The political feud between Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, and his predecessor in office, Engineer Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso slide further yesterday following threat by the former to expose the latter’s shady deals while in office.
The latest round of brickbats was sequel to break down of relationship between the two APC stalwarts that had already polarised party faithful across the state.
Speaking while inspecting a road project at Dakata- Bella, Nassarawa Local Government Area of the state, Governor Ganduje who spoke to a mammoth crowd in Hausa said, “Some of the landmark achievements purportedly executed by Kwankwaso were characterised with sharp practices, and we would soon expose him for people to know the calibre of person he was.”
The Governor, who was overwhelmed by spontaneous outing of locals, declared that, “we are peaceful people, we don’t go about with dangerous weapons and our mission is to contribute to uplift the life of our people and we won’t be distracted.”
He lamented that Kwankwaso converted what ought to be a condolence visit to a presidential campaign, as he reminded his estranged godfather to bury his ambition as there is no vacancy at the Aso Rock villa.
In Ganduje’s words, “a lot of things had happened recently where some people have been undermining President Muhammadu Buhari. I want to make it clear that we would not tolerate insubordination under our roof and Kano would do the needful whenever the need arises.”
Ganduje further said, “We are solidly behind President Muhammad Buhari and his programmes. Kano people will not support anybody working against him.”
Governor Ganduje warned 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 advised Kano citizens to always watch those working against the unity and peace of the state, assuring that all measures have been put in place to restore the lost glory of the state.
