The PDP Kanorally, this online news platform understands has been the most anticipated campaign for the opposition party, with Nigerians on the micro-blogging site, Twitter describing it as “the mother of all rallies”.
Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso is believed to be the PDP’s major asset in Kano due to his Kwankwasiya movement, which is touted in some quarters as the strongest political movement in the northern part of the country.
