“Jonathan Wants To Kill Me” Kwankwaso Raises AlarmFeatured, Latest News, News, Politics Wednesday, June 11th, 2014
Kano State governor, Rabiu Kwankwaso says president Goodluck Jonathan should be held responsible if anything happens to him or any member of his family after accusing the Federal Government of wanting to harm him.
Governor Kwankwaso, who made the statement during a chat with newsmen in Abuja Wednesday also accused the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of sponsoring ‘’enemies of the state’’ to embark on violent protests across the state with the intention of bringing his administration down.
He said: “I know that they are playing a lot of games. We do not know their intention and what they are going to do next. But I have to say like all other people in this country that everybody is concerned about his/her security, otherwise our lives are in the hands of the Almighty God.
“The bottom line is that we have seen a sign that there is a level of mischief coming from other places and I want to put it on record that whatever happens to me, my family or my state, Jonathan should be held responsible.”
Kwankwaso expressed shock at the involvement of the Federal Government and the Peoples Democratic Party in the choice of an Emir for Kano.
He said the choice was the traditional duty of the four kingmakers of the state and the state governor.
The governor, who accused the Presidency of using the selection of Sanusi as the new emir to witch-hunt him and the people of the state just because he was no longer in PDP.
The governor, who defected from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, with four other governors to the opposition All Progressives Congress, APC, last December wondered why the Presidency and PDP did not show interest in the recent selection of the new Emir of Gombe, which is a PDP state, even as he asked those causing trouble in his state to steer clear or be ready for the consequences of stoking avoidable violence.
“The problem we are facing is that we are not in PDP because recently there was vacancy in Gombe for a new emir and nobody instigated any violence when the new emir was chosen. What they do not know is that they are in the absolute minority in Kano. Kwankwaso stated.
