Kano Governor Tells Visiting Wike He Will Lose Kano In The 2023 Presidential Election
Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike visited his Kano counterpart to solicit support for his 2023 Presidential aspiration.
Governor Of Kano State Abdullahi Ganduje has made it clear to visiting Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike, that he will lose the 2023 presidency.
Nyesom Wike who is a presidential hopeful of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) visited Kano State on Monday and then make a stopover at Abdullahi Ganduje, a member of the ruling party All Progressive Congress(APC).
Wike during his visit seeks support from Ganduje to support his 2023 presidential aspiration.
Ganduje responded saying, “So, you have come to see your brothers and sisters. Good. You are aspiring for the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“We see your efforts. And at the end of it, you’d lose, but you’ll be a good loser. I appreciate good losers because they have courage. And since you are doing it peacefully, you’ll live long to fight again. I congratulate you, Mr ‘Wise’ Wike. Thank you and God bless.”
It’s in the public domain of the frosty relationship between the two during the Edo governorship election, Wike taunted Ganduje, saying he could not influence the Edo governorship election with his ”dollars”.
“Yesterday, I was told and today I read on the pages of newspapers that one Governor Ganduje said that he is going to isolate me until the election is over,” the governor had said.
“If Nigeria is supposed to be a country, who is supposed to be isolated? A man who pockets dollars in ‘babanriga’ from contractors is not isolated and you say that I should be isolated. In this country, where are we heading to?
“Let me tell you why they [APC] made Ganduje the chairman of the campaign council – it is because of the dollars they saw.
“What he doesn’t understand is that we are from the Niger Delta; we shall chop his dollar and we will chop him to a coma. So, Ganduje, your dollar will not work in Edo State, we have integrity in our party.”
