Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje has banned political thugs at events and gatherings across the state.
He reportedly disclosed this through his Chief Press Secretary, Abba Anwar, in a statement over the weekend, stating that the decision followed the brandishing of dangerous weapons, including sticks, swords, knives and cutlasses by thugs during an event in Kano.
According to him, “We will not accept this and I assure you that I will deal with any politician who violates this warning. During the flag-off ceremony of Kano-Gwarzo-Dayi Road, on the same day, political thugs engaged in unbecoming conduct.”
He added that, “I informed you that we are commemorating Democracy Day, with lined up of activities that will witness the presence of the APC National Chairman, the Governor of Yobe State, and others.
Ganduje also stated that, “Our politics in Kano is based on good reasoning and knowledge, focusing on a good agenda and not that of irresponsibility and madness.”
