Kano - President Goodluck Jonathan on Monday came under heavy criticism from Gov. Rabiu Kwankwaso of Kano State for misleading Nigerians on some of the projects executed by his administration, reports Premium Times.
Kwankwaso blasted President Jonathan for including some of the projects executed by the Kano State government as part of the federal projects in the North-West zone of country.
Jaafar Jaafar, Special Assistant on Media to Governor Kwankwaso, said some of the projects exhibited by Jonathan actually belong to the Kano State government.

Jonathan’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Reuben Abati, had in a 10-part series of tweets on Sunday highlighted key projects the Jonathan administration executed in the six North-West states of Kano, Kaduna, Katsina, Sokoto, Kebbi and Zamfara.
The tweets were part of the ongoing massive publicity to shore up Jonathan’s reelection chances in the forthcoming presidential election.
Abati had in one of the tweets used images of a multi-storey complex as well as that of a computer laboratory to illustrate the message.
Jaafar , however, said the multi-storey complex used in the tweet is a building on the temporary campus of Kano-state owned Northwestern University.
He also said the photograph of the computer lab published Abati was that of Kwankwaso Informatics Institute currently located right inside the Kano State Library.
The governor has demanded an apology from Jonathan for taking credit for something he did not achieve.
