My Kano reception, clear signal to opposition-Buhari

By GideonDecember 07, 2017, 11:27:40 AM
President Muhammadu Buhari has described the massive reception that greeted his arrival in Kano for a two-day working visit as a clear message to the opposition that his popularity in the region remains unshaken.

According to a statement on Thursday by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, the President spoke at a state dinner held in his honour on Wednesday.

The President said results of 2003, 2007 and 2011 presidential elections all showed that Kano State remains his stronghold.

He said, ‘‘I am overwhelmed with the massive reception I have received and definitely since this is partisan politics, I think it has sent a clear message to the opposition.

‘‘Even going by the details of the election results in 2003, 2007 and 2011, it was very clear that nobody could even dare to rig my scores from the elections in Kano.

‘‘It has been so consistent and I don’t think I have the vocabulary to express my thanks to the people of Kano.

‘‘I am very grateful to God and the people of Kano for the complete trust you have in me,’’ he said.

The President noted that during his drive around the city on Wednesday to inaugurate projects, he observed that many of those who thronged the road to welcome him were young people.

He pledged that as a person in a position of authority, his priority is to provide a meaningful future for the teeming youths in the country through education, and the faithful management of the economy and resources.

The President congratulated Governor Abdullahi Ganduje on his development strides in the state and urged other political office holders to emulate and support the state governor.

‘‘He is a great politician and I am afraid I am still learning,’’ the President said.

Buhari reaffirmed that his message at his inaugural address, “I belong to everybody and I belong to nobody,’’ will continue to guide his stewardship to the Nigerian people.

‘‘My problem is Nigeria and I have been involved in almost all the instability Nigeria experienced: the civil war, the coups, and counter-coups. That was why I said during my swearing-in that ‘I belong to everybody and I belong to nobody.’

‘‘Nigeria is my target and I will continue to maintain focus,’’ he said.

Well,he has forgotten that Kano is not Nigeria. Kano is only a state in Nigeria. If one wants to win an election, majority of states needs to be won. So this does not mean anything.

This statement contradicts itself in ways that is mind boggling.

Just imagine these two statements:

.

Fine and GOOD...
But then

He says...

‘Nigeria is my target and I will continue to maintain focus,’’ he said.

It would seem to me that if your focus is on Nigeria, you would not brag about merely retaining a small fraction of Nigeria in several elections. You would instead try to provide support for your statement by citing your electoral scores in ALL parts of Nigeria.
And where you can't find those numbers in support (historically), you do your level best under current dispensation to win the votes elsewhere.
I don't see that effort at all.
What I see is an entrenchment of behaviors that led to you not being able to win the votes elsewhere in Nigeria similar to the ones you got in Kano.
I'm really scratching my head at this statement.  :w
