Kwankwaso Addresses Reports That He’s Planning to Step Down For Atiku
In response to rumours that the NNPP presidential candidate,Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso will leave his position to support Atiku Abubakar, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party issued a statement.
The New Nigeria Peoples Party’s presidential candidate Kwankwaso spoke via Major Agbo, the NNPP’s spokesman.
Agbo questioned, “How can anyone come out and say Kwankwaso should step down for Atiku? ” in response to the reports. No, Atiku should resign instead.
He asserts that Kwankwaso is in the race to win and that he will become the nation’s next president.
However, the NNPP spokesman did not completely rule out the prospect of alliance negotiations, which he stated would take place on its conditions.

When questioned about the status of the reported discussions between his party and the Labour Party’s presidential campaign staff, Agbo denied the information.
“Go ask Okupe” (Dr Doyin Okupe). Because he entered the negotiation with his “unusual” agenda—that Obi should be made president—he was the one who ended the initial alliance talks. Why should Obi be elected president instead of Kwankwaso? He asked.
Additionally, Agbo and Rufai Alkali, the National Chairman of the NNPP, both agreed that the claim was inaccurate.

Professor of Political Science Alkali claimed that the study was the product of individuals determined to mislead Nigerians in order to gain cheap political points.
He declared, “It is entirely false. We are not at all surprised that this narrative is now being revealed in this manner. Every intelligent Nigerian has been adhering to the pattern.
“They initially claimed that our candidate would leave to make room for Asiwaju Bola Tinubu. When we refuted it, they claimed that Peter Obi and the Labour Party had won the NNPP over. They remained silent when we gave them the details.
“Then, during the discourse at the Arewa Consultative Forum, our elders attempted to get the presidential contenders to present their manifestos.
We supported the organisers, but we also became aware of forces trying to sabotage the election by utilizing the platform to support a candidate from the North. That project failed when Kwankwaso did not show up.
