Chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party and former governor of Kano state, Rabiu Kwankwaso, has given reasons why he wants his son-in-law, to be the next governor in Kano state.
A presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, has said that he wants Abba Yusuf (pictured left), his son-in-law, to succeed Abdullahi Ganduje, the incumbent governor, because Yusuf performed well when he served as a commissioner under him.
According to TheCable, the former governor of Kano state, said Yusuf, who was commissioner of works, discharged his role well enough and was actually behind most of the projects of his government.
The lawmaker listed the Kano Kofar Nassarawa flyover among the projects, adding that the projects designed by Yusuf were far better than the ones under Abdullahi Ganduje, his successor.
Although Ganduje served as Kwankwaso’s deputy for eight years, both men have been having a running battle.
NAN qouted him to have said:-
“Today most projects being executed by Ganduje are not durable and are of low standard while heavy amounts was spent on them, but our projects which mostly were designed and executed by Abba Kabir Yusuf are today standing firm in Kano”.
Kwankwaso, who spent just one hours, appealed to his supporters to resolve issues among them amicably.
“I’m in Kano to see you and say thank you for the brotherhood and progressive unity we enjoy as kwankwasiyya members. Certainly we will sit and talk on vital issues affecting us,” he said.
“If not that I’m highly busy and rushing to go back to Abuja for the Presidential screening going on right now, I will have love to sit down and discuss vital issues with you. But I promise to come back and have a special sessions with you.”
Top members of Kwankwasiyya Movement, a group loyal to him, who attended the meeting, were Adamu Dangwani, his former chief of staff, and Aminu Abdussalam, a former commissioner.
