2023: NNPP Must Not Be Underrated By APC And PDP — Uzor Kalu

The senate chief whip, Orji Uzor Kalu says former governor of Kano, Rabiu Kwankwaso, stands to benefit if the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) fail to field 2023 presidential candidates from the south-east and north-east.

Gatekeepers News reports that Kalu in a statement said the high profile defections to the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) should be of concern to PDP and APC.

He said, “The recent high profile defections to the New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP, especially in the north-west geo-political zone should not be taken for granted by our great party, the All Progressives Congress ( APC).

“I’m using this opportunity to reiterate my earlier position that the presidency should go [to] north-east if it can’t be conceded to the south-east for equity and fairness.

“The silent majority who have a working conscience could protest this injustice by supporting Engr. Rabiu Kwankwaso to clinch the presidential seat in 2023 if our party, the APC, and the opposition PDP field their candidates from any other zone aside south-east or north-east.

“It is time to unite and rally around a zone that has not produced the nation’s president since the rotation convention dispensation that began in 1999.”
