2023: Leaders Endorsing Candidates Are Making A Big Mistake — Kwankwaso

The presidential flag bearer of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Rabiu Kwankwaso has spoken on political leaders endorsing candidates ahead of the 2023 election.

Labour Party's Peter Obi recently got endorsements from former president Olusegun Obasanjo and south-south leader, Edwin; something that Kwankwaso says is a big mistake.

While speaking on Wednesday during a visit to Governor Godwin Obasanjo at the Government House in Benin, the NNPP flag bearer.

According to him, the endorsements are based on religious and ethnic sentiments.

“Some of the people… we have seen on the news that they are supporting Mr A or Mr B, I think it is a big mistake.

"These are leaders I respect. There is a time in your life when you become a real statesman, not a politician.

“I can tell you also that any candidate or party that comes out with the face of ethnicity or the issue of religion, that party, that candidate, I can assure, at the national level, has failed that election before it starts.

“And I want to advise our leaders: they should stop disgracing themselves. We have so much respect for them", he stated.
