Buhari was quoted saying “The weakest whose sense of expectation do not align with our vision have exited our party. We now have a party of strong and patriotic people who are ready to work for a strong Nigeria.”
Reacting to Buhari’s statement, Kwankwaso said through his aide:
“What he has been able to achieve in Kano in four years alone defines him as a strong, visionary, compassionate leader who knows what he wants and how to get it.
“He is the only leader that I know who has been able to put Kano on a sound footing and erect infrastructure projects – over 6,000 of them between 2011 and 2015; they are there for you to touch, feel and use. A weak person cannot achieve that.
“He cannot be selfish too because he remains the only governor of Kano who did not collect the security vote. The man’s cult-like followership is because he is strong and people know that he is not selfish, and he can deliver.”
