To this end Miqati has officially joined the race for the Kaduna governorship in 2019, asking for support from Kaduna people.
Miqati who joined the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2000, did offered himself for Kaduna State governorship contest in 2007 and 2011 but lost during the primary elections.
The desire to serve the people of Kaduna State, according to Miqati, has been the driving force right from the time he joined the party.
While declaring his intention to contest for the position of governor of Kaduna State again in 2019 at the PDP secretariat in Kaduna State, said the instinct came after a careful review of the current situation in the State and his party as well as consultation within the political circle.

“I have remained a faithful, loyal and humble member of the party giving my token contributions to the development and growth of the party at local, state and national levels.”
