The Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on National Assembly Matters (House of Reps), Hon. Suleiman Abdulrahman Kawu Sumaila, has declared his intention to contest the Kano South senatorial seat. Kawu, a former thirdterm member of the House of Representatives, who served as principal officer for eight years, declared his intention for the seat at a well-attended event in Sumaila, Kano State.
In a statement in Abuja, Kawu said his experience of 12 years in the House and two-term as a member of the body of principal officers as well as his current experience as a presidential liaison officer gave him an edge over others.
The event was attended by many distinguished personalities, including Governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, who was represented by the Commissioner of Local Government Affairs, Murtala Sule Garo. Kawu said he had the requirement to represent the zone, having worked in the House of Representatives at the highest level. ‘Being a founding member of APC, a former gubernatorial aspirant in Kano and member of the 2015 Presidential Campaign Council of APC is an added advantage,” he said.
