Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano State has urged the people of Dambatta and Makoda Local Government Areas to vote for the APC governorship candidate in the state, Dr.Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna, and his running mate, Hon. Murtala Sule Garo, as the next Governor and Deputy Governor of the state, to enable continuity in governance.
Ganduje who made the call at a mammoth Gawuna/Garo campaign rally at Dambatta on Friday, said electing the APC flagbearers in the forthcoming governorship election in the state would enable them to continue with the laudable programmes of his administration.
He said Gawuna and Garo had been part and parcel of the conception and implementation of the sound programmes of the Ganduje Administration over the years, and were therefore, eminently qualified to be elected as the next Governor and Deputy Governor of the state in order to sustain the programmes.
Governor Ganduje who is also the APC leader in the state described Gawuna and Garo as the best candidates for governor and deputy governor for the state in view of their impressive records of performance in the various public offices they had held.
“I hereby present to you for election, our APC governorship candidate, Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna, a former Chairman of Nasarawa Local Government, a two-time Commissioner and two-time Deputy Governor of the state, and his running mate, Murtala Sule Garo, as the best candidates for governor and deputy governor for the state, whose experiences in governance and party politics are unmatchable,” he told the crowd.
He then asked the gathering to vote for the APC Senatorial candidate for Kano North, Barau Jibrin, as well as candidates for the House of Representatives and State Assembly from the area, to enable the people to continue to reap the dividends of democracy.
Ganduje also asked them to vote for the APC Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and His Running Mate, Senator Kashim Shettima, to become the next President and Vice President of Nigeria, respectively, saying that they have the capacity to transform Nigeria.
In his remarks, the APC Standard Flagbearer in the state, Dr.Nasiru Gawuna, said as a disciple of His Excellency Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, he would run an open government, if elected as the next Governor of the state, adding that electoral victory comes from God.
Gawuna stated that from all indications they would emerge victorious in the forthcoming general elections, and urged the people of the area to massively vote for him and the other APC candidates during the polls.
Earlier, the state Chairman of the APC, Prince Abdullahi Abbas, said the mammoth crowd that received the Gawauna/Garo campaign train in the area was an indication that the APC would win all the elective positions in the forthcoming general elections.
Highlights of the rally included the reception of the ADP candidate for the House of Representatives for the Dambatta/Makoda federal constituency, Sani Buhari Ubanta, and an NNPP stalwart in the area, Mansur Haruna, who defected to the APC.
They were received into the party by Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, amidst resounding ovations from the large crowd of party supporters and officials.
