The New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) has denied rumors that its presidential candidate, Rabiu Kwankwaso, is thinking about giving up on the presidency and supporting different candidates in the 2023 elections.
The spokesperson for the Rabiu Kwankwaso presidential campaign, Ladipo Johnson, stated that his principal is running to win.
Johnson was responding to rumors that Kwankwaso was considering endorsing either Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress or Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party for president.
He claimed that Kwankwaso will continue to run for president in 2023 since he entered the race with the faith that he would bring about the needed transformation in Nigeria.
“I do not know how and why people come up with these assertions and speculations. Kwankwaso cannot and will not step down for anyone,” he said.
“Kwankwaso is not in the race to negotiate. He has the capacity, track record for competence and political will to lead Nigeria to greater heights.
“Our candidate has no reason to step down. His path to victory and chances are very high. Competitive, yes, but his chances are very high considering his acceptance nationwide as a man of integrity,” he added.
