The Kano State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has endorsed President Muhammadu Buhari and the incumbent state governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, as its candidates for the 2019 presidential and governorship elections respectively.
Ganduje said the party made the resolution at its stakeholders’ meeting, which had in attendance his deputy, Prof. Hafizu Abubakar; the state APC Chairman, Abdullahi Abbas; Governor Muhammed Abubakar of Jigawa State; and other members of the party executive.
The governor also said the party was prepared to institute a legal action to compel the President to accept a second term ticket.
President Buhari did not, however, accept or decline the endorsement, notwithstanding the party leadership promising to procure the nomination form for him.
According to the President, he understood the clamour by the “ordinary people in the streets, who raised four fingers on each arm.”
