The New Nigeria Peoples Party’s (NNPP) presidential candidate, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, has called rumours that he will leave down from his position in 2023 as “mischievous.”
On Sunday, in Maiduguri, the capital of Borno State, Kwankwaso called the allegation “total garbage” when he spoke with journalists.
I don’t think any of these four political parties, at this crucial time, will accept merging together; some people are really naughty. Some people are making malicious posts and attacks on social media, but we’re all about good sportsmanship and a winning campaign.
A claim that the NNPP will defect to the APC or the PDP is ridiculous. Some observers predict that the first round of voting in the presidential election will not produce a clear victor, but we are confident in our ability to emerge victorious thanks to the support of the people.
“Some people are claiming the Northwest or the North is the only base for Kwankwaso, but they are wrong. Some people are saying Kano state is Kwankwaso’s political foundation, and I am so thrilled about it because Kano is not a small state in terms of millions of registered voters. Regrettably, some persons are now using social media as a means of campaigning; they have hired irresponsible people to spread false information for them, despite our repeated assurances to their masters that such information is false. There is no way that any of us is going to intentionally isolate ourselves for the other.
Remember that happened six months ago. Prior to our joining, NNPP was nothing like what it is today, and only God knows what it will become in the next six months.
According to Kwankwaso, Nigerians have come to the conclusion that their country is about to collapse because the signs are plain to see.
Nobody wants this country to collapse, so it’s not surprising that good-hearted people are joining the rescue effort. I was a founding member of both the PDP and the APC, but both parties have gone off the rails, forcing me and others to start something new. We did so with the NNPP, and it seems to be resonating with voters. I am overjoyed because, before to yesterday, no one in Borno State gave us much of a chance of winning the election. However, based on what I saw, I am confident that we will defeat our opponents in this state.
