Stepping On Kwankwaso’s Poster Not Intentional – Ganduje

Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has explained that he unintentionally stepped on the poster of Rabiu Kwankwaso, his predecessor during a political rally in the state on Saturday.

It was spotted that the governor's foot was on the poster of the former governor.

This had generated so much controversy as many accused Ganduje of mischief.

Ganduje was the deputy of Kwankwaso throughout the former governor’s eight years in office.

However they parted ways shortly before he succeeded him.

The state commissioner for Information, Muhammad Garba stated that the action was not planned.

He stated that the governor never had any act of disrespecting any political leader.

He added that some people are trying to cause conflict between them.

He further explained that during the event, which was organized as part of activities marking this year’s Democracy Day, two former gubernatorial candidates and many members of the opposition party who defected to the APC dropped the picture of the former governor on the red carpet.

He further added that the Governor mistakenly stepped on the poster when he was on his way to address the public at the event.

The commissioner emphasized that Ganduje is known by many as peace loving, tolerating and harbor no grudges to influence such act.
