July 28, 2018
Former governor of Kano State,Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso has vowed to ensure the failure of president Muhammadu Buhari in Kano State come 2019 general election.
Senator Kwankwaso who spoke through his spokesperson, Binta Spikin, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari will not win in Kano State in the 2019 general election no matter how they try.
She said this to PREMIUM TIMES while reacting to Transportation Minister, Rotimi Amaechi’s comment on Mr Buhari’s chances of winning the 2019 general election even on sick bed.
Recall that Mr. Amaechi had on Friday said Mr Buhari will win in Sokoto, Kano and Bauchi States in the 2019 general elections even if he was taken to the states “on a sick bed”.
In her response on behalf of senator Kwankwaso, Mrs Spikin said Mr Kwankwaso’s defection will not only affect the votes in Kano State but has brought down the APC.
“I think his defection will greatly affect the votes in 2019. His defection will not only affect the chances of the APC in Kano, his defection has brought down APC.
“If you look across Nigeria today, not Kano alone, there’s nowhere in Nigeria that you don’t have the presence of Kwankwasiyya (supporters of Mr Kwankwaso).
“Kano is his home base and he is well grounded in Kano. Even without the government, he had a 60 percent of the voters, so what do you think will happen now that he has joined forces with people like Mallam Ibrahim Shekarau?” she said.
She further said the government needs to know that there is a path that is blocked “even if you fight it.”
“Even if the government puts whatever in place, there is no way President Buhari will win in Kano, there’s no way, said.”
Mr Kwankwaso was one of the 15 senators who defected from the Ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) on Tuesday to the Opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
