Buhari is healthier than Jonathan- Kwankwaso

Buhari is healthier than Jonathan- Kwankwaso

Governor Rabiu
Kwankwaso, of Kano State has stated that the
Presidential candidate of the All
Progressives Congress, Muhammadu
Buhari is in a better health condition
than President Goodluck Jonathan
and is therefore, fit to rule Nigeria.
Mr. Buhari, a former Head of State
and Retired General of the Nigerian
Army, is presently on a working visit
to the United Kingdom.

His campaign office had issued a
statement Thursday saying in the
course of the visit, Mr. Buhari will
hold meetings with key members of
the British political establishment and
interact with some global institutions
with interest in the affairs of Nigeria.

“General Buhari would hopefully
give a talk at the prestigious foreign
policy hub, the Royal Institute of
International Affairs, Chatam House
in London, the spokesperson for his
campaign, Garba Shehu, said.

However, there has been wide
speculation by supporters of the
ruling Peoples Democratic Party, that
Mr. Buhari was actually ferried out to
receive medical attention because his
health was failing.
The Kano governor who had a chat
with newsmen in Kano on Sunday
said Mr. Buhari has no health
challenges.

“By my judgement, since we finished
our party primary elections, he is
sound, hale and fit to rule this
country.

“In fact I feel he is healthier than the
incumbent occupier of the seat
because he went to all the states on
campaigns in addition to other
engagements that come in between,”
he said.
Mr. Kwankwaso also accused the
Federal government and the ruling
PDP of sharing money to win the
presidential election fixed for March
28.

He said money alone cannot give
success in the forthcoming elections.
“The Federal Government and the
PDP can use all the money in the
treasury to bribe whoever they want,
but God, the Almighty, has his own
way of doing things.

“Power belongs to Him not to those
with money or who control security
agencies. Nigerians are wiser,” he
said.

On his stewardship as governor, Mr. Kwankwaso
said every state governor can work to develop their
states unless if they chose to steal instead.

“People are surprised and many are asking
questions that where did we get the money to do
these projects we are doing in Kano. But the truth
of the matter is that – you cannot steal and
perform. It is the money for projects that people
steal that is why they are not performing. In Kano
we don’t steal,” he said.
He enumerated some of the landmark projects he
undertook in the state to include the award of an
Independent Power Project at Tiga and Challawa-
Gorge Dam at the cost of N14.2BN, establishment
of one garment factory in each of the 44 local
governments in the state and the establishment of a
Micro Finance bank also in each of the 44 local
governments.
Mr. Kwankwaso also said 44 Schools for Islamic
Studies and 44 Technical Schools were built in the
state.

“These were with a view to ensure that all our
children that finished primary school get space to
proceed to have post-primary education

“I feel so fulfilled that our governments as been
able to encourage Kano people to accord education
the priority it deserves,” he said.
