2019: Oshiomhole Endorses Ganduje For Second Term, As Ganduje Promises 5million Votes For Buhari In Kano State

Published

Kano state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje has received the support of APC national Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole to run for a second term in office.

This, Naija News understands is despite an unresolved bribery scandal allegation hanging on his neck.

It will be recalled that Naija News had earlier reported that the governor is facing growing condemnation by Nigerians over viral videos showing him receiving alleged bribes from an unidentified contractor.

He has denied the allegations despite the overwhelming evidence first released by online new medium, Daily Nigerian.

Mr Ganduje is seeking reelection under the ruling APC and is expected to battle 21 others opposition candidates including a female candidate.

The endorsement by the party, which took place at Sani Abacha Stadium, Kofar Mata, Kano was at an event to receive Peoples Democratic Party members who defected to APC.

Mr Oshiomole who stole the event with dancing, while endorsing Mr Ganduje, said all corrupt politicians that “are regrouping into one political party fold will not escape jail”.

“I have said it before that progressive Nigerians will reason positively on how things has been going under APC and realign with us. That’s why Mr Ibrahim Shekarau and others reunited back into the APC.

“Those that don’t have the fear of God and cope with President Buhari’s administration are those that are united in looting public treasury, are now regrouping back to PDP, they have no hiding place. They must face the wrath of the law and we will keep them where thieves are kept.”

In his speech, the elated governor, Mr Ganduje, said he will give President Muhammadu Buhari five million votes in 2019.

He stated that, “even a blind person will notice a progressive change is in place in terms of infrastructural development in the metropolitan city and the rural areas”.

He said his administration introduced rural integrated development which focused on education, health, agriculture, environment, security and roads interconnection.

“APC administration in Kano is in harmony with religious clerics, traditional leaders, business people, youth and others social groups in the state,” Mr Ganduje said.

Also at the event, the Governor of Jigawa State, Mohammed Badaru, slammed the opposition PDP.

He said they championed the economic recession faced by APC’s administration.

Any politician with the nation’s interest at heart will not disassociate himself with President Buhari’s administration because the regime is committed toward betterment of the country and well-being of Nigerians.“Those people (PDP) are good in concocting things and lies to show people, thank God, people of Kano and Jigawa are wise enough to understand their dubious deals.”

The event witnessed a large turnout of party faithful including two serving senators, members of the house representatives and state assembly, as well as the state party chairman.
