2019: Rabiu Kwankwaso Jubilate Over Increased Support.

Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, has on Wednesday, stated that he has now gathered more supporters in Kano, and in the entire Northern region, ahead of the 2019 general elections.

While speaking to some selected Journalists, Kwankwaso dropped a hint on President Muhammadu Buhari and 2019.

He said: “If he is going for second time, there is no problem, because (the fact that) somebody is in the hospital doesn’t mean somebody who is outside is healthier than him. It is the decision of Allah, and nobody can fault it.”

Kwankwaso who dodged questions on the rift between him and his successor in Kano, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, said he had more supporters in Kano, more than ever.

“This is not the time to talk on Kano, the time will come… I now have more supporters in my Constituency, Kano, and even in the entire North, more than before”, he said.

Denying his defection speculation, Kwankwaso, who came second in the Presidential primaries of the APC, said the party was fair to him, hence, there was no need to dump it for another.

On whether the National Assembly had powers to introduce new projects in budget, he said the document must be looked at.

“The National Assembly is not a photocopier. It needs to look at the figure and issues. If you take the Constituencies of the entire Senators, they are equal to that of the President, and if you look at the entire Federal Constituencies of Reps, they are equal to that of the President. So, Executive, Legislature and even the Judiciary, must be together in the interest of the country”, he said.
