Governor of Kano state, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje said his party All Progressive Congress, (APC) is optimistic of winning the state governorship election in a landslide.
Ganduje mentioned this while speaking with pressmen on Saturday in the Government house after casting his vote in his hometown, Dawakin-Tofa LGA of the state.
The Kano governor said that he has confidence in APC winning the state Governorship and House of Assembly polls just the way it won the Presidential election at the centre.
“My expectation is for the APC to win overwhelmingly like we won the Presidential election the last time overwhelmingly
“I have sighted so many polling centres and the attendance is very high. So I believe the election is going on smoothly. So far, I have not heard of any eventuality”
” I am satisfied with the election exercise in terms of the conduct of the movement because the INEC staff and materials were there on time,” Ganduje also added.
The Governor lauds residents of the state for their peaceful conduct and also the security forces for standing alert to tackle any security challenge.
“The people were behaving well and the security agencies were around to ensure adequate security. Where I voted, the BVAs are working well.
“My appeal to the people of Kano is to continue to exercise their franchise peacefully. Because this is a peace accord that we have signed among political parties with the Kano Peace Committee, so I believe we should abide by the pronouncement that we made that we are committed to a peaceful election,” Ganduje said.
