Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso of Kano State apparently angered by President Jonathan’s accusation that he pocketed his campaign money during the 2011 presidential election, stormed the venue the president used for his rally and swept his footprints away. Jonathan had during a rally in Kano on Tuesday accused the governor of frustrating his ambition by refusing to release the money he gave him for delegates from his state. 

He then lambasted the President for flying all over the country just hours after a major bomb blast in Abuja had killed many. “The man came to Kano to smear our image, but thank God, he gave me free publicity by mentioning my name over 50 times in a 15-minute address. “If I decide to contest for the Presidency, I will beg APC, APGA and Labour Party not to vote for me. I want to assure you that, with the PDP votes that I will garner, I will defeat the President hands down” the governor stated. Serious talk. What do you make of the President's trips?

President Goodluck Jonathan on Tuesday took a swipe at Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso of Kano. He accused him (Kwankwaso) of embezzling allowances meant for Kano delegates during the 2011 PDP presidential primary and that he also refused to vote for him. Jonathan recalled that during the presidential primaries at the Eagles Square, Kwankwaso left when it became clear that he had won. 

Kwankwaso, had earlier said, “I regret voting President Goodluck Jonathan in 2011, as he has done nothing to move the nation forward”. He stated this at the All Progressives Congress elders meeting. Reacting to Kwankwaso’s comment however, Jonathan said “I read in the paper that the Governor of Kano state said he regretted voting for me. Let me tell my good people of Kano that Kwankwaso did not vote for me and the Vice President. 2015 is real!
