Senator Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso, yesterday, described the recent endorsement of Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje’s second gubernatorial bid by President Muhammadu Buhari during his presidential campaign visit to Kano State as added advantage to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state.
Speaking during a two-hour programme on a local radio station in the state, Kwankwaso, a serving Senator representing Kano Central, stated that with all the circumstances surrounding the candidature of Gov. Ganduje, Buhari’s endorsement was a big mistake.
“For those that genuinely love Mr. President, the endorsement was seen as a mistake, and I strongly believe that it was a mistake.
“However, for us in the PDP, President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit to Kano State and his endorsement of his party’s gubernatorial candidate was a big campaign for us; go round and sample views, you will understand what I am saying,” Kwankwaso said.
He further said his party and the Kwankwasiyya Movement were always committed to serving the interest of the general public, adding that the way government activities were being conducted in present day democracy called for serious attention.
“I am not contesting for any position; I have observed the happenings for three good years and now is the time for all well-meaning Nigerians to use their constitutional right to effect the needed readjustments.
“The way government and government activities are being conducted in present day democracy in Nigeria calls for a serious attention to the dictates of real democracy,” he said.
