Abdullahi Ganduje, governor of Kano state, says the defection of Rabiu Kwankwaso, his predecessor, from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will have no effect on President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election.

In an interview with journalists on Saturday, Ganduje said the defection would not change the political mood in Kano state.

“I want you to go and study the situation on ground in Kano, his (Kwankwaso) defection does not change the political mood in the state. Nobody cares to be disturbed by their action,” Ganduje said.

He said the action is not enough to room the party in the coming elections, and that he is not scared of their exit.

“We are not scared by their exit. Their defection doesn’t constitute any havoc to our great party, the APC, at all levels. People should keep eyes to what will happen during election,” he said.

“Our dear President has been doing the needful in terms of developing the nation, coupled with his efforts in efficient service delivery. Good governance at its peak. The war against corruption is successfully being waged.”

The governor added that when Kwankwaso was in the APC, “his intention was to vie for presidency, but when it appeared to him, in black and white, that there is no vacancy in the Villa, he now decided to leave on his own.”

He said Kwankwaso is entitled to his political choice, but the result of the 2019 election would show how popular Buhari is.

“When he could secure a presidential ticket from the party he cross carpets, then he should wait and see how we can slug it out with him. He will fully understand how popular and loveable our President Muhammadu Buhari is,” he said.

“All chances of President Buhari, the party and our chances in Kano will not be affected because they leave the party.

“Kano will give more votes to our President, than what he got in 2015 election. From the 2015 election to date, those who could not vote because of age limit, are now grown up, meaning they will now be eligible to vote. Hence, Buhari stands the chance to get 5 million votes from Kano.”
