Presidential Aspirant KwanKwaso Uses Hotel For His Formal Declaration

Former Kano State Governor, and Presidential Aspirant Rabiu Kwankwaso‘s new venue for Presidential declaration will now be at Chida Hotel in Utako, Abuja, Binta Sipikin, his spokesman disclosed.

Naija News recalls that Kwankwaso who is a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential aspirant was denied use of the Eagle Square a public open facility used for such gathering.

Authorities maintaining the facility had, after initially granting him access, denied him usage of the venue; a move believed to be to checkmate the former Kano governor.

In a letter signed by Usman Raji, the facility manager of the Abuja International Conference Centre & Eagles Square, the government said the decision to deny him the Eagle Square was to avoid disruption of “work flow” at the federal secretariat, the work place of hundreds of federal civil servants.

Mr Kwankwaso, who recently defected from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to the PDP had announced Wednesday (today) as the day for the event.
