Kwankwaso bows to pressure, cancels Kano rally

January 29, 2018 6:10 pm

Rabiu Kwankwaso, lawmaker representing Kano central senatorial district, has shelved his visit to Kano state.

The police had advised him to postpone the visit in order to avoid an outbreak of violence between his supporters and loyalists of Abdullahi Ganduje, the governor.

Both Kwankwaso and Ganduje had fixed their rallies for Tuesday.
After the police advice, Kwankwaso had vowed to go ahead with his trip.
But speaking through Rabi’u Sulaiman Bchi, a former secretary to the state government, on Monday, Kwankwaso announced the cancellation, saying it followed a series of consultations.

“I have shelved my visit to Kano to avoid political clash in the state following series of advice I have received from well-meaning Nigerians home and abroad,” he said.
“In view of this and after lengthy consultations with well-meaning Nigerians home and abroad, we painfully have decided to shelve the scheduled visit at the moment.”
