In the statement, the national chairman of the party Prince Uche Secondus, represented by his deputy Senator Suleiman Nazif said PDP has taken Kano as the major support base in northern Nigeria and will do everything within the confines of the law to protect the party’s interests in the state.
It noted that Senator Nazif applauded Kwankwaso for his tenacity in leading the party to victory in the 2019 governorship election.
“Your Excellency, let me also use the opportunity to thank you for your efforts in promoting education not only in Kano but northern Nigeria, we have seen for the first time how a private citizen who is not holding any political office supports the children of the poor to pursue the education. Sir, I will on behalf of the party thank you for sponsoring 370 students to study master’s degrees in various universities abroad”
‘’The national Chairman of the party decried the injustice meted on Kano people during the rerun election and using the state’s apparatus to sabotage PDP’s victory, said the statement.
