As the gubernatorial elections in Edo state approaches, most of the big names in both PDP, rhe ruling party in the state and APC the opposition have arrived campaigning for their respective political parties.
Executive Governor of Rivers State, Nysom Wike is the chairman of the campaign committee set by the National body of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), while on the other side, All Progressive Congress appointed the executive Governor of Kano State Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje to chair the committee for the election.
Interestingly, the Ganduje’s political foe Kwankwaso was also there together with other major stakeholders of PDP.
It was rumoured that Ganduje was stoned by a group of angry youth when he arrived Benin City yesterday to continue with the campaign.
The pictures that emerged from the seen indicated that alot of vehicles from the convoy of Ganduje have been damaged.
Astonishingly, a senior special assistance to Ganduje, Honourable Faizu Alfindiki alleges that, it was Kwankwaso that sponsored the youth.
Alfindiki disclosed that via his Twitter handle in hausa that “Kwankwaso ne yasa aka jefe mu a Edo” meaning it was Kwankwaso that sponsored the youth to stone us in Edo.
Neither Kwankwaso himself, nor any of his close allies have so far responded to the allegation.
