Ahead of the 2023 general elections, the leader of the Kwankwasiyya movement and former Governor of Kano State, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, has charged his supporters and members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state to gear up for the “battle ahead”.
Naija News reports that the former presidential aspirant gave this charge during one of his meetings with PDP members from different local government areas in the state. The meetings, which are being held in series, started on Friday and continued on Monday.
This comes as part of an ongoing exercise to strengthen the PDP in the 484 electoral wards in North-West state. Each of the wards was represented by the party chairman, caucus chairman, caucus secretary, woman leader and a Kwankwasiyya scholar.
Kwankwaso, in a press statement by the coordinator of his media centre, Sanusi Bature, was quoted as saying, “our most common enemies are those who destroy the education and healthcare systems in Kano”.
He disclosed that the unity of his followers has always been the secret to the success recorded he recorded in the previous elections, stressing that, “we have enough enemies to fight as members of the opposition, we shall remain one solid force to reckon with”.
The former Governor, who has been locked in a fierce rivalry with his successor, Governor Abdullahi Ganduje, went on to state that Kano is witnessing the worst pattern of leadership in the hands of the incumbent governor.
“I want you to get ready for the battle ahead, 2023 is going to be unique, its uniqueness makes it so important that we must be united to fight the enemies of Kano,” Kwankwaso said.
