Former governor of Kano state and presidential candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) for the 2023 election, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, has said the two major political parties; the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) have failed to provide succour for Nigerians across all sectors of governance.
The NNPP presidential candidate, therefore, called on the citizens of the country to reject the candidates of the APC and PDP during next year’s elections.
According to him, “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.”
Kwankwaso, who spoke at the weekend in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti state capital during a consultation visit to the state, lamented over the plights of commuters plying the deplorable Akure-Ado road, castigating the APC-led federal and state governments for abandoning the people to suffer on the road.
While calling on the people to have trust in the NNPP to transform the country and place it on the right path to progress, he explained that the party has been experiencing surge in membership in the last few months since he joined the platform.
According to him, the rising cases of insecurity across the country and excruciating economic policies which he said have resulted in poverty, unemployment, inflation were enough reasons for the people to reject the ruling party, adding: “The way we are going now is one way to disaster in the country.”
On speculations that he would form alliance with the PDP ahead of the 2023 election, the former Kano state governor denied the insinuations, saying the party lacked clear-cut agenda for the nation and that he would never return to his past.
