Alhaji Kwankwaso assured the governor that he as well as the rest of the village heads and community leaders would work tirelessly towards his success in the forth coming elections.
“When you came into power in 2015 on May 29, 2015, we were absolutely sure that you would bring development to all the nooks and crannies of the state. And Alhamdulillah, this is what you are doing. So we need more of this development,” he stated.
He further declared that, “we are ready to always support you…. You really love your people as a committed and focused leader. We are appreciating your good work.”
In his response, Governor Ganduje explained that he was in Madobi to seek his fatherly prayers for his re-election.
“We are sure that you will give us what we are here for. So when you accepted to support my gubernatorial race, we were not surprised because this is just a case of a father and his son,” Ganduje added.
Ganduje also conveyed the message of President Muhammadu Buhari, thanking all those who prayed hard for his quick recovery when he was abroad some months ago.
