The presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Senator Rabiu Musa Kwakwanso, has described the promoters of his rumoured merger with another party as failed politicians.
Kwankwaso said this on Thursday, December 8, while speaking with newsmen in Abeokuta, shortly after he addressed the NNPP members at the party secretariat in the state capital, The Punch reported.
The NNPP presidential candidate denied that he planned a merger of the party with other political parties ahead of the 2023 general election.
Describing the merger rumour as “absolute nonsense”, Kankwaso expressed optimism that NNPP will be victorious in 2023.
“That’s absolute nonsense. You see we believe that we are not above the three or four parties in this country, but by 2023, next year, by the grace of God, the NNPP will win the election at national and all other levels.
“So, these are people who are failed politicians who have nothing to tell Nigerians other than to spread unnecessary rumour of a merger.
“Merger is already gone. We have our candidates. In all the parties, everybody is campaigning. So, disregard that nonsense.”
