The Presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Rabiu Kwankwaso, has asked the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to take the upcoming 2023 elections easy.
He stated this on Monday in a letter to AriseTv host Dr Ruben Abati. He also noted that Tinubu should take good care of his health.
Kwakwanso, while responding to a question on Tinubu’s choice of Shettima, said: “Bola Tinubu was my colleague in 1992. I was Deputy Speaker House of Reps, and he was a Senator.
“We had many political battles with him in 1999 when we were together. I was the governor of Kano, and he was the governor of Lagos. We also worked together to form APC.
“Shettima was also my colleague as governor during my second term. He is a gentleman. He is a good man. I wish him well.
“But if you see my friend, Bola, tell him to take it easy, take good care of his health and make sure that… because I love him so much, he is my friend.
“This campaign is very rigorous. It requires a lot of effort and so on. I hope he will take it easy so we can continue the struggle to ensure one solid and prosperous Nigeria,” he said.
“I’m so happy with that combination; my only worry is the platform (the APC). This platform…I don’t know.
“Bola Tinubu is a strategist. He is a good man. I had reasons to sit with him countless times from 1992 till date.
“I wish I would see him and ask what he’ll do differently from what the President, Muhammadu Buhari, is doing today. That is my serious concern for him.”
