Ahead of the 2023 general elections next year, the National Leader and presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Rabiu Kwankwaso, has boasted to be the most qualified presidential candidate contesting the elections.

Kwankwaso stated this Tuesday in Abuja at a workshop for social media training for party officials ahead of the poll.

Represented by Dr Abdullahi Bafa Bichi, the NNPP Presidential flag bearer criticized some of the presidential candidates for having questionable academic backgrounds, noting that “one of the candidates parades not only  suspicious primary school certificate but also secondary school certificate. 

“One of the candidates has a suspicious secondary school certificate.

Kwankwaso’s education is verifiable. He is the most educationally qualified among every candidate contesting for president.”

The former Kano state governor also criticised the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, for setting up a university for profit reasons, stating that while he was the governor of Kano state he set up two tertiary institutions for the state for free education. 

“When Kwankwaso was governor of Kano he set up two universities where both the children of the rich and the poor attended school without paying.

Today you can hardly take a flight in Nigeria without finding a beneficiary of Kwankwaso’s contributions in the Kano state education system working as a flight attendant, or as something else there.”

The NNPP candidate through his representative called on participants to “see the social media as a tool for election mobilisation,” adding that they must be able to convince the youths to the ideas of the party.”

Meanwhile, the National Publicity Secretary, Agbo Major, stressed that the party’s publicity managers must ensure that the “NNPP’s voice is be heard and resonate across the nation with its message of hope for a new Nigeria that has a future for all Nigerians.”

According to him, the training will afford various NNPP spokespersons and social media influencers to interact and brainstorm on the way forward.

At the end of the two-day exercise, “we expect to have more disciplined social media groups specialising in such areas as political education including aggressive promotion of the party’s logo/symbol programmes and manifesto, and general communication skills using all major languages,” Agbo stressed.
