Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano state has challenged opposition parties in the state to produce better gubernatorial candidate and deputy candidate than that of All Progressives Congress (APC).
Ganduje threw the challenge on Wednesday at the flag-off campaign for the gubernatorial, deputy gubernatorial, State Assembly and National Assembly contestants, held in Gaya Emirate, Gaya town of Kano South Senatorial District.
Addressing mammoth crowd, Ganduje listed many reasons why gubernatorial candidate, Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna and deputy gubernatorial candidate, Murtala Sule Garo are the most qualified candidates for the exalted seat in the state, Ganduje further challenged all other opposition parties to present similar contestants in the race.
“Our gubernatorial candidate Dr Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna has political history similar to mine. He was local government chairman of the most populous local government in Nigeria, Nassarawa local government and he was Commissioner of Agriculture, among other things.
His running mate Murtala Sule Garo was a local government chairman, he was the state chairman of Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON) and he was Commissioner for Local Governments and Chieftaincy Affairs,” explained the governor.
He then challenged that, “All our contestants are in the best position to govern the state. We are therefore challenging all other political parties to present to our state similar candidates, if they can.”
