Kano state Governor, Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso on Sunday said that he regrets voting for President Goodluck Jonathan, because the president has disappointed Nigerians.
“I am regretting for voting President Goodluck Jonathan in 2011 Presidential Election, as he has done nothing to move the nation forward”, he alleged. adding that Kano people are not welcoming the president for Tuesday’s state visit since there is no project in any part of the state that Jonathan’s Federal Government has or is undertaking.
The president was scheduled to visit Kano on Tuesday but it is unclear if the visit will still hold following the bomb blast which occurred on Monday in Abuja.
Gov. Kwankwaso added that since when Jonathan assumed office, nothing has been done towards the development of the nation, lamenting that under President Jonathan, corruption, insecurity and embezzlement of treasury have become the order of the day.
“Only a few people are enjoying in Nigeria at the expense of the generality of the citizenry” Kwankwaso said, lamenting that despite the Presidents manifest inadequacies, the incumbent president is bent on being reelected in 2015, declaring that achieving such an objective is impossible.
Governor Kwankwaso made these statements during APC Elders Meeting, at Government House, Kano, noting that people are still waiting to hear the truth about the missing alleged mismanaged 20 billion USD Federal funds, which led to the suspension of the CBN Governor, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi.
“If someone alleges that N20 million is missing in one of the Kano state Ministries, first of all, I will investigate the matter and if find the allegation is true, I must commend the person for job well done and then take the appropriate action on it,” Kwankwaso emphasized.
He, therefore, asserted that adding that Kano people will not welcome the President on Tuesday’s state visit because he has done nothing to make life better for them rather he has unjustifiably sacked “our illustrious and respected son, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi.”
He urged electorate to vote for APC in 2015 in order to form central and state governments, disclosing that APC is now the most powerful party in Africa.
Kwankwaso accused PDP for planning to disrupt unity among the party members by deploying money to buy people over, pointing out that already APC has taken measures to tackle the issue.
The governor appealed to APC supporters to be very patient as the party has set up the necessary machinery that would ensure victory in the 2015 General Elections, noting that in Kano alone more, than 2.3 million people have registered as card carrying members of party.
According to Governor Kwankwaso , those who are calling on INEC not to conduct elections in 2015 in North Eastern Nigeria have lost focus and are aware that their party would not win any election in that region.
