Votes For APC From One Local Government In Kano Higher Than Entire South-East Region – Governor Ganduje Boasts

In an interview with Channels Television on Monday, Ganduje claimed that the Peoples Democratic Party would suffer from the rise of Obi in the South-East because he would split the region’s votes, giving Bola Tinubu, the APC’s presidential candidate, a chance to win.

The emergence of Labour Party with Obi as the presidential candidate, in my opinion, is a good omen to APC because, what is our political investment in the South-East?, the votes we got from Nassarawa local government in Kano metropolitan were much higher than the total votes APC got in the five states of the South-East; so you can see that if there is any problem politically in the South-East, it is the PDP that is to blame.

So, I believe that Obi’s rise from the south-eastern region of this country is something that would cost the PDP votes.

Musa Kwankaso’s emergence as the New Nigeria Political Party’s (NNPP) presidential candidate, he continued, posed no threat to the APC.

Kwankwaso is a presidential candidate, there is no question about that, but equally to say that we are fully on the ground and many of his people are now members of our political party. So you can see that if Kwankwaso thinks he can win the party, let him hold a rally or match like this, I assure you, compare them, compare what we have, and see if he can do.

We will fight it out even at the state level, but I can assure you that the APC is a party to beat in Kano State. When you talk of the Kwankwaso group, you will see that the group too has reduced in strength because a great number of them remained and came back to APC after seeing that their party will go nowhere in the presidential election.

When you talk about the Kwankwaso group, you’ll notice that it has also diminished in size because a large number of them stayed and returned to the group.
