A former Governor of Kano State, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, has said that the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) would spring surprises and achieve great fortunes in next year’s general elections.

Kwankwaso, who spoke at NNPP’s first National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting on Saturday night in Abuja, noted that the party would not act like the All Progressives Congress (APC) that pegged its presidential form at N100m.

“Let me remind Nigerians that our forms are on sale for the states Assembly positions and other positions here in the national secretariat for those who want to contest election.

“I want to encourage everybody to be like all of us here; to be people with foresight of men and women in this country. This party is all nationalists who believe in this country.

“We want everybody to go and register in their wards. Forms are very cheap. Certainly not N100m for presidential candidates and so on and so forth,” Kwankwaso said.

Meanwhile, the NNPP’s National Chairman, Prof. Rufai Alkali, charged the National Working Committee (NWC) to work assiduously towards emerging victorious in next year’s general elections.

According to him, Nigeria needs to be salvaged from the grips of bad leaders and positioned towards greatness.

Alkali said, “You must all know that these responsibilities bestowed on us are a trust we must all hold dearly and we must work very closely together to fulfil the manifest destiny of our great party and the nation.

“I need not remind you all that this party has re-bounced back into reckoning and into the Nigeria’s political space at the most decisive and challenging period of our nation’s history.

“I say decisive, because Nigerians for too long have been waiting for a political Party to salvage the Nation, to rescue our people from the visionless and directionless political elites that has abandoned the fundamental principles and grown norms of democratic governance.

“It appears to us most of the political elites have forgotten the past and do not look at the future beyond their noses.”

He also said that gradually but systematically Nigeria, the hardworking and innocent citizens of the country are being sacrificed on the altar of personal and selfish interests of few whose primary objective is only to capture power and not in the service of the people but for their personal gains.

“I also say challenges because the damage inflicted on our country and our people is too deep and too pervasive.

“Today, there is no part of our national live which has been spared, our farming populations and our trades men; members of the business community and the professional; intellectuals and security personnel,” Alkali said.
