•Abba Kabir Yusuf

Rabiu Kwankwaso, a former governor of Kano State and PDP leader in the state, has finally picked his son in-law Abba Kabir Yusuf, for PDP governorship ticket.

Mr Kwankwaso also selected his former commissioner for State Affairs, Aminu Abdulsalam, to serve as running mate.

The former governor, serving senator and presidential hopeful holds sway as the party leader in Kano since his defection to PDP on July 24.

The endorsement of the Kwankwasiyya candidates for senate and governorship was announced on Saturday night in Kaduna after marathon meeting.

But insiders say Mr Yusuf as a candidate is a recipe to failure in Kano. According to sources, Mr Yusuf is “arrogant, overbearing and contemptuous” politician who may not be accepted by the people.

“With Abba as a candidate, there must be implosion, rebellion and deep resentment in the Kwankwasiyya camp,” an insider said.
