One of the contestants for PDP presidential ticket, Rabiu Kwankwaso, yesterday declared to run for the number one political seat.
The event which held at Chida hotel in Utako, Abuja, witnessed a massive turnout by his supporters from across the country.
The venue, which was filled to capacity was announced after kwakwanso was denied access to Abuja’s Eagle Square after earlier approval by the authorities.
Many of the attendees at the event wore red caps in solidarity with Kwankwaso who is known for wearing a red cap on white attire.
Prominent amongst those at the event were former governor of Edo State, Lucky Igbinedion; national chairman of the Reformed All Progressives Congress, Buba Galadima; former Kano State deputy governor who recently resigned, Hafiz Abubakar, and Members of the National Assembly loyal to Kwankwaso.
Kwankwaso told the tumultuous crowd that he would work to improve Nigeria’s security, economy, address social challenges, infrastructure, human capital development and enhance global competitiveness, education, research as well as innovation.
