El-Rufai's son tips Kwankwaso to be next Buhari of Northern politics

In the just ended presidential election, Kwankwaso won Kano state by a landslip but ultimately placed fourth. 

In the presidential election held on February 25, 2023, the former governor of Kano State came in fourth, behind Labour Party candidate Peter Obi, PDP candidate Atiku Abubakar, and APC winner Asiwaju Bola Tinubu (APC). 

Kwankwaso won with 1,496,687 votes overall, but he won by more than 30 percent in his home state of Kano, where he received 997,279 votes. 

Critics have mocked him as the "President of Kano" because of his party's success in that city, where it won 17 of a total of 18 House of Representatives seats and where he personally helped clinch two senatorial seats for the NNPP. 

Yet on Sunday, Bashir tweeted that Kwankwaso is the "next Buhari of the northern politics" and that his detractors would soon see the light. 

A few years from now, anyone who make fun of Kwankwaso now because he is simply the President of Kano State may feel otherwise. "He is maybe the next Buhari," the governor's son tweeted. 

Recall Since 2003, when he first ran for president and received over 12 million votes but ultimately lost, Buhari has held sway over Northern politics. 

With the support of his 12 million voters, he ran for president of Nigeria under the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP) in 2007 and the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) in 2011, and then won on the APC's platform in 2015.
