Three children of of the Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje have indicated interest to contest election to represent the people of Dawakin-Tofa/Tofa/Rimin Gado Federal Constituency.
The interest is to take over from the current occupant of the seat, who was allegedly attacked and beaten up by youths recently, Hon. Tijjani Jobe for non-performance and failing to fulfil all previous promises he made to the people.
The incident happened when the lawmaker went to inaugurate a project at Gulu, a village under Rimin Gado Local Government Area last Sunday.
A report emanated yesterday that all is not well with Governor Ganduje and Jobe and that the attack on Jobe might not be unconnected to the failed relationship.
At the moment, Brave Views can report that three children of the Governor namely: Umar, Aseeya and Abdulaziz Ganduje have already started jostling to take over from the lawmaker with their father’s support.
The governor, it was learnt, ordered Jobe to stop the construction of Rimingado-Gulu Road in his constituency.
A source said Ganduje called the lawmaker on phone on Tuesday night and directed him to demobilise the contractors from site or he would order their arrest.
In the meantime, the embattled lawmaker has denied being attacked by his constituents, adding that the news was sponsored by his detractors.
