Rabiu Kwankwaso, a former governor of Kano state, says the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will win Saturday supplementary election in the state.
Kwankwaso spoke through Binta Spikin, his media aide.
“Sen Rabiu Kwankwaso hereby calls on the people of Kano, cutting across political divides, to conduct themselves peacefully during the oncoming re-run election while voting for the candidate of their choice,” Spikin said on behalf of the former governor.
“Kwankwaso believes in Kano and is concerned about the fate of its teeming youths, which informed his people-oriented projects and programmes when he was the governor of Kano.
“He called on the public to ignore all negative media articles attributed to him, especially those premised on throwing the state into chaos.
“The senator believes that in a free and fair election, PDP will win, as it had previously. Hence, a re-run will not in any way hamper the fortunes of Abba Kabir Yusuf (the PDP governorship candidate).”
