Kwankwaso and I are political brothers –Ganduje

FROM JULIANA TAIWO-OBALONYE, ABUJA

GOVERNOR Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano State has said he and his predecessor Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso are political broth­ers who were working hard to end their differences for the good of the state.
The governor who said he was in the State House to brief President Muhammadu Buhari on a number of issues affecting the state includ­ing security, cattle rustling, agri­culture among others, noted that Kano recorded 100 per cent vote for the All Progressives Congress (APC) during the last presidential elections, hence they will do all to maintain peace in the state.
Both Ganduje and Kwankwaso, it will be recalled had taken their political rivalry to another dimen­sion with the former threatening to expose the latter.
The duo have been at logger­heads, with Kwankwaso being accused of inciting violence at the burial of Ganduje’s mother, in the presence of members of the APC. Ganduje, who served as deputy governor under Kwankwaso for eight years, had threatened to ex­pose illicit deals carried out by his former boss.
The Governor who assured that he will continue to wear the red cap made popular by his former boss when asked to speak on the row be­tween him and Kwankwaso said, “ The situation is under control, it is an in-house problem which is un­der control. We are talking about it.
“Yes, reconciliation is ongoing and it will work. We have been to­gether for long, we are politically brothers and friends. Therefore, we will make sure that we don’t allow things to continue to fall apart.
“Kano is the most populous state in the country. Kano was the one that provided the highest number of votes for the President. Kano is the state that has 100 percent APC in which ever elected posts you can think of. We shall put heads togeth­er to make sure that there is peace and stability in the state”.
On his discussion with the President, Ganduje said, “ I briefed the President about the security situation in Kano, in par­ticular cattle rustling and kidnap­ping which is under control. We talked about the amnesty pack­age extended to those that have decided to be born again and the empowerment programme for them and how we are helping the police in order to arrest the situ­ation.
“We talked about irrigation, es­pecially the production of wheat with dry farming. Now, we are getting ready for the production of rice. So Kano State is provid­ing an enabling environment for farmers, cutting off the middle­men, the farmers are getting the best out of it”.
