Kano: We’re ready to fight anybody that wants to victimise us politically – Kwankwaso dares FG

Former governor of Kano State, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, has accused the Federal Government of compromising Kano security by their refusal to take away heavy security operatives guarding the deposed Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero.

Kwankwaso also accused the current administration of Bola Ahmed Tinubu of attempting to create a new breed of terror group and insurgents in Northern Nigeria.

The leader of the Kwankwasiyya Movement was reacting to the ongoing situation in Kano where federal security agencies are allegedly backing the deposed Emir Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero.

Speaking during the flag-off ceremony for the construction of 82 kilometres of rural road networks at his hometown, Madobi, Senator Kwankwaso said the people of Kano would resist any attempt to undermine the constituted authority in the state.

He said; “We have mass followership because people believe in us, we are pro-people and the NNPP administration is determined to serve them anywhere they voted for it.

“We will not fold our arms and watch enemies of the state destroy the peaceful co-existence of our dear state, as we shall do everything possible to support the governor to succeed. I am happy that he is not distracted and is focused on achieving his goals.

“There are people from Kano, enemies of the state, who also suffer mental illness and are the ones advising the Federal Government on how to take over Kano through a State of Emergency. This is the madness of the highest order that the good, peace-loving and committed people of Kano will resist.

“We dare anybody, who thinks he can victimise us politically, to be rest assured that we are ready for the fight. We are not afraid to be out of power because we will remain politicians in or out of government, we cannot run away from our destiny, we are humans, we know what is good for us and we will pursue it vigorously.

“We are open to dialogue, truce and reconciliation, but we will not accept intimidation and political harassment of any sort. We know how to play politics and we have all it takes to protect ourselves from any evil”.
