2019: Ganduje Assures President Buhari Of 5 Million Votes
Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State is confident that his state will deliver five million votes to President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 presidential election
Ganduje's confidence was informed by the stunning victory posted by the All Progressives Congress (APC) during last Saturday's local council elections in the state.
The party's candidates won with 2,677,469 votes. The total votes cast during the council elections was higher than what the President got in the 2015 presidential election.
The Governor who spoke during the swearing in ceremony of the 44 new local government council Chairmen and 484 councillors noted that the rise in votes for APC was a direct impact of the party’s laudable policies.
Ganduje said: “The overall number of votes scored by the APC candidates is more than what President Buhari scored in 2015 general election, that is to say that if eventually he agreed to contest 2019 general election, I assured you, we will give you 5 million votes.”
He stressed that “we have seen in this election that Kano is APC and ready to contribute to its success any time."
Turning to the elected council officials, Ganduje warned them to tread softly on the common patrimony, as he warned that any one caught pilfering and mismanaging would pay a price.
The Governor said the 2018 local government budget has been approved by the state House of Assembly, and therefore must operate within the limit of the provision. He warned “you will be given free hands to operate in your respective council, but whoever sidesteps his bound will pay a price”
Ganduje charged them to work with relevant stakeholders within and outside their domain.
