During a press conference at the State House, former Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, expressed his hypothetical inclination to slap his predecessor, Musa Kwankwaso, if they had encountered each other at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
Ganduje made these remarks following a meeting with President Bola Tinubu on Friday. He accused Kwankwaso of orchestrating the demolitions in Kano without following proper procedures, which he claimed violated the law. Some of the structures demolished included Haji camp, Daula Hotel, and shopping complexes near the Eid Prayer Ground in the state.
Although Kwankwaso lost the presidential election under the New Nigeria Peoples Party, his party’s candidate, Abba Yusuf, emerged as the winner of the Kano State Governorship election. Interestingly, both individuals happened to be present in the Villa simultaneously to meet with the president.
When questioned about the president’s response and whether they had reconciled during their time in the Villa, Ganduje responded,
“I know he is in the building but we have not met. Probably if we met, maybe I could have slapped him.”
