Rabiu Kwankwaso, the New Nigeria Peoples Party’s (NNPP) presidential candidate, has noted that he was pleased with the pairing of Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Kashim Shettima as the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential and Vice presidential candidate.
The former Kano State governor said this while speaking in an interview on Arise Television on Sunday.
Mr Kwankwaso, who referred to Tinubu as a friend, said he can endorse the pairing even if not because he does not know what they would do differently from the current administration.
In his words:
“That is my serious concern for him. Ordinarily, if I cannot get it, I can recommend him but it’s going to be like building something on zero.”
“Bola Tinubu was my colleague in 1992, I was a deputy Speaker in the House of Reps he was a Senator, we had many political battles, 1999 we were together, I was Governor of Kano, he was Governor of Lagos.”
“Shettima was also my colleague when I was a Governor in my Second term, he is a good man, I wished him well,” Kwankwaso said.
However, the NNPP presidential aspirant raised concerns about Tinubu’s health, saying the ruling APC flagbearer should pay attention to his health.
“If you see my friend, Bola, tell him to take it easy, take good care of his health and make sure that… because I love him so much, he is my friend,” he said.
“This campaign is very rigorous, it requires a lot of effort and so on and so forth. I hope he will take it easy so that we can continue the struggle to ensure one solid and prosperous Nigeria.”
Kwankwaso also described the APC as a problem for the ticket of Tinubu and Shettima
“My only worry is the platform. This platform I don’t know. I know he is a strategist, Bola Tinubu, he is a good man. I had reasons to sit with him uncountable number of times from 1992 to date,” he said.
“I wish I will see him to ask him what he will tell Nigerians what he will do differently from what Muhammadu Buhari is doing today,” he said.
