Kwankwaso rates Buhari govt, speaks on 2019 ambition, plans to dump APC


Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso (Kano Central), has given his verdict on the APC government led by President Muhammadu Buhari.

In an interview on The Osasu Show, the former Kano governor said the current administration was doing its best.

Kwankwaso, however, noted that there’s still much work to be done.

“So far so good, the administration is doing its best, so also the party”, he said.

“But I hope the government and our party should do much more than what we have seen in the last three years so that by 2019, the good people of this country can come out again and vote for our candidates from the councillorship up to the position of president under the party.

“This last one year is very crucial for the party, the government and the country.”

On 2019, Kwankwaso said he has not decided if he will seek any political position in 2019.

He also reacted to reports that he had concluded plans to dump the APC.

“The issue of decamping or leaving APC is not on the table now. We are looking at how the various stakeholders in our party will look at the situation, not only in Kano but there are many other places that something should be done,” he said.

“People who understand democracy go into politics first and foremost as politicians. From 1991 to date, I contested 16 elections and won 14 and lost two.

“Even the two are important to me because anybody who is in this age of politics who has never contested an election, or contested and only won or lost, to us is not yet complete. We can’t call him a complete politician.

“When the time comes, we look at ourselves, if we realise there is need to contest, we contest. Now I am a senator, I am a very happy and contented politician.”
