APC, PDP Have Failed Nigerians, Not Fit To Lead – Kwankwaso

Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, a former governor of Kano state and the presidential candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) for the 2023 election, claims that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the main opposition party, and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) are no longer capable of providing for the needs of the general populace.

The former defense minister asked Nigerians to vote against the presidential candidates of the two major parties in 2023 on the grounds that each party has historically failed the country miserably.

The former governor stated that the parties had performed abjectly in providing the people with the benefits of democracy, and that this is reflected in the amount of instability, unemployment, economic hardship, and misery that are pervasive throughout the nation.

During a weekend consultation visit to the state, Kwankwaso spoke at Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State, and bemoaned the nation’s deteriorating infrastructure, which was made evident by the appalling Akure-Ado road.

He criticized the APC-led national and state administrations for leaving the populace to suffocate on the streets.

He urged the populace to put their faith in the NNPP to reform the nation and set it on the correct course for advancement, noting that the party has seen a rise in membership in the months since he joined the platform.

He claimed that the rising instances of insecurity across the nation and the painful economic policies, which he claimed had led to poverty, unemployment, and inflation, were sufficient reasons for the people to reject the ruling party, saying, “the way we are going now is one way to disaster in the country.”

Kwankwaso who represented Kano Central in the Eighth National Assembly said, “This our party was registered about 21 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 in 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 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 the NNPP, which is a progressive party and vote for the party come 2023.”

The former governor of Kano state, who refuted the allegations of an alliance with the PDP before the 2023 elections, claimed that the main opposition party lacks a clear national vision and vowed never to back to his old ways.

“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.

The former governor of Kano State cannot become president of Nigeria with a sectarian party like the NNPP, according to Yakubu Ajaka, the APC’s deputy national publicity secretary.

Ajaka denounced the PDP and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, as loyal supporters of the APC during elections while arguing that Kwankwaso should rejoin the ruling party, which he helped to build and had a wonderful chance to ride on to become president.

Speaking with media yesterday in Abuja, Ajaka stressed that Kwankwaso still had time to turn things around by winning just one or two states in the North West.

“Kwankwaso knew about the formation of APC. He contributed immensely to its success in 2015 and our leaders hope to repay him at the appropriate time, but he cannot be outside to be a beneficiary in the nearest future.

“So, that is why I said it’s not too late for him to return to the APC. That’s where he naturally belongs and has an assurance of becoming a president one day, and not his current sectional NNPP.

“Although some people might be deceiving him by calling him Mr. President already, but just one or two states in the North West cannot make him a president. Kwankwaso needs a national party like the APC to achieve his presidential ambition. So, I plead with him to do what is needed before it’s too late,” Ajaka said.

The APC leader remarked that Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, was only currently receiving sectional support. He emphasized that when the election campaign began, Nigerians would distinguish between boys and men in politics.

According to him, “Just like Kwankwaso, Peter Obi is only enjoying sectional sympathy but a real presidential candidate needs to enjoy acceptability from all parts of the country. So, we believe that Peter Obi should enjoy his social media frenzy for now before the real campaign starts very soon.”

Ajaka emphasized that, in his opinion, neither the PDP nor its presidential candidate would be a strong opponent in the 2023 elections.

He pointed out that while the opposition party would make a lot of noise without any supporting evidence and enjoy its propaganda for a time, Nigerian voters would finally be able to tell the difference between the PDP’s lies and the successes of the APC.

He continued by saying that the APC, which could never finish higher than second in any election and that the latest outcome of the Ekiti governorship election threatened even that second place, was a good customer of the PDP and Atiku.
