Gov. Ganduje Threatens To “Expose” Kwankwaso

The crisis between former Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso of Kano and his successor, Umar Ganduje, has taken a new twist with Mr. Ganduje threatening to expose “shoddy deals” perpetrated by Mr. Kwankwaso.

The two leaders have been embroiled in a row lately, with each accusing the other of creating crisis in the ruling All Progressives Congress.

Mr. Ganduje was deputy governor under Mr. Kwankwaso for eight years.

Governor Ganduje said Monday that “some works done(by Mr. Kwankwaso) were done with hell lots of misdeeds and betrayals which I will soon expose for people to know the calibre of person my predecessor was”.

He said: “Kano people will always resist any attempt by anyone to shortchange them – which Kwankwaso did. Yes we knew the genuine projects including the shoddy ones which I will not tolerate by exposing them for people to judge his action”.

Speaking while inspecting road projects at Dakata- Bella road in Nassarawa local government area of the state, Governor Ganduje said Mr. Kwankwaso was in Kano to campaign to replace President Muhammadu Buhari “while there is no vacancy for that position”.

“Unfortunately for him the avenue and the time were so wrong. But because God wants to expose his antics which he has been doing against the president, he chose my mother’s death to launch the presidential campaign, but we leave him with the people”.

He said, “A lot of things have been happening now. Some people have been trying to undermine President Muhammadu Buhari with all sorts of things. We will not tolerate it again here in Kano. We are tired of your atrocities. I will soon expose him before the people of Kano for them to to appreciate the satan in him”.

“People, who are now telling Buhari all sorts of things, are sycophants. They do not want Buhari to succeed. These people know themselves. When it gets to a stage, I will name them one after the other. I am not afraid of human beings,” he said.

“We are solidly behind President Muhammad Buhari and his programmes. Kano people will not support anybody working against President Buhari.”

Governor Ganduje said that “It is unfortunate for the so-called politician who claimed to be leader to hire hoodlums with dangerous weapons to disrupt the peace of the state. Government and security agencies will not tolerate this attitude”.

He said, “It is known to everybody that Ganduje is a man of peace, tolerance and patience; because I have tolerated Kwankwaso for a long time, but it is over and enough is enough”.
