The APC caucus noted that no amount of “blackmail and subterfuge can obliterate the excellent work that his Excellency, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has done and is still doing in Kano State”.
Briefings journalists at the National Assembly, yesterday, the lawmakers said, they are “bold to say that the leadership of His Excellency, Dr Ganduje has brought unprecedented socio-economic development to Kano State such as never experienced.”
According to them,”As major stakeholders in Kano State, we hereby state unequivocally that, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has performed creditably well in the saddle of captainship of the state and has therefore earned our unalloyed support and vote of confidence.”

Dr Ganduje who came into office when a lot of factors seemed terribly against the tide of permeance for any state Chief Executive, especially the factor of economic downturn typified by the huge slide in the size of Federal Allocations accruable to the states, shocked many with his outstanding achievements in the various sectors ranging from infrastructural development to human capital development among others.
All hands must therefore be on deck to support Governor Ganduje to win his reelection in 2019 in order to continue his good works in the state.”
While warning President Muhammadu Buhari to be wary of “roamers in the corridors of power”, the lawmakers disclosed that those people “are more interested in their own personal ambition rather than the collective success of the Buhari Administration have keyed into this devilish scheme not only to undermine His Excellency, Dr Ganduje but also to throw spanners into the electoral fortunes of Mr President as far as Kano State politics is concerned”.
They, however, vowed to deliver more than 5 million votes they initially promised president Buhari.
