Governor Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso of Kano State said yesterday that residents will not welcome President Goodluck Jonathan today to the state.
The governor, who spoke in Kano, ahead of the president’s visit to the state, where he is expected to receive the former governor of the state – Malam Ibrahim Shekarau – to the Peoples Democratic Party fold, said Jonathan has done nothing to improve the peoples’ standard of living since he assumed office.
Kwankwaso said: “I regret voting for Jonathan in 2011. He has not done anything to move the nation forward.
“Only a few people are enjoying in Nigeria and this is at the expense of other citizens.
“We are still waiting to hear the truth about the alleged missing funds, which led to the suspension of former Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor Sanusi Lamido Sanusi.
“If someone alleges that N20 million is missing in one of our ministries, I will investigate the matter and if I find the allegation to be true, I must praise the person for a job well done and then take appropriate action”.
The governor enjoined the electorate to vote the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2015, saying the party is the most powerful party in Africa.
Kwankwaso also accused the PDP of buying members over, saying the APC has, however, taken measures to tackle the issue.
The governor appealed to APC supporters to exercise more patience as the party has put necessary machinery in place, which would ensure its victory in 2015.
He said those calling on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) not to conduct elections in the Northeast have lost focus.
