Rabiu Kwankwaso, the Presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), has labelled the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, and Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, as dead political parties who have run out of ideas of what Nigeria deserves anymore.
He made this revelation during his visit to Ado-Ekiti, as part of his campaign activities in the southwest part of the nation to seek for votes ahead of the 2023 polls.
While Speaking at the Palace of the Ewi of Ado-Ekiti, Oba Rufus Adeyemo Adejugbe, Kwakwaso attacked both parties over what he called bad leadership and economic problem, going further that the two parties that have governed Nigeria since 1999 has failed the people of Nigeria.
Kwakwaso, a two-term governor of Kano state, pointed to his achievements when he ruled Kano state, saying his track record is enough for Nigerians to vote massively for him, and also promised to make life worthy of living for Nigerians if he’s elected to the top seat.
“APC and PDP are dead, they are finished, and it is our party that will win the next year’s Presidential Election by God’s grace, we are on the ground in the North, we will win the polls.
“Why I’m different from all Presidential Candidates is that I go around the country on roads, not only the state capital, not only the local government areas, this made me had first-hand information on the way and manner our people live.
“The NNPP is based on the talakawa (masses), voters and good people of this country who believe in us. Nigerians know the APC and the PDP very well, and they’ve failed. The two political parties themselves know that they’ve failed. The only chance they have is to buy votes.
“If the Election takes place today, NNPP has a brighter chance, no Political party can defeat NNPP, the PDP has been wounded in the Southeast by the emergence of some Political parties, of course, in the North, we have caged PDP, even in the South South they are no longer popular because of the Presidential primary contest, and the APC has failed the citizens, no right thinking Nigerian will want the status quo to remain, meaning this terrible situation to continue.
“I’m part of the formation of the PDP in 1999, so also the APC, Unfortunately, the two Political parties drew Nigeria back to square one, or even worst in performance, this is why we formed the NNPP as a credible alternative to the two Political parties, we want new Nigeria. So, I’m so happy we have this party, NNPP, and also happy that all Nigerians, especially those earning their living, especially the masses, women and young men, are trooping into the NNPP.”
