Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje has asked his political opponents accusing him of sleeping at public functions to differentiate between sleep and pretense.

He stated this during an interactive session with labour unions as part of the May Day celebration at the Government House, Kano.‎

“My opponents always complain that I sleep at public functions but I want them to try and differentiate between the two.

”Political blackmail is not an issue to me because I am used to it and will continue to work for the good people of the state,” he said.‎

The governor’s critics had been accusing him of sleeping in most public functions.

Perhaps when next the governor attends a public function, he should not 'pretend' to be sleeping.
