A former governor of Kano State, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, Wednesday declared his intention to contest for the presidency on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at Chida Hotel in Abuja.
Kwankwaso’s declaration was witnessed by a mammoth crowd of his supporters.
All the roads leading to the hotel were blocked by Kwankwansiya members who were all spotting red caps and eager to catch glimpse of every moment.
Initially, the senator, representing Kano central constituency, planned to declare his presidential ambition at the Eagle Square before the the police sealed off the place.
Attempt to use the old parade ground was also futile before he finally opted for Chida Hotel where he made his declaration.
