I Have All It Takes To Succeed Kwankwaso, Kano Deputy Governor
Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, Deputy to Governor Rabi'u Musa Kwankwaso of
northern Nigeria state of Kano has broken his silence over his ambition to
govern Kano after 2015, saying he is interested in the guber-race.
Ganduje during a meeting with Kano Correspondent Chapel, Nigeria Union of
Journalists (NUJ) said his willingness to subject himself to succeed his
boss, if given the chance was borne out of his large wealth of experience
and urge to build on the gigantic legacies of Governor Kwankwaso.
'I'm interested in the race, but I have not declared my intention to
run for the Governorship race in 2015. If I say I am contesting, it is no
news; but if I say I am not contesting, that is the news.â€
Ganduje, however, stated that he would be willing to wait until the
Kwankwasiyya political movement of the Kano All Progressive Congress (APC)
decides who will carry the flag.

merger party. So, I will urge you to wait until the time when there will
be news or no news. I am interested, but I have not declared, we are
still consulting, Ganduje added.
He also spoke on Polio eradication.
Ganduje appealed to Kano residents to respond positively to the campaign
of stamping out Polio in the state, noting that the state government in
collaboration with community leaders, the Dangote Organization and
international donor agencies, has been able to curb the spread of the
virus in the state.
Ganduje, however, regretted that the past administration stopped the Polio
Immunization programme for sometime which had devastating implications
where the virus spread, coupled with religious colouration, so, the
effect is what we are still battling with. People had erroneous belief
that the United States of America and Israel wanted to control birth,
particularly in the North but this is not true.
He further stated that, but with the concerted efforts of the state
government and other collaborative organizations, we are on it and we
are succeeding, as there is no case of non-compliance now; with the
involvement of His bah and sometimes, we have no option than to enforce it.
So, at the moment, we have recorded only four cases due to the routine
immunization which the government applied by going from house-to-house.
Anybody who is against polio immunization programme is against
