggerheads over the leadership of the party.

On December 9, 2020, a federal high court sitting in Kano dismissed the suit filed by the Wali faction against the caretaker leadership of the party loyal to Kwankwaso.

The court also affirmed the caretaker leadership loyal to the former governor as the authentic party executive.
