New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) spokesman Abdulmumin Jibrin has said no miracle will see the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) or the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) win the 2023 presidential election.
TheNewsGuru.com (TNG) reports that Jibrin, a former member of the Nigerian House of Representatives, said this on Monday while stressing that NNPP presidential candidate Rabiu Kwankwaso will win the election.
Jibrin argued that APC presidential candidate Bola Tinubu cannot in any way benefit from President Muhammadu Buhari’s lead in the upcoming presidential election.
The NNPP spokesman, speaking on Channels TV Politics Today, opined that the northern votes will pour in and go to Kwankwaso because of his credibility and the confidence Northern voters have in him.
“When they do their analysis, all the time, they talk only about the PDP. They say that the PDP lost Kwankwaso, the PDP lost Peter Obi and the PDP lost 5 governors. Yes, the PDP is in crisis, the PDP is in a mess, but APC finds itself in an even more challenging and damaging situation.
“One, that 12 million vote is not there. Two, when you say that Kwankwaso left the PDP, it is assumed that he left alone with people from the PDP. Many people from APC joined him. Where do I come from? I’m not from APC?
“As it stands today, APC has lost between 70 and 80 of its support in northern Nigeria. By the time Kwankwaso absorbs those votes, particularly in the northwestern part of the country, we will be able to win the elections.
“I don’t see how the APC will win the elections. There is no miracle on earth if APC or PDP will win the next presidential election. We are winning the elections.
“The North always leans towards one particular side. The vote from the North will come in bulk. It won’t break to pieces. And because of Kwankwaso’s credibility, because of Kwankwaso’s performance, because of the confidence that Northern voters have in this man, Kwankwaso is going to substantially sweep the vote that is going to come from the North of the country.
“Kwankwaso is the beneficiary of Buhari’s 12 million votes. Certainly a politician from the North would have to inherit that because Buhari’s politics is the politics of commoners, based on the masses. None of the surviving northern politicians have that connection to the masses like Kwankwaso,” Jibrin said.
NNPP Inaugurates 2023 Presidential Campaign Council
Meanwhile, the NNPP on Monday inaugurated its 2023 Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) known as Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso (RMK2023 PCC) for the party’s success in the 2023 presidential election.
The NNPP presidential candidate, inaugurating the council in Abuja, said the party would continue to work for a new and better Nigeria from May 29.
Kwankwaso said that the “RMK2023 Presidential Campaign Council (PCC)” was made up of four bodies, including the PCC, the PCC Directorate, the Advisory Board and the PCC Committees.
He said that all the bodies would be working in sync for the success of the NNPP in the 2023 presidential elections.
He urged all Nigerians especially NNPP members especially support groups like Kwankwasiyya and TNM etc. to unite to continue mobilizing support and votes for the party.
Kwankwaso said that the “Presidential Highway Campaign” party had visited all but three states of the federation.
He said the party deliberately chose to run the road campaign to take advantage of the hardships Nigerian road users were living with across the country.
“We have traveled tens of thousands of kilometers and visited more than 300 local government areas so far.
“We have traversed difficult terrain, visiting hard-to-reach communities such as Illela in Sokoto State, Kauran Namoda in Zamfara State, Kamba in Kebbi State, Mubi in Adamawa State, Ikom and Ughep in Cross River State. .
“Geidam in Yobe State, Ikare in Ondo State, Kwoi in Kaduna State, and many other places.”
Kwankwaso said that in all the places visited, the party took the time to visit the traditional and religious leaders in the areas in its determination to take them when it finally took power.
“In particular, these leaders will be the drivers of our flagship initiative of Community Engagement and Reorientation Committees (CPRCs), which we intend to create in all 8809 districts.
“These committees will be financed directly by the Federal Government through the appropriate legislation.”
kwankwaso added that it was gratifying that NNPP met with marginalized communities from all over the country, we listened to their experiences, their complaints, their fears and their expectations.
He said the experiences in the road campaign had further strengthened NNPP’s commitment to the promises it had made to Nigerians.
“Let me remind you that we are determined to reform the education sector to improve quality and access at all levels.
“Specifically, we will provide 500,000 classrooms across the federation states to accommodate the more than 20 million out-of-school children we plan to clean from the streets of Nigeria.
“We will make all admission and employment application forms free; we will make all exams like WAEC, NECO, NABTEB, NBIAS, JAMB etc. be free;”
He added that NNPP would introduce a four-year moratorium on JAMB so that Nigerian children could use the same JAMB results to enter tertiary educational institutions.
“We will improve and expand all of our universities, polytechnics and faculties of education and raise their bar for global competitiveness.”
Kwankwaso revealed that the party would suspend its campaign rallies for a couple of days to honor an invitation from London.
“I am happy to announce that from January 12 of this month, we will begin our zonal rallies in Bauchi for the Northeast, Kaduna on the 14th for the Northwest, and Lafia on the 16th for the North Central.
“We will be pausing the zonal demonstrations for a couple of days to allow time to travel to London to honor the invitation of the Chatham House Royal Institute of International Affairs and present a discussion paper to a selected global audience.
“Immediately we return from London, we will resume the zonal rallies and we will complete the remaining zones.”
Highlights of the occasion include the launch of the party’s Fundraising Portal in support of Kwankwaso’s presidential ambition.
Kwankwaso expressed his thanks to all the supporters and volunteers for their commitment and the purchasing power of the villages.
The organization of the campaign, comprising “The Council, Administration, Advisory Council and Committees”, will be chaired by Kwankwaso, while the Campaign will be headed by a technocrat, Ms. Folashade Aliu, as the National Secretary of the Campaign. .
Boniface Aniebonam, president of the BoT; the Party’s presidential running mate, Bishop Isaac Idahosa, vice president; Prof. Rufai Alkali Vice President II; The Contact and Mobilization Committee is chaired by Buba Galadima.
