Kano’s Gov Yusuf attributes political travails to Kwankwaso’s detractors

Kano State governor, Abba Kabir Yusuf, has attributed what he called his political travails to schemes against his political godfather, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso.

The governor believes his losses at both the Kano Elections Petition Tribunal and the Court of Appeal were all planned to subvert the rising political popularity of Kwankwaso.

He said this on Sunday during a stakeholders meeting of the Kwankwasiyya Movement in Kano.

The meeting, which was held at the instance of Kwankwaso, also had in attendance the state deputy governor, Comrade Aminu Abdussalam, Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Ismail Falgore; federal lawmaker for Kiru/Bebeji constituency, Abdulmumin Jibrin Kofa, leaders of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), Kano State cabinet members and top government officials.

“Like it was explained, we are going to continue working under his (Kwankwaso) guidance and leadership to do the needful, God willing. But we must appreciate him (Kwankwaso) and be immensely grateful to him and we have to tell him that we are really proud of him.

“Even if the world says they are not going to give us anything because of his (Kwankwaso) vision, we are not going to turn our back on him and his vision,” he said.

Yusuf, while charging the party leaders not to lose hope, urged them not to exchange bitter words with anyone but to channel their energy to motivating Kano people.

He pledged continue to with all the people-centered projects he has started, including assisting women and children and the settlement of pensions and gratuity.
