KANO POLITICS: Ganduje, Abba underserved for the governorship, Says Naajatu Muhd.



Adamu Aminu, Kano.

In less than 36 hours to conduct gubernatorial and state assemblies elections across the federation.

Cross-sections of Nigerians are coming up with suggestions based on their political perspectives on the right candidates to elect in the forthcoming election slated to hold on 9th March.

In Kano, the known firebrand and outspoken politician, Haj. Naajatu Mohammed has pointedly suggested that Kano people should not vote for Governor Ganduje and PDP Abba Kabir Yusif.

Haj. Najaatu made the revelation in a telephone interview with a reporter from Abuja.

She said it is very disheartening that people in Kano are trapped in a vicious dilemma of who to vote out of these two undeserved prominent contenders, Ganduje and Abba.

“Ganduje is yet not fit to give another chance, he was glaringly embroiled in bribery-taking scandal, and he refuses to come openly to refute or apologised for the allegations and choose to remain silent,” she added.

Moreso, she noted that people should be reminded that Kwankwaso and Ganduje are the same birds, equally sharing the same feathers and flocking together for long.

“While PDP candidate in Kano, Abba Kabir Yusif is reared Kwankwaso puppet, whoever elect him, voted indirectly for Kwankwaso, in fact, they are politically unwarranted to be elected, nothing fresh will come up in giving them Kano people’s mandate” she suggested.

Najaatu Mohd asserts that it is very worrisome that politics nowadays are overtaken by mere liking or blind loyalty of candidates, not for competency.

“One has to be hypocritical, double-faced and Corporate beggar to survive, more especially from corrupt-tainted leaders” She assured.

Adding that those who preferred to continue living in destitution, political and youth banditry, poor medical facilities and substandard educational system does so at their own peril, but those willing to reverse the adversity, the time has come.

“Cast your ballots to vote out corrupt and incompetent candidates” she sternly suggests.

Najaatu Mohammed advised Kano electorates to consider Integrity and decorum to electing those who lead Kano to the path of the promising future.

SSS Arrests Anti-Ganduje Social Media Critic



Salisu Hotoro, a critic of the governor of Kano State governor Abdullahi Ganduje and supporter of Kwankwasiyya movement, has been arrested.

Mr Hotoro was picked by the operatives of the State Security Service, SSS, in his Hotoro home on Thursday.

Sources disclosed that he was arrested for allegedly casting aspersions on a former managing director of Nigerian Ports Authority, Aminu Dabo.

The former managing director of NPA drew the ire of the Kwankwasiyya supporters when he reportedly claimed that he “takes care” of Kwankwasiyya supporters before his defection to APC.

Sanusi Dawakin-Tofa, spokesman for Kano State gubernatorial candidate of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Abba Yusuf, confirmed Mr Hotoro’s arrest on his Facebook page, saying he was arrested by the SSS.

“Salisu Yahaya Hotoro, a member of my team and a social media activist faithful to Kwankwasiyya movement in Kano has been arrested by the men of DSS in Kano.

“Salisu was humiliated and chained at both his legs and hands then taken away to an unknown destination.

“We condemn this intimidation on the opposition as an act of impunity from the enemies of democracy,” Mr Dawakin-Tofa wrote.

Mr Dawakin-Tofa disclosed that all efforts by the Kwankwasiyya group to know Mr Hotoro’s whereabouts proved futile.

While condemning the arrest, the spokesman alleged that the development was a plot by the state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje and the All Progressives Congress, APC to launch onslaught on him and some Kwankwasiyya social media activists.

He vowed that the intimidation would not deter the opposition from criticising President Muhammadu Buhari and Mr Ganduje over alleged injustice meted to them in the re-run election.

The state Director of SSS, Alhasan Mohammed, could not be reached at at the time of filing in this report as his mobile number was not reachable.

Mr Hotoro was previously arrested and charged to court late last year.
