Ganduje was just confused, can’t look at me directly – Kwankwaso

Presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party and former governor of Kano Rabiu Kwankwaso has called the bluff of Ganduje who said he would’ve slapped him at the Presidential Villa.


“I heard that he (Ganduje) said he would’ve slapped me, but I’m here. He was just confused. These are all my boys politically. They can’t even look at me straight on the face if we meet. He was in a confused state when he said that these my political boys if they see me, they lower their gaze,” Kwankwaso said.

Kwankwaso told the BBC Hausa Service in an interview monitored on Saturday morning, that he met with President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for about 2 hours at the Presidential Villa and was able to convince him on the alleged land deals and other infractions of the Ganduje administration in Kano state.

Kwankwaso added that the President was so “surprised with the revelations.”

The Presidential candidate of the NNPP alleged that Ganduje had among others, allocated lands at the Kano Racecourse to his friends and family members, a development that now made it hard for people who wanted to indulge in sporting activities and other exercises, to find a place.

According to him, even the Eid praying ground where Muslims converged to pray during Sallah, was not sparred by Ganduje who had allegedly allowed shops to be built round the holy place where the Emir and many other important dignitaries had prayed, thereby compromising the security of the Eid Prayer ground.
