Thousands of tricycle operators in kano disassociated themselves from Kwankwaso.
Holding rally in Kano at Kofar Mata stadium declared their support for President Muhammadu Buhari and Governor Ganduje. Shouting Nigeriaaaaaaaa……Sai Baba
It was gathered that they took the step because of their great love for the governor and president Buhari
Kwankwaso was to declare his intention to run for the office of the president on Wednesday
Kwankwaso got approval to use the Eagle Square for his presidential declaration, and duly paid the charges for it.
But today also coincides with the visit of Theresa May, and the Eagle Square smack in the middle of events, and directly opposite the offices of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs which is going to be a beehive of diplomatic activity today.
May’s convoy will most definitely pass a few meters away from the Square enroute to Aso Rock, and for security reasons, any activity as big as presidential declaration would create a gridlock for the smooth passage of the convoy of the visiting British PM.
And we know how our politicians declare. Its not just with a simple statement of purpose, but a jamboree of sorts with all manner of supporters finding their way to the venue- especially if their presence has been induced.
It would have been a security nightmare. Not because anybody is seeking to harm Theresa May, but because even a lone ranger from Boko Haram could seize the opportunity, using the chaos of the declaration for cover to make a name for himself.
