Kwankwaso was speaking with journalists in Maiduguri on Wednesday after commiserating with his Borno State counterpart – Alhaji Kashim Shettima and donating the sum of N20 million on behalf of the people and Government of Kano State over the Boko Haram crisis that has left Borno in a perpetual state of turmoil.
He said: “For now, we are walking around the clock to ensure peace and stability in our state, and security in the entire region. But I want to assure Nigerians that as a team player, when the time comes, I will make my intentions known.
“I am not the kind of person who goes about blowing his trumpet any how. My brother, the Borno State governor has showered so much praises about my humble self to the extent that I wanted to stop him. But probably that is what a true friend and brother should do to a friend telling the world that this is the quality that makes one thick.”
Earlier, Shettima had hailed Kwankwaso as the most versatile Nigerian governor having served as a federal lawmaker, a former Presidential Adviser on crisis-ridden Darfur region, a former Minister of Defence and a governor with uncommon spirit of sportsmanship who conceded defeat to an opposition candidate without going to court.
