Governor of Kano State, Alhaji Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso has said that he would find it very easy to beat President Goodluck Jonathan during the 2015 elections, if he wins the presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“I have contested elections 12 times, I won 11 times, and lost only one from the ward, local government, state and national assembly level,” he boasted while speaking with journalists in Ilorin ahead of the APC governors’ meeting in the Kwara State capital.
According to him, power of incumbency does little or nothing in ensuring a candidate wins elections these days. He gave an example as Dr Kayode Fayemi’s loss in Ekiti.
While talks about adopting a consensus candidate is making rounds in the party, Kwankwaso expressed determination to see his quest to emerge as the candidate of the APC to the end, saying he had no plan to step down for anybody. He said he is the most qualified for the job.
Kwankwaso has General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd), former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and Alhaji Nda Isaiah to compete with in his quest to become the flag bearer of the APC for the 2015 presidential election.
