The presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Rabiu Kwankwaso has blamed the nation's woes on the wrong choices made by its leaders in the past 24 years.
While speaking at the Chatham House in London, UK, the former Defence Minister listed some of Nigeria's most pressing challenges, adding that he aspires to rule the country because he understands them.
“We can point fingers at all sorts of factors allegedly responsible for our situation, from coronavirus to global economic recession, from Western powers to international capital, etc.
“But for me, we are where we are because of the mistakes and the wrong choices made by the very people entrusted with the business of governing Nigeria in the last 24 years", he noted.
“I understand the issues involved, the mistakes that were made, the wrong priorities that were set, and together with our team, we are better connected with the hopes and aspirations of the Nigerian citizens”, Kwankwaso added.
