GOMBE, Nigeria – Former governor of Gombe State, Ibrahim Dankwambo, has mocked Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State for begging Nigerians to vote Governor Yahaya Bello.

El-Rufai, who is the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress Gubernatorial Campaign in Kogi State was quoted as saying, “Many people say Yahaya Bello is young and that he has fought many people. For every one that the governor has offended, I am asking all of you to forgive him. He is young, he is supposed to make mistakes.
“When you are young, you make mistakes, but you are supposed to learn from him. On his behalf, I am kneeling down to beg all of you to forgive Yahaya Bello if he has offended you.”
Reacting Dankwambo, on his Twitter page wrote, ”How do you beg for forgiveness for a governor owing 30 months salaries and who cannot point to one project in 4yrs?”
