Rabiu Kwankwaso, the New Nigeria Peoples Party presidential candidate has stated that the ruling All Progressives Congress and the Peoples Democratic Party failed Nigerians, hence the reason for the suffering in the country.
Kwankwaso stated this during his visit to Asaba as part of his campaign tour in the South-South to canvass for votes ahead of the February 2023 general polls.
He boasted that neither the ruling APC nor the PDP can defeat the NNPP in the forthcoming polls.
He said, “I’m happy for the reception given to me in Asaba, the people have accepted me because I have all it takes to deliver this country from the bondage of APC and PDP.
“PDP and APC put together are what we are suffering today. These two parties have failed Nigerians. Let me tell you, PDP is bad, and APC is very bad.
“I was one of the founding fathers of PDP, they failed and we joined hands to form APC, again APC failed. That’s why we moved to NNPP to save this country.
“Poor leadership, lack of capacity, and integrity mostly characterised PDP and APC. They are only interested in themselves and their family.”
On the endorsement of the LP candidate by former President Olusegun Obasanjo, Kwankwaso said the endorsement of the candidate is inconsequential because he had been endorsed by the masses.
''You can’t sit anywhere and start endorsing somebody. The presidency is not based on ethnicity,” he added.
