 APC to NNPP You re lucky if you come 3rd in Kano guber poll


The Campaign Council of the gubernatorial election of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kano State has told the opposition New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) to stop counting itself as the winner of the governorship election, coming up in March in the state.

Spokesman of the campaign council, Malam Muhammad Garba, who is the Commissioner of Information and Culture, stated this during a chat with members of the Kano Correspondents’ Chapel at his office on Monday.

According to Garba, the NNPP’s governorship candidate, Abba Kabir Yusuf, does not have the political mettle to defeat Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna of the APC in the state.

The Commissioner stated that NNPP in the state, which is the second most populous in Nigeria is sinking and becoming unpopular, saying “ the party should consider itself lucky if it comes 3rd or even 4th in the forthcoming election.”

He added that “APC will take NNPC by surprise. Even Kwankwaso will be taken by surprise because he will lose Kano. I will not say Kwankwaso will get zero vote, but I am telling you that he will be defeated with a landslide by Tinubu in Kano.

“APC is really on ground. We are well prepared for the election and we shall win by landslide in the presidential and gubernatorial election,” the Campaign Council spokesman said.

Garba also stated that with the impressive turnout of supporters in the APC gubernatorial campaign rally in the Local Government areas the campaign train has visited so far, the party has got confidence that it would sweep all the elective positions from top to bottom in the coming elections.

He also said that the era of inconclusive election is over in the state as the party has set aside a mechanism to avoid repetition, noting that “we have discovered the Kwankwaso-led PDP’s election manipulation and would not succeed this time around.”

The Commissioner also stated that in all the governorship candidates in Kano, Gawuna has an edge over them because of his political and administrative experiences as a politician who has held several public offices.

“Gawuna has been accepted by all sections in this state, be it business communities, elders, women groups and everybody. His maturity and experience is unmatched by other gubernatorial candidates. So, i am optimistic he will emerge as winner, God willing,” Garba said.

He also disclosed that the state governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje was impressed by Gawuna’s manifesto when it was presented to him, adding that “the governor was confident that our governorship candidate would emulate him.”
