The Kano state chapter of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, has endorsed President Muhammadu Buhari as its candidate for the 2019 general elections and threatened to sue him if he declines.
According to a statement by presidential spokesman, Malam Garba Shehu, the APC leaders made the promise at a meeting held on the margins of the President’s state visit to Kano on Thursday.
The statement further disclosed that the leadership of the party and other prominent members also expressed their commitment and support to Governor Abdullahi Ganduje as their sole candidate for 2019.
The presidential spokesman revealed that the State Chairman of the APC, Alhaji Inuwa Abbas, hinged the endorsement of the president on his achievements in the last two years, especially in the fields of security, the war against corruption and the restructuring of the economy.
“Security is important for everyone, not just for Borno, Yobe and Adamawa states.
“It’s even more so for us as a commercial and industrial state.
”We are convinced that you are best for these times when the country has begun to muster energy and resources to develop agriculture, infrastructure and empower the younger citizens.”
