The People’s Democratic Party have hit back at Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje over his comment on the forthcoming Edo governorship elections.
Ganduje had on Monday, after his swearing in as the Chairman of Edo APC Governorship Campaign Council said that the incumbent Governor and the PDP gubernatorial candidate, Godwin Obaseki will be humiliated during the September poll.
The Kano State Governor also assured his party faithfuls that the Chairman of PDP Campaign Council, Nyesom Wike will be “isolated” in the course of the elections.
PDP has, however, replied Ganduje, saying that the Kano Governor is no match to his Rivers State counterpart.
It went further and mocked Ganduje over his infamous”dollars episode”.
“Apparently, Governor Ganduje and other APC leaders are so used to looting public treasuries that such is his first mental direction after his inauguration to lead the Edo governorship campaign,” the PDP’s statement said.
“Governor Ganduje has further confirmed the real intention of the APC, which is to use their morally embattled candidate, Osagie Ize-Iyamu (of course, birds of the same feathers flock together) for their desperate effort to regain access to Edo state treasury, after Governor Godwin Obaseki liberated the state from the stranglehold of APC treasury-looting godfathers.
“Our party invites Governor Ganduje to note that there is no free dollars for him and other APC leaders to loot in Edo State.
“Moreover, Governor Ganduje, with his infamous ‘gandollar’ video, is no match to the Chairman of the PDP National Campaign Council for the Edo election, Governor Nyesom Wike,” PDP said
