Former governor of Kano State and presidential aspirant under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Musa Kwankwaso, has said that every house in the North has at least one member of the Kwankwasiyya movement which he originated.
Kwankwaso who stated this after picking his expression of interest and nomination forms for the presidential race at the PDP national secretariat, the spread of his movement in the North is what stands him out in the race.
The senator also stated that he is from the Northwest which boasted the largest voting population in the country.
He said “we have also worked as a movement – the Kwankwasiyya Movement. I can tell you today in Northern Nigeria, it will be a great surprise if you get to one house without a member of Kwankwasiyya there. And you must have known by now that the Kwankwasiyya Group is a well disciplined group.
We are so committed to Project Nigeria. I am sure you must have seen some of them who came here for my declaration, which saw so many young men and women from almost all Northern states; some of them were even hiring trailers to come to my declaration during raining season. You can imagine yourself in a trailer and it is raining.
“But they were happy because they want to ensure that there is good leadership in this country. And I am so happy that we have such young men and women in this country who support us as Kwankwasiyya members. These are people who are not looking for money to go for election. These are people who are determined to vote and protect their votes. And that is the meaning of Kwankwasiyya so all these things put together, gives me an edge over all other (presidential) aspirants,” he said.
