The ongoing political warfare between between President Goodluck Jonathan of Nigeria and Governor Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso of Kano State yesterday took a new twist as few hours after the PDP rally the governor alongside his cabinet swept off the venue where President had held his rally.
Also, speaking at the second matriculation ceremony of the North West University, which held few hours after President Jonathan’s allegation that Governor Kwankwaso had embezzled campaign funds in 2011, the governor asked if Jonathan was referring to money given his predecessor in eight years or given to him in four years.
"Some were asking what happened with Kano state money; which of the money – was that for eight years or for four years? If he was asking about that of four years he should go to North West University, if you want to know what we have done with the money go to University of Technology, Wudil, Government College, and if you wants that of four go round the Kano state, visit our local governments", Kwankwaso said.
Speaking further the Governor said, "At a time when several innocent lives have been lost, when many of the victims are in hospital seeking blood donations to survive, the president is gallivanting round the country in the name of PDP unity rally".
"The man came to Kano to smear our image but thank God, the man gave me free publicity by mentioning my name over 50 times in a 15 minute address. The President, his Vice and the Secretary to the Government of the Federation are vultures. They want the PDP to die and feast on its carcass".
"Supposing I decide to contest for the number one seat in this country, I will beg APC, APGA and Labour Party not cast their votes for me – I want to assure you that with the PDP vote that I will garner, definitely I will defeat the incumbent President hands down", Kwankwaso added.
