Nigeria is bleeding, says Kwankwaso

The Presidential Candidate of the New Nigerians People’s Party (NNPP), Dr. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, has said Nigeria is bleeding.

Speaking at the unveiling of his vice presidential candidate, Bishop Isaac Idahosa in Abuja, Kwankwaso said the country is bleeding from severe wounds inflicted on it by the incompetence and insincerity of operators of government.

He gave a scathing scorecard on President Muhammadu Buhari and All Progressives Congress (APC) led government.

He said, “The said reality is that our country is bleeding from several and severe wounds inflicted on her either as a result of incompetence or insincerity of the operators of government or the total lack of the understanding of how to govern a multi-cultural, multi-religious and multiethnic country like our own.

“Their insincerity and intolerance has inflicted injurious wounds to the social fabric of Nigeria. Their nepotism and parochial approach to governance has inflicted severe wounds to the country. Their ineptitude and lack of empathy has dealt a damaging blow on the body psyche of all Nigerians.

“Their condescending arrogance and sense of entitlement has further widened the fault lines in our country and their nonchalant attitude towards the core functions of governance is causing dangerous escalation of insecurity.”

Kwankwaso, a former Governor of Kano State, a former minister of defence and a former senator, also lamented the rising inflation and unemployment in the country, saying the current economic statistics in Nigeria were unacceptable.

He also decried the collapse of the tertiary institutions in the country, promising that he would give education priority when elected president in 2023.

Bishop Idahosa, while accepting his nomination as the running mate of Kwankwaso, said Nigeria was a critical juncture were a fresh start was imminent.

“Nigeria deserves a fresh start and fresh ideas. Nigeria deserves a fresh deal that will steer the country away from division and hate. A fresh deal that will steer the country away from incompetence and cluelessness; a fresh deal that will steer the country away from insecurity and economic woes,” he said.

He therefore, urged Nigerians to register and obtain voters card to be able to bring about the desired change in the country.

The 57-year-old Bishop who hails from Edo state was announced as NNPP’s VP candidate last Thursday.

Idahosa, a trained automobile engineer from the Kaduna Polytechnic, also holds a Masters and Doctorate degrees in theology and is married to Christiana Idahosa and is blessed with two children.

He is the presiding Bishop and Senior Pastor of the God First Ministry, Lekki Light Centre, Ajah, Lagos.

Earlier, the National Chairman of NNPP, Prof. Ahmed Rufai Alkali, said the party is the fastest growing party in Nigeria, adding that Kwankwaso’s sterling leadership was responsible for the growth.

“The NNPP entered the political space at the most critical time and is going to take the opportunity to give Nigerians hope because Kwankwaso is the man Nigerians are waiting for,” stressing that NNPP has a dream team and a formidable team that Nigerians are waiting for because they posses the qualities to steer the affairs of Nigeria.

“With this winning team Nigerians should be hopeful that Nigeria shall rise again. The party is committed to building bridges across all socio-political divides,” he added.

He condemned voting buying and implored Nigerians to be vigilante so that their collective franchise cannot be mortgaged by selfish politicians.
