The National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole has endorsed Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, for a second term in office.
This is despite the allegations of bribery and corruption leveled against him by online news medium, Daily Nigerian.
Recall that the medium released three footages, which showed the governor receiving monetary kickbacks from contractors.
Ganduje has however denied the allegations.
Endorsing the governor, Oshiomhole said all corrupt politicians that “are regrouping into one political party fold will not escape jail.
“I have said it before that progressive Nigerians will reason positively on how things has been going under APC and realign with us. That’s why Mr Ibrahim Shekarau and others reunited back into the APC.
“Those that don’t have the fear of God and cope with President Buhari’s administration are those that are united in looting public treasury, are now regrouping back to PDP, they have no hiding place. They must face the wrath of the law and we will keep them where thieves are kept.”
In his speech, the governor said he will give President Muhammadu Buhari five million votes in 2019.
He said, “Even a blind person will notice a progressive change is in place in terms of infrastructural development in the metropolitan city and the rural areas.
“APC administration in Kano is in harmony with religious clerics, traditional leaders, business people, youth and others social groups in the state.”
Ganduje is expected to battle 21 others opposition candidates including a female candidate in the election.
