A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kano State, Aminu Abdulsalam, has described pensioners in the state as Ingrates.
Abdulsalam, a former deputy governorship candidate in the 2019 election, stated that the pensioners would go to hell for accusing a former governor of the state, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, of fraud.
Recall that Kano State pensioners had reports Kwankwaso, a former Minister of Defence, to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
The leader of the Kwankwasiyya Movement, however, refused to honour the invite of the anti-graft agency.
Speaking on Express Radio, Abdulsalam said the pensioners were wrong for dragging Kwankwaso to the EFCC.
He claimed that the former Kano state governor did a lot for pensioners during his tenure.
Abdulsalam stated that Kwankwaso should be appreciated for reviewing the minimum monthly pension to N5,000.
“Kwankwaso has done his best to the pensioners and any pensioner that is not appreciative of what Kwankwaso did will go to hellfire,” he said.
“You can understand them going to hellfire because they are not grateful.”
While stating that some pensioners did not sign the petition to the EFCC, Abdulsalam blamed their leaders for instigating the fraud allegation against Kwankwaso.
The PDP chieftain in Kano State accused the pension leaders of being partisan.
