The presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, has expressed optimism that he would win next year’s election because the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) are dead and have nothing to offer Nigerians.
Kwankwaso spoke in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital, when he visited the state in continuation of his campaign tour in the South West geopolitical zone ahead of the poll.
Speaking at the Palace of the Ewi of Ado-Ekiti, Oba Rufus Adeyemo Adejugbe, Kwankwaso said the APC and PDP have failed the country.
Kwankwaso, a former governor of Kano State, said, “APC and PDP are dead; they are finished, and it is our party that will win next year’s presidential election by God’s grace. We are on ground in the North; we will win the polls.

“Why I’m different from all presidential candidates is that I go round the country on roads, not only the state capital, not only the local government areas. This made me have first-hand information on the way and manner our people live.
“The NNPP is based on the talakawa (masses), voters and good people of this country who believe in us. Nigerians know the APC and the PDP very well and they have failed. The two political parties themselves know that they have failed. The only chance they have is to buy votes,” Kwankwaso said.
The APC National Publicity Secretary, Barr Felix Morka, neither answered his phone call nor responded to an SMS sent to him for comment on the matter.
