Former two-term governor of Kano State, and now a Senator representing Kano Central, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso has said that he is contented as a senator, and that he is not thinking of leaving the All Progressives Congress (APC).
In an interview on The Osasu Show, the former Kano state governor said: “ now I am a senator, I am a very happy and contented politician.”
Kwankwaso said that the government of President Muhammadu Buhari is doing its best to develop the country in all facets of human endeavours.
“So far so good, the administration is doing its best, so also the party. But I hope the government and our party should do much more than what we have seen in the last three years so that by 2019, the good people of this country can come out again and vote for our candidates from the councillorship up to the position of the president under the party.
“This last one year is very crucial for the party, the government and the country.”
The former governor made it clear that he is not thinking of leaving the APC, saying: “the issue of decamping or leaving APC is not on the table now. We are looking at how the various stakeholders in our party will look at the situation, not only in Kano but there are many other places that something should be done,” he said.
“People who understand democracy go into politics first and foremost as politicians. From 1991 to date, I contested 16 elections and won 14 and lost two.
“Even the two are important to me because anybody who is in this age of politics who has never contested an election, or contested and only won or lost, to us is not yet complete. We can’t call him a complete politician.
“When the time comes, we look at ourselves, if we realize there is need to contest, we contest.”
