Kwankwasiyya Amana in Plateau state had called on the Kano state Governor, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, to declare his interest to contest for the forthcoming 2015 presidential election.
The group, Chairman Nuru Inuwa Takai, said based on the political credentials, track record and current performance, Kwankwaso has all the potentials to salvage Nigeria from the shackles of poor leadership, more especially at a time when Nigerians are clamoring for change.
He made the call while addressing a press conference after its meeting held at their secretariat yesterday in Jos, where they disclosed that they have volunteered to mobilised people from all the nook and cranny of the state for Kwankwaso’s Presidency.
The group stressed that: “Nigeria is currently threatened by insecurity challenges, high corruption, unemployment, poor infrastructure and poverty as well as lack of social amenities to millions of our fellow citizens. We believe that Kwankwaso have the prudence and credibility to deliver the country back on track.”
It further said: “We are openly calling on Kwankwaso to make known to the general public his interest to contest for the presidency on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), because we believe that he is very qualified for the position and has what takes to rule the country just as he truly transforms Kano state. Kano has presently turned into a mini Nigeria, an evidence of what the country will become with a Kwankwasiyya presidency.”
The group stated that they know the complex nature of Plateau state because of its different ethnic groups, a miniature Nigeria, “but we have already lunched the ideology on the Plateau and we have planned a house to house campaign.”
“We have already set up leadership of the movement in all the 17 LGAs in the state. I am calling on all the citizens of the state to keep aside ethnic and religious differences and vote for a credible person that will rescue Nigerians and Nigeria from the plethora of problems threatening the cooperate existence of our country.”
