Kawu, who served three terms in the House of Representatives of which he served as principal officer for eight years, declared his intention to run for the seat at a well-attended event in Sumaila, Kano State.
At the event attended by Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, represented by the commissioner for Local Government Affairs, Mirtala Sure Garo, the ex-lawmaker said that his 12 years experience 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 gives him an edge over other contestants.
“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.
Asked if he has the mental capacity and physical fitness to be in the Senate, Kawu said he would be marking his 50th birthday in March, adding that he is well prepared to represent the largest senatorial district in Nigeria.
“It is unfortunate that after we formed the ruling party, APC on the principle of change and radical revolution, some elements hijacked the process and made it difficult to achieve the set objectives.
“Despite all the difficulties and challenges, we will do our best to uphold the manifesto of our great party, APC. If elected into the Senate, I will join hands with progressive minded Nigerians in order to move this country forward”, Kawu said.
In the course of the declaration, the SA to the President distributed poverty alleviation materials to party supporters provided by some lawmakers from the House of Representatives, Kano State House of Assembly and well-wishers.
Lawmakers from the state assembly were led by Hon. Suwidi Kademi Gaya, while the APC chairman of Albasu Local Government, lliya Hungu led the party officials.
