Abdulahi Ganduje, governor of Kano state, said All Progressive Congress (APC) would take advantage of Governor Godwin Obaseki’s alleged failure during the September 19 election.
He made this known on Friday during a visit at the Aso Rock Villa with party members including Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the APC Governoship candidate.
Ganduje, who is chairman of the APC campaign council for the Edo governorship election said Obaseki remains a liability to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He told journalists: “Your question is that we are contesting against a serving governor in Edo State. Yes, that is a very important question at this material time. It could have been a big problem if the governor performs well while governing his state,” he said.
“He could have been an asset to PDP. But I assure you that governor is a liability. In fact, it’s even better for us that we are contesting against a serving governor who failed woefully. He failed woefully in the area of human development.
“He failed woefully in the area of providing infrastructural facilities to the good people of Edo State, he failed most woefully in the execution of constitutional provision in the state, especially pertaining to the legislature.
“Fourteen members were out of the legislature for 13 good months. When we calculated, we saw those 14 legislators are representing 60 per cent of the population. All their constituents are unhappy that elected legislators were not given the chance to participate in the legislation in that state. In fact, all the legislation made should be considered as illegal. So, we are ready to fight somebody who has failed and it’s an advantage to us.”
