The former Kano State governor said the political system has failed and that is why he decided to join the NNPP in order to create a new path for the country.

 
The presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Rabiu Kwankwaso has opened up on why he left the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
 
According to him, the reason is because he was angry with the political system.
 
Kwankwaso stated this on Sunday in Abuja at a town hall meeting organised by Arise Television and the Centre for Democracy and Development (CDD) for presidential candidates.
 
The former Kano State governor said the political system has failed and that is why he decided to join the NNPP in order to create a new path for the country.
 
He said: “I’m also angry with the system like every other Nigerian and it is because of those reasons that some of us are angry to the extent of leaving the PDP and the APC because we feel there are better ways of doing things in this country.

“We believe the system has failed and that is why we have decided to go to New Nigeria Peoples Party, the unscathed party in this country.”
 
Speaking further, Kwankwaso argued that the constitution of the country has addressed the ethnic bias of some candidates’ campaigns.
 
He added that any presidential candidate that came out in defence of ethnicity, tribe, religion, or region has lost the election even before the election.
 
He added, “The Constitution of this country has taken care of that. Any presidential candidate that came out in defence of ethnicity, tribe, religion, region has lost the election even before the election.”
 
Kwankwaso observed that for a candidate to win a presidential election, he or she must have won the most popular votes and win in two-thirds or 24 of the 36 states.

“North cannot win elections on its own; South cannot win elections on its own,” he stressed.
