- Rabiu Kwankwaso, a former governor of Kano, is ready to push barriers and do something quite different
- The NNPP presidential candidate's new look seen in a recent photo says this much and even much more
- In the said photo shared on Twitter on Tuesday, June 21, by Abdulmumin Jibrin, Kwankwaso was putting on a shirt and a tie, quite unlike him
A former Kano state governor, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, is known to always appear in his white traditional attire and a red and white-striped cap to march, a mark of his personality.
But a new photo of the presidential candidate of the New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP) broke this tradition as seen in a photo shared on Twitter by Abdulmumin Jibrin, the former director-general of Bola Tinubu's campaign organisation.
Looking like former President Barrack Obama of the United States (US), Kwankwaso was putting on a white shirt, and a multi-coloured tie.
In the photo, he was also folding the sleeve of his shirt as if getting ready for work.

"Our next President come 2023 insha Allah, Engr Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso PhD.
"A waiting tsunami with the North already in his kitty! As an Alumni of all the governance and leadership structures in the country, his national outlook, network, and structure can never be in doubt."

Meanwhile, Kwankwaso had confirmed that his party is in talks with the Labour Party and its presidential candidate, Peter Obi for the possibility of joining forces ahead of the 2023 general elections.
Kwankwaso who is a former Kano state governor made this revelation during an interview on Saturday, June 18.
The former governor of Kano was quoted to have said:
“We are really talking to Peter Obi, or at least saying that the committee is working to look into the matter (and cooperate with him), and friends and family are coming to talk to us about it.”
Confirming this, the NNPP said:
"We wish to inform Nigerians that, our discussions with PeterObi and the #LabourParty are still ongoing. A special committee was set to discuss arrangements. We hope for good results that will give Nigeria a chance to be alive, once again."
