Information recently made available to 247ureports.com through sources close to the activities of the former governor of Kano State, Malam Ibrahim Shekarau reveal that the former governor of Kano State may have had a veiled relationship with the then Peoples Democratic Party [PDP] candidate for president in the person of the then incumbent president, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan.
It is recalled that the former governor of Kano State, Malam Shekarau had contested in the 2011 presidential elections under the All Nigeria Peoples Party [ANPP] against President Goodluck Jonathan under the PDP. Prior to getting the ANPP party flag, the former governor of Kano State had been at a logger-head with the then leader of the ANPP, General Mohammed Buhari. The two ANPP stalwarts had fought for the control of the party – leading to the ‘ejection’ of General Buhari out of the ANPP. Both Shekarau and Buhari wanted to fly the ANPP banner to contest for the 2011 presidential election – as the favored northern candidate. As thought, the year 2011 was reserved for a northern candidate for presidency.
With General Buhari successfully ejected out of the ANPP, the former governor mounted the stage to fly the banner to vy for the presidency. General Buhari, on his part, formed a new party, the Congress for Progressive Change [CPC]. General Buhari used the new party to mount his presidential campaign in 2011.
But a new document recently made available to 247ureports.com shines a suspicious light on the former governor of Kano. The document shows that the former governor of Kano State was supporting the candidacy of the incumbent president – whom he [and Buhrai] was competing against at the polls. The document – which is an official Kano State document – reveals that Shekarau donated a N48,500,000 Bulletproof Toyota landcruiser to Goodluck Jonathan. The date of delivery to Goodluck Jonathan, according to the document was April 25, 2011. The document was signed by two Permanent Secretaries on behalf of the Kano State government.
See document below.
It is striking that the N48million donation to Goodluck Jonathan originated from the Kano State treasury – a state the largest number of almagiri [homeless boys] in Nigeria.
