2015 election will be peaceful — Kwankwaso

Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso

Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso of Kano State on Wednesday said that the 2015 general elections will be peaceful.

He said “I’m confidentially sure that the President who is Commander-in-Chief, the Service Chiefs and the Police, would not do things that would truncate the nation’s democracy because for one they are part of the high beneficiaries of the system”.

Mr. Kwankwaso told journalists in his office, Wednesday, that the nation democracy has come to stay and God willing nothing will break it because is best thing to happen to Nigeria.

Mr. Kwankwaso, although, believes that the recent actions of the Nigeria Police against the elected members of the National Assembly is a serious threat to the democratic culture, he insists it will not in any way break the system.

He said, “It is rather unfortunate that the Police choose to take side while carrying their duties, they should be restraints and know that their service is for all Nigerians regardless of one’s political and
religious leaning”.

Mr. Kwankwaso, who is also a presidential aspirant under the All Progressives Congress, APC, warned that unless these level of impunity are checked, Nigeria would continue to suffer.
