Presidential candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) Rabiu Musa Kwakwanso has said that Nigerians will be shocked by the outcome of the presidential poll of the 2023 Elections.
Exuding confidence that he will emerge winner on the first ballot, the former Kano Governor denied talks for a possible alliance with the presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar ahead of the February 25 contest.
Atiku had told the Hausa Service of the BBC That he was holding talks with the candidates of the NNPP and Labour Party(LP) Peter Obi, saying one of them may likely step down and work with him. But speaking on Sunrise Daily on Channels Television, Kwankwaso described the statement as reckless.
He said he was not involved in any form of alliance talk with any candidate in the election.
He said the NNPP remains the only party in the presidential race abreast with the problems of the people as they have carried their campaign to the grassroots, traveling by road to all cities for their rallies.
He said it was unfortunate that well-respected people have decided to go live on national television to tell lies and disgrace themselves to sell their candidate.
He said the NNPP enjoyed being underrated by other parties, adding that he was not in a hurry to become President.
He said the party has the required number to win the elections on the first ballot and was not considering any form of alliance with any party.
