“When I was sworn in 2011, I did a lot to support security in the state.
“You know security is not only about Police, State Security Service and other agencies, but there is job, food and health security too,’’ he said.
He promised that if voted as the president of the country in 2015, the he would ensure that Boko Haram phenomenon becomes a thing of the past.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the aspirant was in Ibadan to meet with the South-West delegates ahead of the party’s congress on Dec.10.
Kwankwaso will contest the party’s primaries with Gen. Mohammadu Buhari, former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar and Gov. Rochas Okorocha of Imo, among others. (NAN)
