Ahead of the 2023 election, the Presidential candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party and national leader of the Kwankwasiya movement, Rabiu Kwankwaso has affirmed that victory is sure and Bola Tinubu and Atiku Abubarkar are no threats to him.
Speaking in an interview with Punch, Kwankwaso said NNPP is popular across the country and he will not be stepping down for anyone.
The presidential candidate said Nigerians are yearning for someone who can unite the country, improve the education system and end the issues of insecurity.
Kwankwaso added that his party have always cared for Nigerians, especially the poor masses.
He said: “I won’t be stepping down for anyone, our party is popular across the country, and we’re sure of victory at the polls.
Our candidacy is based on capacity and performance. Nigerians will not vote for any experiment now, people are looking for those that have done it better in the past, and people who are trusted. Nigerians want someone that can unite Nigeria, improve the education system, and end the issue of incessant insecurity. We’ve always cared for the people. And many, especially the poor masses, were happy that I got the presidential ticket of the NNPP.”
On the issue of seeing Atiku and Tinubu as threats, Kwankwaso said it’s not in his power to defeat them but the masses who would vote them out.
According to Kwankwaso the difference between him and the other candidates is clear especially as they have nothing new to tell Nigerians.
He said: “It is not me that would defeat Tinubu and Atiku, rather, it is the masses of this country that believes in us. Although I and the party will only be a symbol on the ballot paper, it is the people that will go to the polling booths to vote them out because the difference between me and the two other major candidates is very clear. They are well-known to Nigerians, and they have nothing new to tell Nigerians. And I am also well-known, and the people know what I stand for.”
