The Governor of Kano state, Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has promised to deliver 5 million votes for President Buhari in 2019.

Ganduje said this while swearing in 44 new local government council Chairmen, and 484 councillors, Vanguard reports.

According to him, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has made great impact in Kano state.

The Governor also warned the newly sworn-in local government chairmen against mismanagement of funds.

He said “The overall number of votes scored by the APC candidates is more than what President Buhari scored in 2015 general election, that is to say that if eventually he agreed to contest 2019 general election, I assured you, we will give you 5 million votes.

 “We have seen in this election was a clear indication that Kano is APC and ready to contribute to its success any time.”
