Abdullahi Ganduje, governor of Kano, says President Muhammadu Buhari will be sued if he does not seek re-election in 2019.

Speaking with journalists in Abuja on Friday, Ganduje said all the governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) want Buhari to continue in office.

The governor explained that there is nothing wrong in the president seeking a “constitutional second term”.

“APC governors want Mr President to continue. I am happy that it is not the president that said he wants to continue, it is the people that are saying continue but Mr President has not made up his mind yet,” he said.

“When he came to Kano, I told him that any time he decides not to contest, we will take him to court. Kano state government will take him to court any time he decides not to contest. So we are waiting for him.

“In this country, we saw presidents who spent billions of naira for third term, so what is the ruse about a constitutional second term? Some people spent billions of naira in order to go for third term.”

The governor said he was part of those who kicked against the tenure extension of John Oyegun, national chairman of the APC, and other party executives because it is against the party’s constitution.

“So for those who thought they would be able to continue, we said no and so I think Mr President finally hit the nail on the head, by saying that he is not in favour of any tenure elongation,” Ganduje said.

“Tenure elongation is undemocratic, it may lead us to litigation which will not be good for the party and we are happy that we have convinced the few governors that were for the elongation and on Monday we hope to have our NEC meeting where the previous decision will be reversed.

“By then timetable will be out for congresses at the ward level, congress at local government level, congress at the state level and finally convention at the national level.”

The governor said he would seek another term in office because people are also urging him to do so.

“I am convinced that I too will seek for second term and people are also urging me to do so. Eventually, it will be left to the people to decide whether I am well qualified or not,” he said.
