Kano state governor, Mr. Umar Ganduje, and his predecessor, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, are presently engaging themselves in a battle of supremacy, Nigerian Concord learnt.

The Kano state governor, according to investigation, has now threatened to expose all the corruption that took place during former governor Kwankwaso’s administration.

It would be recaled that Governor Ganduje was deputy governor to Kwankwaso in 1999 to 2003 and also in 2011 to 2015.

Governor Ganduje was severally quoted as saying that several shady deals took place during his predecessor’s reign as governor in Kano state. He was also said to have reportedly said that he was ready to send all the files that contain Kwankwaso”s fraudulent deals to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) within a week if he (Kwankwaso) doesn’t stop battling him for supremacy in the state.

Nigerian Concord learnt that both Ganduje and Kwankwaso had been embroiled in a row lately, with each accusing the other of creating crisis in the ruling All Progressives Congress.

On his own, Ganduje said his former boss who is now a senator at the Upper Chambers of the National Assembly had come to Kano state several times to look for a replacement for President Mohammadu Buhari in 2019.

Governor Ganduje was quoted to have said: “Kwankwaso was in Kano to campaign for President Muhammadu Buhari’s replacement while there is no vacancy for that position. He had shortchanged people of the state when he was governor but Kano people will always resist any attempt by anyone to shortchange them again.

“Yes we knew the genuine projects including the shoddy ones which I will not tolerate by exposing them for people to judge his action.

“Unfortunately for him the avenue and the time were so wrong. But because God wants to expose his antics which he has been doing against the president, he chose my mother’s death to launch the presidential campaign, but we leave him with the people”.
