2023: Kwankwaso Reveals Why He Can't Be Anyone's Running Mate

The presidential candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), Rabiu Kwankwaso, has stated that agreeing to be the running mate of anyone would cause the collapse of his party.

Kwankwaso made the remarks on Saturday during his visit to Gombe for the inauguration of the state office of NNPP where he met with elected members of the party.

While addressing journalists, he said that with how NNPP had become famous, anything less than his presidential ambition would mean the party collapsing.

Kwankwaso who confirmed that there have been talks with the Labour Party for a possible merger disclosed that the major issue was who would emerge as the presidential candidate.

From the discussion with the Labour Party, the main issue was who becomes the president if the parties merge.


“At the end of the day, some of our representatives thought that there should be a criterion in terms of age, qualification, offices held, performance and so on.

“Of course, the other side would not want that. Most of the people from there believe that the president has to go there (South-east).

“If I now decide to be the vice-presidential candidate to anybody in this country; NNPP will collapse because the party is based on what we’ve built in the last thirty years.

“I served for seventeen years as a civil servant; we are talking of 47 years of very serious hard work that’s what is rarely holding NNPP now", he said.
