Atiku Abubakar, former Vice-President, says denying Rabiu Kwankwaso, ex-governor of Kano, the use of Eagle Square for the declaration of his presidential ambition is “unfortunate”.

In a tweet on Wednesday, Atiku condemned the “last-minute cancellation” of the approval granted to Kwankwaso.

He said President Muhammadu Buhari used the same premises for his presidential declaration in 2014 during a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) administration “without hindrance”.

Atiku wrote: “The last minute cancellation of an approval granted @RMKwankwaso is unfortunate.

“On October 15, 2014, under the @officialPDPNig led administration, then presidential aspirant; @MBuhari, declared for President at Eagle Square with no hindrance whatsoever. This was a work day.”

Kwankwaso on Tuesday said he was informed that he cannot use Eagle Square and the Abuja International Conference for his presidential declaration.

According to a statement by the Kwankwaso Campaign Organisation, the senator’s request was rejected in a letter signed by Usman Mukhtar Raji for the facility manager of Integrated Facility Management Services Ltd.

The company manages both the Abuja International Conference and Eagle Square.

Meanwhile, the police have denied sealing off Eagle Square, as alleged by the Coalition of United Political parties (CUPP).
