3 Min Read

A former federal lawmaker, Abdulmumin Jibrin, says the presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso now controls the northern votes of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Jibrin, who is the Official Spokesperson of the Kwankwaso Presidential Campaign, said this as a guest on a Channels Television’s programme.

He had earlier taken to Twitter to share photos of the mammoth crowd of supporters that besieged the presidential candidate’s convoy during visits to Nasarawa and Bauchi states.

Jibrin spoke amid speculations that the NNPP candidate could ask his supporters to vote for the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

He described the speculations as a lie that had been debunked on several occasions.

He added that no presidential candidate could possibly get as many votes as Kwankwaso in the February 25, 2023, presidential polls.

“We have debunked these lies over and over again. It is an attempt to give a wrong impression to the public for one or two parties to be able to raise their standing in public.

“Kwankwaso is a practical politician, we are serious-minded people. We are not in this race for anyone and I have said it over and over again.

“People should disregard all these rumours that ‘Kwankwaso is working for Asiwaju, We are going to merge with APC’.

“How will he do that? Somebody who is controlling the heart of the north. Somebody who is the beneficiary of the 12 million Buhari’s votes.

“Kwankwaso is the most popular person, most loved. He is the person who is going to control those votes. Now look at the dynamics of the election today, there is no sitting governor in the northern part of the country that is contesting for the presidency so every governor has its peculiar challenges in his state.

“What the governors are interested in is to deliver their states. They know it is dangerous for you within your states to say you are going against Kwankwaso because Kwankwaso has his own direct connection with the masses.

“In the entire northern part of the country, nobody is going to get the quantum of votes, Kwankwaso is going to pull out,” Jibrin said.
