Supporters of Alhaji Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, a former governor of Nigeria’s Kano State have claimed that incumbent President, Muhammadu Buhari is unfit to rule Nigeria because of his age.
Kwankwaso, is the leader of the Kwankwasiyya Movement, a group which has a trademark of wearing red caps and veils.
A former ally of Buhari, Kwankwaso, currently a serving senator, on Wednesday officially declared his intention to contest for the presidential slot of the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 general elections.
The Hausa Service of the British Broadcasting Company (BBC) shared a video of Kwankwaso’s supporters busy with anti-Buhari chants in the streets of the capital, Abuja. The supporters who were clad in red caps and veils were heard chanting in Hausa: “Old man, he is incapable….” among others.
Kwankwaso was among over a dozen senators who defected from the ruling All Progressives Congress to the PDP. He was also one of the candidates who contested the APC primaries in 2015 but lost to Muhammadu Buhari who eventually beat the PDP candidate and then president, Goodluck Jonathan.
