I regret voting for Jonathan – Kwankwaso
Governor Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso of Kano State has expressed regrets for voting for President Goodluck Jonathan in the 2011 general elections.
Kwankwaso, who spoke during the APC Elders meeting on Sunday, lamented that the president has disappointed Nigerians.
He said Jonathan, who is billed to be in the state today to formally receive Ibrahim Shekarau into the PDP, is not welcome.
“Kano people will
not welcome the president because he has done nothing to make life better for them. I regret voting President Goodluck Jonathan in 2011, as he has done nothing to move the nation forward,” he said.
The governor added that since Jonathan assumed office, “corruption, insecurity and embezzlement of funds have been on the increase”.
“Only a few people are enjoying in Nigeria at the expense of the generality of the citizenry,” Kwankwaso said.
He further expressed hope that election would hold in the Northeast in 2015, saying “anyone who advocates no election in the region is irrational”.
He said people are still waiting to hear the truth about the mismanaged funds, which led to the suspension of CBN governor, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi.
He called on electorate to vote for APC in 2015, adding that the party is now the most powerful in Africa.
Kwankwaso, who alleged that the PDP is planning to disrupt the party by deploying money to buy people over, said already the APC has taken measures to tackle the issue.
