The presidential candidate of New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Rabiu Kwankwaso, has raised the alarm over alleged moves by Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to declare the governorship election in Kanos State inconclusive.
Speaking to journalists in the early hours of Monday morning, he called on the INEC to do what is right as his party is in the lead at the commission’s collation centre.
The former Kano State governor called for fairness as he would not want any form of chaos, following an announcement of results in the state.
Kwankwaso, swept Kano State Presidential election held on February 25th election with a landslide victory against other opposition parties.
The 66-year-old politician was a former defence minister, former senator and served two-terms as governor of Kano, one of Nigeria’s most populous states.
This loyal political fan club has even followed him as he has switched parties – in particular his move in 2013 from the then-governing Peoples Democratic Party to the All Progressives Congress, the current ruling party.
Over his career he was been with five parties, and is now presidential candidate for the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), little known nationally until he joined last year.
