Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, Kano State Governor and presidential hopeful on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has said that President Goodluck Jonathan would be easy to defeat during the 2015 elections.
Kwankwaso who is determined to emerge as the candidate of the opposition APC, dismissed speculations that he would step down for any of the aspirants, noting that he was the most qualified for the job.
“I have contested elections 12 times, I won 11 times, and lost only one from the ward, local government, state and national assembly level,” he said.
Kwankwaso who spoke with journalists in Ilorin, Kwara State on Tuesday night ahead of yesterday’s meeting of the APC leaders and other stakeholders in the state explained that with the electorates’ level of awareness, Nigeria’s growing democracy, any incumbent governor or president can be removed by the people.
According to him, he was removed as the governor of Kano State and later re elected, adding that in Ekiti State, the electorates voted against an incumbent governor, Kayode Fayemi of the APC, while the same APC won election in Osun State.
“Any president or governor can be unseated in Nigeria now; forget about any political jamboree or propaganda that anybody or political party can be engaged in. For me, President Jonathan will be easy to remove in 2015 election because Nigerians are angry with him. Many people will be surprised. You people are just sitting down here, if you go to the north eastern part of Nigeria, your people there are living on the hills because of the crisis of displacements while many others have fled to neighbouring African countries for survival; where we are sending relief materials to them.
“Nigerians are no fools and people cannot be deceived. At the right time, they will speak with their votes. If any of you journalists are the parents of the Chibok girls only God knows how many write ups you would have done by now. Where are the girls, we really need a change,” Kwankwaso said.
