According to a press statement issued by the Director of Press and Public Relations to the Governor, Halilu Ibrahim Dantiye, Kwankwaso stated this at the weekend, saying, “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 governor added that since 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 today’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 the 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.
