2023: Kwankwaso speaks on surrendering for Tinubu, Atiku
The presidential candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) for the 2023 election, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, has emphasized that he would not forsake his presidential ambition for any candidate.
This comes as viral reports allege that Kwankwaso is about to forfeit his presidential ambition for other flag bearers including candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, and that of All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Kwankwaso, a former governor of Kano State, argued that his party, the NNPP, is prominent across Nigeria, and “we are sure of victory at the polls”.
As contained in a tweet from his official twitter page on Saturday: “I’m not in any way part of an alliance that will require me to step down from the race. I therefore call on the public to disregard this mischievous conjecture.
“I also specifically appeal to the media to uphold the tenets of their profession by being fair in their reportage,” he said.
