APC Presidential hopeful and Governor of Kano state, Alhaji Rabiu Kwankwaso, yesterday urged the Governors of Jigawa and Niger States, Sule Lamido and Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu, to have a rethink and join the All Progressives Congress (APC) to save the country from the security challenges bedeviling it.
Addressing a mammoth crowd at a zonal rally and the inauguration of the North-west National Executive Committee (NEC) of the APC held at the Trade Fair Complex in Sokoto yesterday, Kwankwaso advised the governors of Jigawa, Niger, Kebbi and Kaduna States to leave the PDP, saying the party had failed Nigerians. He believes that Jigawa and Niger States governors would soon join the APC.
“I am calling on the G7 governors that we started this journey and movement together, especially Lamido and Aliyu to leave the PDP and join us.
“We have been meeting and sharing ideas with Kaduna State Governor, Ramalan Yero, and as such, we are calling on our brothers to come back home because this is where they belong,” Kwankwaso said.
He also said that for a very long time, the Nation has had no credible leadership at the centre and the APC could provide this.
He averred that PDP would be humiliated in the North-west and would become history in 2015, assuring the crowd that people would be adequately mobilised in the zone in order to wrest power from the PDP.
The governor said the APC was determined to show the PDP the exit door and relocate it to the archives in 2015.
“PDP has been ruling Nigeria for 16 years but left this country in ruins with insecurity challenges ravaging the North. We have the numbers and the large population to give us the required votes and we are ready to mobilise our people in the North-west to humiliate PDP in the 2015 polls.
The highlight of the Rally however was the absence of General Muhamadu Buhari. his absence was not explained.
