Sheikh Muhammad Aminuddeen, the Chief Imam of Daawah Jumuat Mosque, Kano, has urged the presidential candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party, NNPP, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso to pursue his presidential ambition with vigour.
The Chief Imam is the son of late Sheikh Aminuddeen Abubakar, a popular Islamic cleric in Kano and founder of Daawah Group of Nigeria.
Delivering the Eid-El-Kabir sermon to thousands of worshippers, including Mr Kwankwaso on Saturday, the Imam said the former governor of Kano State “has all the qualities to lead Nigeria and has outshone presidential candidates of the APC and PDP.”
He noted that Mr Kwankwaso “is very passionate about Nigeria’s developments”.
The Sheikh added that the former Defence Minister was a close ally of late Sheikh Aminuddeen, who died in 2015.
He prayed to Allah to salvage Nigeria from the current security challenges and guide President Muhammadu Buhari to lead the country successfully.
The prayer was also attended by the NNPP Gubernatorial candidate in Kano Abba Kabir Yusuf and his running mate Comrade Aminu Abdussalam, among other dignitaries.
