Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, former governor of Kano state and leader of the Kawankwasiyya political movement, shocked millions of his supporters on Monday night when in a no bar declaration said he has not anointed any candidate for the 2023 gubernatorial race in Kano.

Kwankwaso’s latest stand was a subtle vote against the 2019 gubernatorial candidate, Abba Kabir Yusuf who had grown in strength and political stamina over the past few years in Kano.
