Kano State governor, Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso, has said President Goodluck Jonathan’s foot soldiers in the state were afraid to campaign for his re-election because of the total “failure” that characterised his administration.
The governor made the statement when he received a delegation from Dawakin Tofa Local Government Area of the state at the Government House on a solidarity visit.
“It is clear that Jonathan’s men in Kano are afraid to campaign for him because they have nothing to show. We have been saying that this regime is a total failure and a disaster for Nigeria. This is why, despite our ties with the PDP, we decided to abandon the party for the APC. What Nigeria needs now is a strong leader that would correct all these mess that Nigeria is going through.
“The APC is providing this leader in the person of General Buhari. We would continue to work for the success of the party at all levels; from presidential downwards. And this is why we have been telling our people to be obedient to the party and its leaders.
In Kwankwasiyya, it is achievement that makes people not bragging or arrogant. When you say it is your bragging that would earn you a position, we would then prove you wrong,” Kwankwaso said.
Leader of the delegation, Madakin Kano and District Head of Dawakin Tofa, Alhaji Yusuf Nabahani Cigari, said they were at the government house to extend their appreciation to the governor for the support he had been giving to the deputy governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, who is an indigene of the area.
