The New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) presidential candidate for the 2023 election, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, has called on Nigerians to reject the candidates of the All Progressives Congress and the Peoples Democratic Party, stating that they had failed the nation over the years.
Kwankwaso said APC and PDP have failed to provide assistance for Nigerians across all sectors of governance.
The former Kano State governor added that all socio-economic development indices are rising daily on the negative side.
Kwankwaso, who represented Kano Central in the Eighth National Assembly, stated this on Sunday in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital, during a consultation visit to the State.
He further stated that the rising cases of insecurity across the country and excruciating economic policies, which he said had resulted in poverty, unemployment, and inflation, were enough reasons for the people to reject the ruling party.
He concluded by saying that; “the way we are going now is one way to disaster in the country.”
“This our party was registered about twenty one years ago but in the last four months when I joined the party, so many people have joined us and that is why we have structures everywhere across the country. Not only that so many people have even registered including Ekiti state.
“We have seen the performance of the APC and 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 8 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, insecurity 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.”
On the speculations relating to alliance with the PDP ahead of the 2023 election, the former Kano State governor who denied the insinuations, said the party had no clear-cut agenda for the nation and that he would never return to his past.
“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. 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.
