Ogidi, Feb. 13, 2018 -- A former Governor of Kano State, Sen. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, on Feb. 11, stormed  Anambra State to meet with executive members of Kwankwaso Movement and the Hausa community in the state.

The meeting was to enable him to seek their support ahead of the 2019 Presidential Election.

Addressing them at Awka, Kwankwaso pleaded for their support to his presidential ambition, stressing that the first hurdle would be to emerge victorious in the presidential primaries.

He noted that indiscriminate killings and the unending economic hardship on the people, informed his resolve to contest the election, vowing to use his position to restore the lost glory of the country.

Kwankwaso, on arrival paid a courtesy call on the traditional ruler of Ogidi, Igwe Alex Onyido, explained his mission to the Royal father whom he said spent most of his life in Kano State.

``I have come to see the people of the state and thank them for their support.

``Election is not `a do or die’ affair and my successor, Gov. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, who was opposing my ambition should have a rethink and join me to seek better welfare for Nigerians.’’

Igwe Onyido, thanked Kwankwaso for the courtesy call and wished him well in his future endeavours.

Earlier in his speech, the state Publicity Secretary of the Kwankwaso Movement, Mr Charles Onwuzulike said, ``Kwankwaso is going to be the President in 2019 election’’.

``I commend the Hausa community in the state who came to cheer him. I promise that you will not regret supporting him.

``The killings across the country, which the present administration did not have solutions to is unfortunate and should be the concern of every right-thinking Nigerian.’’

In a speech, the state chairman, Chief Eddy Ndiche, commended Kwankwaso for coming to see them in spite of his tight schedules and assured him of massive support of Ndi Anambra.
