Rabiu Kwankwaso, the presidential candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), said Nigeria is in dire need of a visionary and credible leader that could bring about the desired growth and development.
Kwankwaso made the statement in Lokoja on Wednesday while commissioning his campaign office and the party’s secretariat in Kogi.
Shortly after his (Kwankwaso’s) arrival at the campaign office beside Dave Mercy Pharmacy, on Kogi Government House Road, he was warmly welcomed by his supporters.
Addressing a large crowd, Kwankwaso said;
“We must not give up but rise to the challenge and salvage this country from all her numerous challenges through the use of our PVCs.
“The forthcoming general elections in 2023 are a great opportunity for all Nigerians to rally around a good presidential candidate that could make the difference.”
The NNPP presidential candidate, after successfully commissioning the campaign office and party secretariat, visited the country home of a former Governor of the state, the Late Prince Abubakar Audu.
Speaking during the visit, one of Kwankwaso’s media aides, Musa Yunusa, expressed satisfaction with the reception accorded the candidate.
Yunusa, however, described Kogi as Kwankwaso’s home and that the reception was a sign of his acceptance as one who could lead the nation to greater heights if given the chance in 2023.
According to him, NNPP has good followership in Kogi and so optimistic about getting huge votes during the 2023 general elections.
