Former governor of Kano State, Alhaji Rabiu Kwakwanso, on Tuesday joined the Lagos State governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, Jimi Agbaje, to canvass support from the Hausa/Fulani community in the Serikin Hausawa of Agege, Lagos.
A statement released by the Lagos State PDP disclosed this, saying that Agbaje’s running mate, Mrs Oluwayemisi Busari was also part of the entourage.
The Serikin, Alhaji Musa Dogonkadai, prayed for Agbaje and the PDP presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
Mr. Kwankwaso later urged the Hausa community to support the PDP from the Lagos State House of Assembly, House of Representatives and Senate to governorship and the presidency, the statement said.
On his part, Agbaje, said the non-indigenes in Lagos are stakeholders and stand to benefit from the incoming government of the PDP.
“This state once enjoyed massive development in multilateral sectors under the second republic regime of Alhaji Lateef Jakande. The current sets of rulers have pillaged the state for their selfish interests.
“I represent the renaissance of the Jakande style of unselfish and developmental governance; and Lagos State under me will be rid of the negative indices that have made it about the worst of the world’s mega cities,” he said.
