Former Kano State Governor, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, has announced his intention to abandon the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in favor of the New Nigeria People Party (NNPP) in the next 28 days.
Kwankwaso who made the disclosure in an interview with BBC Hausa Service said that preparations were in full gear for life after PDP.
Although he did not elaborate on the reasons for leaving the party, Kwankwaso had recently took a swipe at the two major parties (APC and PDP), saying they had nothing to offer Nigerians in 2023.
“I didn’t see anything that either APC or PDP will show or tell Nigerians to get convinced and vote for them in the coming 2023 elections.
“So I think people should now come to think of the right party and people to support and vote for so that we can rescue the present situation,” he said.
Continuing, the presidential hopeful noted that “In 2015, we gave the leadership of the state to some, thinking that they will make it, but not knowing that it won’t yield any positive outcome. That is why we are back to rescue our state”.
