Mr Kwankwaso, a former governor of Kano state, was in the Borno State capital to commission the party’s new office and formally launch the party’s activities in the state.

Maiduguri is the birthplace of the vice-presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), Kashim Shettima, and a stronghold of the ruling party.

Mr Kwankwaso’s visit came barely 48 hours after the APC-led Borno government sealed the NNPP secretariat over alleged infractions of the city’s urban planning laws. The government reversed its decision following condemnation by many Nigerians.

The Borno government later issued a statement denying its involvement in the sealing of the opposition party’s office.
