The two-term governor of Kano, Engr Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso, said he had concluded plans to formally declare his political ambition next week.
Kwankwaso, who has been nursing the ambition over the years, would contest for president on the New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP) platform.
Speaking at a news conference on Friday, Mr Kwankwaso said he consulted widely on his plan, and the responses were positive.
“I have been consulting widely with friends and Nigerians of diverse interests, and the outcome has been positive.
“I will be informing Nigerians of my political ambition sometime early next week,” he said.
Kwankwaso also acknowledged the successes recorded by his new political party at its recently-concluded membership registration.
He added, “the support for the NNPP had been overwhelming going by the responses recorded at its recently-concluded membership registration drive.”
