Kwankwaso Gives Reasons Why He Can’t Be Peter Obi’s Running Mate

The presidential candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), Rabiu Kwankwaso , has cut short many expectations after he submitted that he can’t be a running mate to Peter Obi of the Labour Party because he is more qualified than him.

He added that accepting to run as Peter Obi’s vice presidential candidate will collapse the NNPP party, which he has suffered to build in the last 30 years.

According to People’s Gazette, Kwankwaso made these submissions while speaking on Saturday in Gombe State.

Noting that his political profile and wealth of experience having served in various capacities had helped in bringing NNPP to limelight within a short time, the former governor of Kano State insisted that Obi should rather deputies him.

He stated: “ I served for 17 years as a civil servant; we are talking of 47 years of very serious hard work that is what is rarely holding NNPP now.

”Accepting to run as Mr. Obi’s Vice Presidential candidate will collapse NNPP. The party is based on what we have built in the last 30 years.
“One issues raised during discussions for merger with the LP, was that most of the people  from there believe that the presidency has to go there ( South East), but presidency going to the South-East in 2023 must be done based on strategy, political calculation and equation.

”The South-East are good in business and are well talented but they should learn politics ,”in politics, they are at the bottom line.”

Kwankwaso on his choice of running mate stated; “There were options to pick from the South, and one of them is the Labour Party man you are talking about.”

His statement has generated a lot of angry reactions on social media as many Nigerian, believably Peter Obi supporters , advised their candidate to shun the former Kano State Governor and look for another running mate.
