However, his tenure was marked by controversy, facing opposition from various quarters and aligning himself with Yoruba President Olusegun Obasanjo. Despite his efforts, he lost the 2003 election to his rival, Malam Ibrahim Shekarau.

In 2022, Kwankwaso made a significant move by leaving the PDP and joining the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP). He contested and won the presidential primary held in Abuja later that year. However, during the 2023 Nigeria presidential election, Kwankwaso and his running mate, Bishop Isaac Idahosa, secured fourth place with nearly 1.5 million votes. Before the general election, Kwankwaso was invited, along with other candidates, to the Royal Institute of International Affairs, Chatham House, UK, to discuss his vision for Nigeria.

On March 26, 2024, Mustapha Kwankwaso‘s nomination as commissioner by Kano State Governor Alhaji Abba Kabir Yusuf stirred controversy due to his familial ties to Sen. Rabiu Kwankwaso, a former governor of the state. While some critics argue that this nomination could result in conflicts of interest and potential favouritism, others defend the decision as a means to leverage the expertise and experience of the younger Kwankwaso in governance. The unfolding events will determine this nomination’s impact on Kano’s political landscape.
