The All Progressives Congress (APC) has urged Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, the presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), to return to the party he helped found.
Speaking to reporters on Sunday in Abuja, the APC’s Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Yakubu Murtala Ajaka, asked Kwankwaso to return to the party to which he had made significant contributions.
According to the APC spokesperson, the former Kano governor is well-versed in the formation of the ruling party.
Ajaka warned Kwankwaso not to be misled by Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi and his ‘Obidient’ movement, which he claims exists only on social media, and urged the former Kano governor to retrace his steps before it was too late.
The ruling party spokesperson said Kwankwaso’s best chance of becoming president is to return to the APC, emphasising that winning two states is insufficient.
“That is why I said it was not too late for him to rejoin the APC.” Not his current sectional NNPP, where he naturally belongs and has a good chance of becoming president one day.
“Although some may be deceiving him by calling him Mr. President already, only one or two states in the North-west can make him president.” Kwankwaso needs a national party like the APC to become president. So I beg him to do the right thing before it is too late,” he said.
