Kano state governor Abdullahi Ganduje has described as cheap propaganda, online videos showing under age voters in the recently concluded local government elections in Kano state.
Speaking to state house journalists on the sidelines of national security dialogue which held at the Banquet hall of the state house in Abuja yesterday also said the conduct of the elections was very peaceful with observers making good reports.
“You can ask the National observers who went there, they held a press conference, and all those pictures were children from school assembly. It is not true, it is part of the propaganda. Let them go back to the state and ask the people did they queue up and vote in the election?
“So, we don’t even need to respond to such falsehood. Ask those who are credible and who witnessed the election, I think that is the most important rather than rely on the social media where things are crafted, and take pictures that were prearranged. We don’t rely on that Bauchi governor,” he said.
On the recent claims of violence rocking the state, Governor Ganduje said there has not been any outbreak of instability in the state as a result of political activities.
“A month ago, we had inter faith dialogue between the Christians and Muslims and the Ulamas and the clergymen were all there. We had a resolution pertaining to the peace and stability in the state.
“And since I came into office, there has not been any outbreak of instability in the state, nobody has been killed, and nobody has been injured as a result of political activities.
“So you can see that the propaganda outside the state is that there is insecurity in the state, practically we have been showing that it is false,” he said.
