Kwankwaso Reacts Over Plan To Step Down For Atiku
Dr. Rabiu Kwankwaso has reacted to reports that he’s planning to step down for the Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
Kwankwaso who is the presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party spoke through the spokesman for the NNPP, Major Agbo.
Reacting to the report, Agbo, asked, “How can anybody come out to say Kwankwaso should step down for Atiku? No, it is Atiku that should step down.”
According to him, Kwankwaso is in the race to win, stressing that he will emerge the next president of the country.
The NNPP spokesperson did not, however, rule out the possibility of alliance talk, which he said would be done on its terms.
When asked about the update on the alleged talks between his party and the presidential campaign team of the Labour Party, Agbo dismissed the report.
“Go and ask Okupe (Dr Doyin Okupe). He was the one who scuttled the first alliance talk because he came into the negotiation with his ‘unusual’ agenda that Obi should be made the president. How can Obi be president over Kwankwaso?”
Also, the National Chairman of NNPP, Rufai Alkali, also shared the same position as Agbo when he described the report as untrue.
Alkali, a Professor of Political Science said the report was the handiwork of persons bent on deceiving Nigerians to score cheap political points.
