2023: Kwankwaso reveals why he dumped PDP, APC

The Presidential Candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, has revealed why he dumped the two major party in the country, Peoples Democratic Party and All Progressives Congress.

Kwankwaso spoke on Sunday at a forum with the Nigerian Guild of Editors, NGE, and senior journalists in Lagos.

He said he left the PDP because of the ideological differences among the people that formed it, stating that PDP was formed solely to take power away from the military.

Kwankwaso also disclosed that he decided to dump APC having joined the party from PDP because the ruling party didn’t meet its expectations and hopes for a better Nigeria.

“NNPP is the only party growing now and the growth will continue as the 2023 polls approach. The other parties have nothing to say again. I was a founding member of the PDP, which was formed to kick the military out of power. There was no ideology behind the formation of PDP other than kicking the military out.

“After kicking out the military, we realized our differences. It was one of the reasons I lost re-election as Kano governor in 2003. So we have to think of getting a progressive party, and five of us, PDP governors, had to move and join in forming APC.

“ We also realized that APC has issues and our expectations were dashed. We decided to form a party of like minds. However, when the INEC refused to register our party, we looked around and found NNPP. It meets our beliefs and ideology. We are happy that we left APC and PDP and joined NNPP.

“Like us, there are millions of Nigerians who are tired of the status quo. By status quo I mean APC and PDP, who through bad leadership are responsible for the insecurity, bad infrastructure, poor economy and other problems we have come to correct.
