In a shocking show of solidarity, some members of the National Assembly from Kano State have declared their support for the state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, ahead of the 2019 elections.
The federal lawmakers endorsed the governor’s re-election bid despite his ongoing investigation by the state House of Assembly over bribery allegation.
The lawmakers-two senators and 14 members of the House of Representatives- told journalists in Abuja that the governor and President Muhammadu Buhari would emerge victorious in the elections.
They claimed that some members of the ruling All Progressives Congress who were close to the Presidency were working against the interests of the governor and the President.
In a statement they jointly signed, the federal lawmakers passed a vote of confidence on the governor.
They however refused to answer questions on the bribery allegation, saying the case was in court.
