Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje has assured President Muhammadu Buhari that the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) will capture Kano again during the 2019 general elections.
Governor Ganduje, who made the disclosure at a special presidential interaction session for community leaders, held in Kano on Thursday, said Kano had been supporting the president since he joined politics in 2003.
He said, "You have got the support of Kano during the 2003, 2007, 2011 and 2015 general elections and 2019 will not be exceptional. You have been enjoying the support of Kano people since you joined politics and you will continue to enjoy it.
"Mr president, you two-day working visit to Kano has put to rest some mischievous speculations that when you visit the state, you will have nothing to commission. You have come and commissioned some multi-billion naira people oriented projects which we executed for our people."
Meanwhile, the governor had appealed to president Buhari to come to the aid of the state by completing the Gari irrigation project and rehabilitation of Kano-Kaduna road which he said had became death trap and heaven for armed robbers.
Ganduje said when completed, the two projects would be beneficials to the people of Kano and the neighbouring states of Jigawa, Katsina and Kaduna.
He also appealed for concession support from the federal to enable the state complete its ongoing Seeds Development Company.
He said present administration of Kano state had acheived so much in the areas of education, health, infrastructure and agriculture within two and ahalf years, noting that "courtesy of our efforts to the education sub-sector, the primary schools’ enrolment in the state skyrocketed to over three million pupils.
"We have awarded N1bn contract for the construction of 2-story building of classrooms blocks in some primary schools in the state and another contract worth N1.1bn for furniture. We have also constituted Education Promotion Committees in all the 44 local governments and the committees are yielding results."
The governor added that government had trained 1,936 trditional birth attendants, construct 39 roads within the metropolis and 70 kilometers length roads across the rural areas.
