According to the Kano governor, the PDP had poached Gov. Godwin Obaseki because they needed access to the state treasury in order to prosecute the election.
Ganduje accused Gov. Obaseki of treachery, saying the APC made him and yet he decided to turn his back on the party. He said; “First of all, seeing is believing, by looking at the composition of this Committee, you know that APC is ready for the election, you know that APC will make d
He said, “We know the opposition is planning to rig the election, we know their tactics, we know their methodology and we shall dismantle all their tactics to ensure that we win this election “We know PDP made Wike their chairman but I assure you, we will isolate Wike in an isolation centre and before he recovers, the election is over.
“he PDP decided to accommodate our former Governor in Edo State not because they have anything in common, not because they share some feelings, but simply because he is managing the treasury of Edo State and they want him to use that treasury in order to win the election. But I assure you the people of Edo State are watching, they know that somebody who was assisted in 2016 to win an election, somebody who was given every cooperation to succeed in the governance of Edo State without doing much for the people, at the end of it, he has taken the treasury and now handed it over to PDP in order to win the election.
“The people of Edo State will not accept this treachery. The people of Edo State on the 19th September will come out en masse and vote APC.
