Buba Galadima, a member of the New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP), has stated the party’s presidential candidate, Rabiu Kwankwaso is more sophisticated than Peter Obi and cannot be his running mate in the 2023 presidential election.
He made the claim on Monday while featuring on Arise Television’ Morning Show.
Mr Galadima during the show noted that those clamouring for Kwankwaso to be the running mate to former Anambra state governor are not politicians.
Galadima backed his claim, stating that the Kwankwasian movement has been in force for the past 32 years, while that of Peter Obi started just two months ago and reiterated that there is no way the NNPP candidate can deputize Obi.
In his words:
“Those who said Chief Peter Obi could not be Kwankwaso’s running mate are not politicians.
“They just started a movement two months ago while the Kwankwasian movement has been on ground for 32 years and the primary reason for the movement is for Kwankwaso to become President.
Mr Galadima claimed that no Nigerian has ever performed excellently like Kwankwaso did when he was Kano state governor and also argued that the NNPP presidential flagbearer has more educational qualifications than any other political party’s presidential candidate. He said:
“No Nigerian has ever performed well while in office like Alhaji Kwankwaso. I understand that Peter Obi was the governor of Anambra State and he did his best but not like Kwankwaso.”
