The Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, is presently shut down as former Kano State Governor, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, formally declares his intention to run for president in the 2019 general election.
There had been fears his declaration wouldn’t take place in the nation’s capital after he was denied use of the Eagles Square, Abuja.
The setback notwithstanding, thousands turned out – decked in the customary red attires – for the event still ongoing.
Check out more photos from the gathering.
