By Abdulmumin Murtala, Kano
Senator Rabui Kwankwaso, the leader of the
Kwakwasiyya political movement in Kano has
dismissed as concocted lies, allegations against
him piblished in some news media claiming that
he had instructed the candidate of the Peoples
Democratic Party, PDP, Abba Kabir Yusuf not to
pay the N30,000 minimum wage when he
becomes the state governor, and that he should
retrench workers.
This is contained in a statement signed by the
Media Aide to Sen Rabiu Kwankwaso, Binya
Spikin and made available to Vanguard Thursday
“It is disheartening that some media outlets
carry reports with distorted information
attributing it to Sen Rabiu Kwankwaso. These
include a sponsored write-up in the Daily Times
newspaper that says Sen Kwankwaso will
retrench workers if Engineer Abba Kabir Yusuf is
elected governor and a badly written piece on
Sahara Reporters, an online news medium,
insinuating that Sen Kwankwaso has instructed
Engineer Abba Kabir Yusuf not to pay the thirty
thousand naira minimum wage if elected” the
statement reads.
The statement urged the general public to
disregard the concocted false information which
has no basis.

It further draws the attention of the public to the
fact that Sen Kwankwaso is not an advocate of
retrenchment, a fact that the Kano people can
testify to, it added.
“We wish to draw the attention of the public to
the fact that Sen Kwankwaso has never been
and will never be an advocate of retrenchment,
neither will Engineer Abba Kabir Yusuf. The
people of Kano can testify to the doggedness of
Senator Kwankwaso when it comes to issues
pertaining the well being of Kano people, civil
servants or not, in or out of government and that
will never change” the statement added.
He described the concocted stories as deliberate
and mischievous machinations intended to
deflect the people from the much awaited rerun
election when they will take back their mandate
and “set Kano along the track of developmental
“We wish to call on the public to disregard the
concocted lies written solely to blackmail the
person of Sen Kwankwaso who is not the
gubernatorial candidate” the statement added.
Kwankwaso called on the people of Kano not to
allow themselves to loose focus on the oncoming
March 23 rerun elections when they will troop
out to vote for the PDP.
