The Governor of Kano State, Rabiu Kwankwaso, has stated that the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Muhammadu Buhari is in a better health condition than President Goodluck Jonathan and is therefore, fit to rule Nigeria.
Buhari, the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) is currently on a working visit to the United Kingdom.
His trip to the United Kingdom has however, been a subject of controversy as the Peoples Democratic Party attempted to convince Nigerians that his motive of travelling out of Nigeria was to seek a medical attention.
The voluble governor of Ekiti State who is on the fore front of antagonism to Buhari has sworn that the APC was deceiving Nigerians about Buhari’s health status, expressing conviction that Buhari is in UK on health matters.
Against this background, the governor of Kano state in a chat with newsmen in Kano said Buhari has no health challenges.
“By my judgement, since we finished our party primary elections, he is sound, hale and fit to rule this country.
“In fact I feel he is healthier than the incumbent occupier of the seat because he went to all the states on campaigns in addition to other engagements that come in between,” he said.
Kwankwaso also accused the Federal government and the ruling PDP of sharing money to win the presidential election fixed for March 28.
He said money alone cannot give success in the forthcoming elections.
“The Federal Government and the PDP can use all the money in the treasury to bribe whoever they want, but God, the Almighty, has his own way of doing things.
“Power belongs to Him not to those with money or who control security agencies. Nigerians are wiser,” he said.
On his stewardship as governor, Kwankwaso said every state governor can work to develop their states unless if they chose to steal instead.
“People are surprised and many are asking questions that where did we get the money to do these projects we are doing in Kano. But the truth of the matter is that – you cannot steal and perform. It is the money for projects that people steal that is why they are not performing. In Kano we don’t steal,” he said.
