NNPP Crisis: Why I Failed To Fulfil One Of Shekarau’s Request – Kwankwaso 

The New Nigerian People’s Party (NNPP) has promised the camp of former Kano State governor, Malam Ibrahim Shekarau more prestigious positions if it stands by the party till it wins the 2023 elections.

The party’s presidential candidate, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, spoke against the backdrop of a rumour that Shekarau may defect to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) over an alleged failure to fulfil the terms of an agreement they reached before Shekarau’s defection to the NNPP.

Explaining why the party could not meet one of the requests made by Shekarau’s camp, Kwankwaso denied that there was a rift between him and Shekarau, the party’s Kano Central Senatorial candidate.

Kwankwaso, in an interview with BBC Hausa, said the rumour circulating that both of them had grudges was untrue, adding that there was nothing like that in the party.

“There is no agreement that was not fulfilled other than that of contestants. We have tried our best to honour the agreement but time couldn’t permit us,” Kwankwaso said.

According to him, most of the people brought by Shekarau’s side to get tickets for elective positions joined the NNPP at a time when INEC would not accept their candidacy.

However, he said that if the party wins the election and forms a government, Shekarau’s associates would get more prestigious positions.

Kwankwaso added that this would not cause any problem in the NNPP.
