The presidential candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, has said Nigerians should reject the ruling All Progressives Congress and the opposition Peoples Democratic Party for failing Nigerians over the years.
Kwankwaso stated this in Ado Ekiti at the weekend, during a consultation visit to the state on his presidential bid. He noted that the two parties had since 1999 failed in all sectors and could not succour Nigerians, bemoaned the plight of passengers plying the Ado – Akure Road linking the capital cities of Ondo and Ekiti states.
The former governor of Kano State claimed that the tragedy was imminent due to the APC government’s purported incapacity in the economy and security sectors.
He said, “The only way to avert that disaster is for Nigerians to go and sell the ideas of the NNPP, which is a progressive party, and vote for the party come 2023.
“We have seen the performance of the APC, and the 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 the country’s cities, Abuja, and other areas, and 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 the way we are going now is one way to disaster in the country.”
Kwankwaso denied insinuations that his party would team up with the PDP, saying, “We have candidates across the board in the 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.
