Ahead of the 2015 general election, Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso of Kano State has visited the Kogi State leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abubakar Audu, to solicit for his support and delegates of the party from the state to vote for him during the presidential primary election of the party.

A delegation of the ‘Nigeria Project 2015’, the presidential campaign organ of Kwankwaso, yesterday visited Audu in his residence in Lokoja, the Kogi State capital, where they held a closed-door meeting which lasted for five hours.

The leader of the delegation and Chairman of Fagge Local Government Area of Kano State, Hon. Habibu Sale Mohammed, who briefed journalists shortly after the meeting, said it was impressive and encouraging, stressing that: “When we get home, we are going to brief Kwankwaso that Kogi State APC is fully behind his aspiration to win the presidential ticket of the APC during the party primary election.”

According to him, “We are in Kogi State to meet with our leader, the former governor of state, Audu, and other stakeholders to sell the aspiration of Kwankwaso to the good people of APC and the entire Kogi State that come 2015, the Kano State governor is fully prepared to win the presidential election in the country.

“However, he had sent us to consult and meet leaders of the party across the country on the need to cast their vote for him during the primary election of the party. The governor has done well in the state and he wants to do the same for the country if given the mandate by Nigerians to become the next president of the country.”

He added that: “At present, Kano is one of the best states in the country as the governor has transformed it to a modern state where a lot of overhead bridges have been constructed; new state university, modern primary and secondary schools built; scholarship to students and reduction in youth unemployment among others.

“This is the type of person Nigerians need to lead them and I can tell you that our governor had delivered on all his campaign promises he made to the people of the state. He had eradicated drug abuse among the youths by recruiting many of them into the state traffic management agency and the state road maintenance agency.”

Mohammed then appealed to Nigerians to support the presidential aspiration of the Kano State governor, adding that: “He had done it in the state within three years in office as governor, he can do the same as president of Nigeria.”

Meanwhile, a delegation under the auspices of Kwankwaso Consultative Committee are in Yola, Adamawa State to canvass votes for Kwankwaso for the All Progressives Congress (APC) primary elections  around October, 2014 .

The Chairman of the Consultative Committee, Alhaji Nura Mohammed  Dankande,  while addressing journalists in Yola yesterday, said the committee had gone round the 21 local government areas of the state to make consultations with the APC stakeholders in the state to inform them of the presidential bid of Kwankwaso and canvass for their votes.

He noted that the feedback they received was positive and Adamawa APC stakeholders had agreed to support and vote for  the governor in coming APC’s primaries.

The chairman of the committee traced the need for all well-meaning  Nigerians to see the good virtue of Kwankwaso as the best man that is fit to govern the country

“Musa Kwankwaso has the qualities that Nigeria as a country needs, the country is in dare need of better hands that can deliver the dividends of democracy and there is no better man than Rabiu. He will put Nigeria in better shape,” he said.

The former lawmaker exposed the good heart and willing spirit of Kwankwaso to change the history of the country for the better, having  shown great and giants strides of his developmental project in Kano State, ranging from education, housings, roads, jobs, empowerment programmes and street lights, scholarships and flyovers.
