Former Governor of Kano state, Rabiu Kwankwaso, has stated that he has the capacity to defeat President Buhari in the upcoming elections.
Kwankwaso is a Presidential aspirant who will be running under the umbrella of the PDP
He was interviewed by Channels Television and there he said that he is lucky to be from Kano as it is a densely populated area with a lot of voters.
Speaking about his ambitions, he said: “PDP is a better PDP now. Talking about who is the best, who has the capacity to defeat the incumbent, who can run the government even after the election, where we have peace, stability, development, good infrastructure, human development and so on – in my opinion, you are just talking about Rabiu Kwankwaso,” he said.
“Politics, as you know, is a game of numbers. I’m so lucky to come from Kano where we have the largest number of people going by the last census in this country and also the most popular zone.
“I am also lucky that in Kano State, we have huge followership, people who are committed because they believe in us and they believe that if we succeed, they will also succeed,” he said.
Kwankwaso also took shots at Buhari’s government, stating that it was what led Nigeria into a recession.
“The mistake that this administration did, in my own opinion, was that they wasted five, six months without any government structures, especially in the issues of ministers and other important appointments.
“In other words, people went to sleep for five – six months in this country and that was why in 2016, we had to go into recession because everybody was sleeping, doing nothing.
“And I can tell you, in 2011, when I was elected, we were able to inaugurate our state assembly and get the names of our commissioners, within one week. And within that same week, we had our first executive council meeting. And we were working until the last day,”
