2019 Battle: Buhari will lose in Kano – Kwankwaso replies Amaechi

Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso’ camp has reacted to a comment attributed to the minister of transport, Rotimi Amaechi that President Buhari would still win Kano state in the upcoming 2019 elections if he was on his ‘Sick Bed’.

Amaechi had on Friday said Buhari will win in Sokoto, Kano and Bauchi States in the 2019 general elections even if he was taken to the states “on a sick bed”.

Amaechi heads Buhari’s 2019 campaign organization.

“If you bring the President on a sick bed to Bauchi and Kano, he will win and he has never lost election in Bauchi. But that is a bit arrogant on our side; we should not underestimate them,” he said.

However, Kwankwaso’s spokesperson, Mrs. Binta Spikin said Kwankwaso’s defection will not only affect the votes in Kano State but has brought down the APC.

“I think his defection will greatly affect the votes in 2019. His defection will not only affect the chances of the APC in Kano, his defection has brought down APC. If you look across Nigeria today, not Kano alone, there’s nowhere in Nigeria that you don’t have the presence of Kwankwasiyya (supporters of Mr. Kwankwaso).

Kano is his home base and he is well grounded in Kano. Even without the government, he had a 60 percent of the voters, so what do you think will happen now that he has joined forces with people like Mallam Ibrahim Shekarau?

Even if the government puts whatever in place, there is no way President Buhari will win in Kano, there’s no way.”
