The presidential candidate of the NNPP Dr. Rabiu Kwankwaso has advised Nigerians to allow anyone to Hood-wink them with cheap propaganda. He enunciated that for Nigeria to explore its maximum potential, credible people must be given the privilege to rule.
Speaking to Orient Daily recently in Lagos, the former governor of Kano state advised Nigerians to vote for a credible candidate and should not allow their choice of candidate to be Influenced by propaganda, he said: “Nigerians must have risen from their slumber by now, I’m sure that the pitiable state of the nation and the hardship that is obtainable in the country must have made them realise their mistakes, vote for a candidate with good political record and profile because almost everyone that is contesting has ruled in one capacity or the other, how did the person perform when he ruled, I’m very proud to say that I did excellently well as the governor of Kano state, I was able to settle the debt that incurred before I became the governor, as a governor, I never borrowed money like other governors, I took beggars away from the streets and empowered them, please ask them what they have done before you vote for them”.
He decried the ASUU strike and reiterated his love and passion for education,” as a governor, I introduced free feeding and Uniforms for every pupil in the entire Kano, this act increased school enrollment figures from one million in 2011 to over three million in 2015, I also gave them free education at all levels, I established 230 secondary schools”.
Election in Nigeria has always been marred by gross irregularities and malpractices, even right from the first and second republic, he implored the INEC chairman to make himself relevant and make history in Nigeria as someone that conducted a credible election in Nigeria, “professor Yakubu has a golden opportunity to make Nigerians cherish and love him forever and what will determine that Is the way he handles this election, lot of things went wrong in the last election but Yakubu has to his fate in his hands”.
