When asked if the growing popularity of Obi may cause problems for the APC, the Kano governor said: “The effect of the emergence of Labour Party with Peter Obi, I think it is a good omen for the APC because our major contender is the PDP.
“If you look at it, what is our political investment in the South-east?
“The votes we got from Nassarawa LGA in Kano metropolitan were much higher than the total votes the APC got in the whole five States of the South-east.
“You can see that if there is any problem, politically in the South-east, it is the PDP that will suffer the brunt.”
