Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano State yesterday drew the battle line with politicians in the state who want to undermine the integrity of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The governor, who reacted for the first time to recent political developments in the state, said his administration believed in the change agenda of President Buhari and would resist any attempt to ridicule him.
Ganduje spoke when he inspected a feeder road built at Zango-Bela in Nassarawa Local Government, barely one week after his predecessor, Senator Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso, paid him a condolence visit on the death of his mother, Hajiya Fatima.
The condolence visit reportedly ended up in violence with accusations and counter-accusations traded between Senator Kwankwaso and the state chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, which vowed to sanction the former governor.
Continuing, Gov. Ganduje said his administration is at war with anyone claiming Kano indigeneship but fighting Buhari behind the scene.
According to him, his administration was ready to confront anyone who dared to challenge the president on Kano soil.
Ganduje said his administration did not believe in brandishing weapons to achieve its goals, adding that the only way to win the goodwill of the people was by treading the path of diplomacy.
