GOVERNOR Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has hinted that he will not be returing from politics anytime soon.

Ganduje made the comment yesterday while responding to a question by a journalist during an interactive session with members of Kano Correspondents’ Chapel at the government house.

He disclosed that he had ventured into politics since 1978 but he is not ready to retire soon when reacting to the claim by his Katsina State counterpart Governor Aminu Masari, who stated that he would retire from politics after 2023.

In his words “For now, I’m not tired. Whether I am retiring or not, time will tell. Let me tell you that I have been in politics since 1978. So, even if I say I am retiring, my eyes will be watching and my ears will be hearing,” he said.

On the issue of Independence of judiciary and Local Government, Ganduje stated that “judiciary is already independent. This is the body that has power to cancel election. Even if you win an election as a Governor, tomorrow court can declare you a loser, so there no need for this question.”

“What you should have asked is the financial independence of judiciary and we are doing extremely well in that regard.

”In terms of the Local Government independence, we give them what is due for them. In fact, we are sometimes executing projects together,” Ganduje said.
