Kwankwaso arrives Kano to roaring welcome from supporters 



After going round the country for campaigns,  national leader and presidential candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party(NNPP), Rabi’u Kwankwaso, has arrived Kano ahead of Saturday, February 25th, general elections. 

Kwankwaso arrived Kano after touring over 500 local governments out of 774 in the 36 states and Abuja.

He was accompanied by the NNPP gubernatorial candidate, Abba Yusuf; his deputy, Aminu Gwarzo and all the three Senatorial candidates of the party in Kano state. 

Kwankwaso is coming home after completing his rally in  Kaduna on Wednesday, February 22nd. 

Members and supporters of the NNPP came out  in their hundreds of thousands to welcome the candidates and they were sighted chanting and drumming their supports for the former Kano state governor.

A statement signed by the Chief Spokesperson of the NNPP Campaign Council, Sanusi Bature, said a peaceful atmosphere for the conduct of free, fair and credible 2023 general elections is the utmost concern of the party and all stakeholders involved.

He said, “So, the party’s supporter will abide by the police security advises that are not motivated by the ruling party.”

Meanwhile, prior to Kwankwaso’s visit, the police in Kano had advised that all political parties suspend their rallies to avoid clash.

But, in a letter sent to the new Commissioner of Police, the NNPP said, “It is not staging a rally but rather receiving its Presidential candidate who would be in Kano to join other Nigerians in exercising their civic rights on Saturday, February 25th, 2023.”

Sanusi added, “Kwankwaso is the second Kano citizen to secure a presidential ticket of a major political party after Malam Aminu Kano in the history of Nigerian politics. This gives advantage to the party with hope that Kwankwaso will emerge the first Kano man to serve Nigeria as the democratically elected president.

 “We have thwarted the APC scheme to deny our members, supporters and stakeholders their fundamental freedom of political association as enshrined in the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“We welcome the development from the joint security operation of the army, police and civil defence personnel who have arrested over 300 political thugs assigned to orchestrate attack on the motorcade of our presidential candidate.

“We learned that two serving Local Government chairmen were also arrested in connection to the illegal possession of firearms. A notorious gang leader of APC thugs who has been known as the ruling party’s hit-man in now in the custody of police.

“We urged the police to ensure that all the political criminals and thugs arrested are brought to book to face the full wrath of the law,” Sanusi pleaded.
