Word out is that Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano State has promised to deliver 5 million votes for President Buhari in 2019.
Ganduje said this while swearing in 44 new local government council Chairmen, and 484 councillors, Vanguard reports.
According to him, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has made great impact in Kano state.
The Governor also warned the newly sworn-in local government chairmen against mismanagement of funds.
He 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.
“We have seen in this election was a clear indication that Kano is APC and ready to contribute to its success any time.”
“You will be given free hands to operate in your respective council, but whoever sidesteps his bound will pay a price,” Ganduje added.
Also, in a bid to proffer a solution to the crisis between Fulani herdsmen and farmers, Governor Umar Ganduje has asked herdsmen to relocate to Kano state.
According to the Governor, his state has enough land for the herdsmen to graze.
