The former governor of Kano State and the presidential flag bearer of the New Nigeria People’s Party, Rabiu Kwankwaso, said that the All Progressives Congress and the People’s Democratic Party have failed Nigerian over the years and Nigerians should endeavour to reject them in the forthcoming general election.
Mr Kwankwaso said the two major political parties have failed the country since 1999 in all sectors and could not succour Nigerians.
WAKADAILY reported that, APC has earlier invited Kwankwaso to return to the ruling party now so he could stand a chance to become president before is too late for him.
The former governor has made it clear that he can never associate himself with the party, desperate the fact that he has contributed awfully.
Kwankwaso, who spoke on Sunday in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital during a consultation visit to the State.
“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’s a very terrible and deplorable situation. You go around the country’s cities, Abuja, and other areas, 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.”
According to him, “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.
Reacting to what the Deputy National Publicity Secretary of APC, Yakubu Ajaka, said that, Nigerains are only deceiving him on social media by call him Mr President, which Ajaka further invited him to join the party.
He said “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,”
“Don’t forget 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,” He added.
