Former Kano State Governor, Sen. Rabiu Kwankwaso says he’s optimistic President Muhammadu Buhari would experience defeat in Kano in 2019 General Elections.
Representing Kano Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Kwankwaso who recently declared his intention to leave the All Progressives Congress (APC), said that the defection of some APC Members would have strong effect on Buhari’s campaign in Kano.
“I think his defection will greatly affect the votes in 2019. His defection will not only affect the chances of the APC in Kano, but has already brought down the APC in the state. “If you look across Nigeria today, not Kano alone, there’s nowhere in Nigeria that you do not have the presence of Kwankwasiyya, Kwankwaso’s political movement Kwankwaso.
“Kano is his home base. He is well grounded in Kano. Even without the government, he had a 60 percent of the voters. So what do you think will happen now that he has joined forces with people like Mallam Ibrahim Shekarau?
“Even if the federal government puts whatever in place, there is no way President Buhari will win in Kano State. Definitely, Buhari will lose Kano. He stands a very good chance to win Buhari. We are covered.”
