Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano State has revealed that he told the Presidency that his state was peaceful and happy with his victory at the Governorship election.
The governor said this while speaking with State House correspondents after a meeting with the Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, The Nation reports.
Ganduje also described the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as a bad loser in elections.
On why he met with Kyari over the weekend, Ganduje said, “I came to consult with the Chief of Staff that Kano is peaceful, people are jubilating and I am happy to inform him that everything is normal.”
Speaking on the petition by the PDP to challenge his victory at the Election Petitions Tribunal, the Kano governor said that it was common for the PDP to go to tribunal.
“Well we are waiting for them; we know that they are not good losers anyway. So, it is common to go to the tribunal, we are ready to meet them because the first election they committed a lot of fraud, a lot of irregularities and the Supplementary election was fair and free.
“It was carried out in 28 local government areas, they didn’t win a single local government out of the 28, so that is paining them a lot. So we are ready to go to the tribunal.”
