Group condemns Jonathan’s allegations on Gov Kwankwaso
Coalition of youths and students in Kano State yesterday, condemned the allegations leveled against Governor Rabiu Musa Kwankawso of Kano by President Goodluck Jonathan.
The group said youths in the state are satisfied with the level of development brought to the state by the present administration.
The statement jointly signed by the secretary general, National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), Comrade Ali Abdullahi Lamma, chairman Kano chapter of National Youth Council of Nigeria, Comrade Abdulhadi Zubairu Chula, director mobilization, Kano State Youth Stakeholder’s forum, Balarabe Rufa’i among four others stated that the President’s action during his visit to Kano breached Nigeria’s electoral Act. They called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to spell out appropriate sanctions on the President for publically admitting offering bribe and gratification to delegates through his campaign office in Abuja.
“The allegations leveled against Kano State governor are baseless and we are satisfied with the level of achievements recorded so far. However, it is imperative to note that, President Jonathan has openly confessed to have offered bribe and gratification to delegates an act considered as a breach of electoral Act. Therefore, it is expected that INEC chairman, Professor Attahiru Jega should spell out appropriate sanctions on the President”, the group said.
