Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, the presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), visited Ilorin, Kwara State, on Friday to seek the blessing of the Emir of Ilorin, Alh Ibrahim Sulu-Gambari, for the realisation of his presidential bid.
Kwankwaso was accompanied to the Emir’s palace by the NNPP’s gubernatorial candidate in the state, Prof. Shuaib AbdulRaheem, Alh Buba Galadima, and the party’s senatorial candidate in Kwara North, Dr Kolo Baba Jiya.
Kwakwanso stated at the Emir’s palace shortly after observing the Jumm’at service with the Emir that he was in Ilorin to seek royal blessing.
He added that he would take advantage of the visit to open some NNPP offices in Ilorin, the state capital, and other parts of the state.

“We’ve come to honour you as our traditional father.” We are grateful for your hospitality and the opportunity to participate in the Juma’at service with you. I also want to thank the people of the state for their hospitality. “We pray to Allah to continue to grant our Emir long life and good health,” Kwankwaso added.

In response, the Emir of Ilorin, Alh Ibrahim Sulu-Gambari, described Kwankwaso as a “very experienced politician and administrator.”
He prayed for the Kwankwansiyya movement to flourish, saying, “God will continue to guide you.” I’m delighted to welcome you.”
Sulu-Gambari assured the NNPP presidential candidate that he is in the hands of a powerful figure in the state, Prof. Shuaib AbdulRaheem.
Prof AbdulRaheem, who thanked the Emir for the warm hospitality extended to the NNPP team, said Kwankwaso has all it takes to lead the country out of the hydra-headed security and socio-economic challenges it faces.
