Governor of Kano State and Senator-elect for Kano Central, Engr. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso has identified lack of exposure in politics as the reason behind President Goodluck Jonathan’s poor showing in the March 28 presidential election.
According to him, the president believed anything people told him, including those he met at Motor Parks and airport.
Speaking to journalists at the Government House Kano, Monday, Governor Kwankwaso noted that President Jonathan had not been opportuned to stay and play a major role in national and international politics to understand who is who in the country.
“President Goodluck relied so much on hearsay from the people he met at airport and motor park station. If a person wore ‘abada’ with gold wristwatch on him, he can easily convince Mr. Jonathan.
“Looking at what obtained in Kano, everyone knew that myself and my followers are important, except Mr. President.
“Our biggest challenge in PDP then was that all our enemies were given leadership position in Abuja, while many of us who are in charge and have the confidence of the people were neglected and I believe it was as a result of wrong information our enemies were feeding Mr. President.
“To the extent that for me to get a ticket to contest governorship election in 2011 was a hell. But now, who has got the last laugh?” Kwankwaso asked.
