Rabiu Kwankwaso And Isaac Bishop Idahosa
KanyiDaily had earlier announced the selection of Bishop Idahosa, who is from Edo State, and the Senior Pastor of God First Ministry, also known as Illumination Assembly, with its headquarters at Lekki Light Centre (LLC), Ajah, Lagos.
A statement by Muyiwa Fatosa, media aide to Kwankwaso, Bishop Idahosa, said the 57-year-old cleric was chosen “after careful consideration and meticulous screening of more than 20 prospective candidates, all of whom were eminently qualified to run with him.”
It added, “Idahosa was selected because of his outstanding record, his impeccable integrity, his broad understanding of the Nigerian State and its contemporary challenges, his undiluted commitment to improving the conditions of Nigerians, and his sincere believe that a New and Better Nigeria is possible if we work together with sincerity, tolerance, competence, and faith.
“A self-made achiever and a credible Nigerian, Bishop Idahosa is also selected because he represents the definition of a true role-model for the Nigerian Youth”, the statement said.
“Sen. Kwankwaso expresses happiness that “this patriotic Nigerian man-of-God will work with him in the journey to save the country from the current drift and create a new Nigeria where justice, equity, fairness, unity, security and development are assured.
“Bishop Idahosa will be publicly and officially unveiled to Nigerians on Monday, July 18, 2022 at the International Conference Centre, Abuja, by 10am.”
Rabiu Kwankwaso’s choice comes after he failed to get the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi to be his running mate for the 2023 general election.
