The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Abdullahi Ganduje, has pleaded with APC lawmakers in the Kano House of Assembly, to collaborate with the state governor, Abba Yusuf.
Ganduje who advised during the lawmaker’s courtesy visit to him, in his office at the party National Secretariat, in Abuja on Monday, told the lawmakers that their cooperation is needed despite that the incumbent governor is from another party.
He further explained that the whole essence of politics is development, advising that they should support the governor to provide dividends of democracy to the people of Kano.
“When I see most of you, I see myself because some of you were together 25 years ago.
“Some of you won elections and were assembly members and lost elections and returned after seven years.
“You have been in a cycle with me. So, I can call some of you veterans of democracy. I was not surprised when I learned you are here to see me on a congratulatory visit.
“The state governor is of a different political party, but I want you to know that the whole essence of politics is the development of the people.
“I urge you, irrespective of the different political parties, to cooperate with the state governor for the development of Kano State.
“That does not prevent you from maintaining your position as members of the State Assembly.
“It does not stop us from working together to have an APC government in Kano State. What is most important is for the people of Kano State to get the dividends of democracy.
“I want you to work peacefully with the government in Kano state, and I assure you that we will provide you with all encouragement so that we get more and more members of the State Assembly and also until we get a governor of our party,” Ganduje said.
The ruling APC, lost the state to the New Nigeria People’s Party, during the last governorship election, after Mr Ganduje spent his 8 years tenure, as the governor of Kano State.
