2023: Kwankwaso urges Nigerians to reject APC, PDP

PRESIDENTIAL candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso has called on Nigerians to reject the candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2023 polls.

Kwankwaso made the call in Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State capital, during the weekend.

According to him, the two major political parties failed to deliver the dividends of democracy to Nigerians over the years.

“We have seen the performances 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.

    “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. 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,” he said.

    He added, “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.”

    Kwakwaso further clarified that he is not in alliance with the PDP.

    He said, “Don’t forget we have candidates across 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.”
