The Governor of Kano state, Abdullahi Ganduje, has revealed why he was in support of the removal of former All Progressive Congress (APC) chairman, John Oyegun
According to the Kano governor, the former APC chairman marginalised him and his people
Ganduje made this statement while receiving the national organising secretary of the APC, Emma Ibediro at his office.
He said the bad experience he had with Oyegun was why he was happy to see the back of him.
“During the previous administration, we were marginalised and our opponents within the party were used officially against us. That was very painful,” he said.
“We decided to effect a change and luckily, Mr. President, who is the national leader of the party, gave his consent to what we wanted to do.
“We are now benefitting from the change in the leadership of the party and we are witnessing full participation of stakeholders in the scheme of things.”
Ibidero on his part said he was in the state to thank Ganduje for the role he played in getting him into his position
“My emergence as national organizing secretary was largely made possible by you. Kano state gave me over 500 votes and with that kind of result, it was nearly impossible for me to be defeated,” he said.
“I went round with you in the bus and I saw genuine love for you from the people: you have done well. You were able to connect with the people genuinely and God will reward you.
“I assure you that whatever has to do with Kano state as long as it has to do with me, I will give it the attention it requires.”
