2019 Presidency!!! Massive Jubilation As National Assembly Passes Powerful Resolution On Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso

A sustained period of hot debate ensued on Wednesday, on the floor of the Nigerian Senate, over the face-off between the Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, and former Governor of the State, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso.

Recall, that Kwankwaso had intended visiting his State last week, on what many Political Analysts have described as a move to launch his 2019 Presidential Campaign.

The Senate therefore, resolved that the Inspector-General of Police, IGP, must provide adequate security for Kwankwaso to visit his Constituents.

Ruling on the matter, the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, said having listened to the man at the centre of the crisis, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, the matter could be termed an internal family affair.

Saraki then asked the Senate’s Police Affairs Committee to summon the Police IG, and explain why they could not provide the Senator adequate security for the visit to his Constituency.

The matter was first brought by Isa Hamma Misau, an APC Senator from Bauchi State, who inclined the necessity of his motion to the gory pictures of arms brandishing circulating on the social media, regarding the happening in Kano, in the last two days.

Misau told the Senate that if a Senator could not be allowed to visit his Constituents, “then we are not being fair to ourselves.”

He noted that what has been circulating in the social media, “is very dangerous”, as it was becoming a trend of “Yan Daba” period that has long foregone in the State.

He pointed out that as a Senator from Bauchi, which shares a border with Kano, he became concerned as to the development in the State, which informed his decision to bring it to the Senate.

He asked the Senators to condemn the action of the Kano State Governor, whom he accused of promoting the trend, and prayed that an investigation be launched by the Senate.
