Former governor of Kano State and a presidential aspirant for the forthcoming general election under the platform of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso has urged Nigerians to reject both candidates of the All Progressive Congress (APC), and the Peoples Democracy Party (PDP) over their failure in providing succor for its citizens across all sector of governance.
Kwankwaso while speaking in Ado-Ekiti on 26th June 2022 during a consultation visit to the State, expressed his regret over the plight of commuters plying the deplorable Akure- Ado road while calling on the people to vote for the NNPP for positive transformation of the country.
Kwankwaso, who represented Kano Central in the Eighth National Assembly said, “This our party was registered about twenty-one years ago but in the last four months when I joined the party, so many people have joined us and that is why we have structures everywhere across the country. Not only that so many people have even registered including Ekiti state.
“We have seen the performance of the APC and PDP and all of us believe that they have failed the country woefully and nobody should expect anything from them again. These people in the two parties have failed and failed woefully, they have nothing to offer.
“Look at the road from Akure to Ado-Ekiti, it is in a very terrible and deplorable situation. You go around any of these cities, Abuja and other areas, you hardly see anything happening, poverty is at the highest level in this country, insecurity is also at its peak and we can’t continue like that, because of the way we are going now is one way to disaster in the country.
“So, the only way to avert that disaster is for Nigerians to go and sell the ideas of NNPP, which is a progressive party, and vote for the party come 2023.”
On the speculations relating to the alliance with the PDP ahead of the 2023 election, the former Kano State governor who denied the insinuations said the party had no clear-cut agenda for the nation and that he would never return to his past.
“Don’t forget we have candidates across the board now in NNPP ahead of the 2023 elections, so you will expect me to leave and join others in the PDP? It is not going to happen. I was a foundation member of the two major parties and they have nothing to offer again, that is why I left them and I can’t go back,” he said.
