Kano State Governor, Mr Umar Ganduje, on Monday called the Peoples Democratic Party bad losers for challenging his re-election in court.
The PDP had filed a petition against Ganduje’s re-election for a second term at the Election Petitions Tribunal.
The governor also said he was not afraid of the petition and was ready to face his challengers at the tribunal.
He spoke with State House correspondents in Abuja shortly after meeting with the Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari, at the Presidential Villa.
The Independent National Electoral Commission had declared Ganduje the winner of the March 23 governorship poll.
He defeated the PDP’s candidate, Abba Yusuf, who has since gone to the tribunal.
The governor said, “I came to consult with the Chief of Staff that Kano is peaceful; people are jubilating and I am happy to inform him that everything is normal.
“All that you see on the social media is fake, false and he (Kyari) is happy about that.”
On the petition by the PDP, he said he was ready for the opposition.
“Well, we are waiting for them; we know that they are not good losers anyway. So, it is common to go to the tribunal, we are ready to meet them because the first election they committed a lot of fraud, a lot of irregularities and the supplementary election was fair and free.
“It was carried out in 28 Local Governments; they didn’t win a single Local Government out of the 28, so that is giving them a lot of pain. So, we are ready to go to the tribunal”, he added.
