In less ninety days to the presidential election, the New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP, presidential candidate, Rabiu Kwankwaso, has dispelled reports that would adopt candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar in the forthcoming presidential election.
Kwankwaso clarified he has not stepped down for the Waziri of Adamawa.
Kwankwaso made this comment while meeting with the Nigeria Guilds of Editors, NGE, in Lagos.
He also maintained that there was no need to decamp from PDP if he would step down for Atiku only a few months to the presidential election.
“Some people are saying that I am stepping down for Atiku; why then did I leave the party? These are the issues; you see the problem with that party was that there are so many people who believed that they are highly privileged
“In a democracy, people are free to follow any political party, you cannot sit there and start dictating that I like this one, or you do not like the other one.”
The former minister said his ideology and experience is not in agreement with that of his rivals which can be traced back to when he was a governor in Kano State.
