From Sylvanus Viashima, Jalingo
A Chieftain of the New Nigerian People’s Party (NNPP) Dr Babayo Liman has said that the presidential candidate of the party and former governor of Kano state Alhaji Rabiu kwankwaso lacks capacity to rule Nigeria as President.
Liman who disclosed this in Jalingo on Sunday said he was in the state to formally inform members of the party of his defection to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
He said that the NNPP has no structure and most of the officials of the party are ghost persons who are non existent.
Liman who until his resignation from the party was the national zonal secretary for Northeast said that he has decided to throw his weight around the candidate of the PDP Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and all the candidates of the party.
“There is a situation in the Bauchi state chapter of our party. We reported the issue to Kwankwaso five times in five months and he could not resolve it. If he can not resolve this issue within the party, how can he solve the problem of Nigeria.
“I can tell you that Kwankwaso does not have the capacity to rule Nigeria. He only ruled Kano, and has nothing to offer Nigeria. More than seventy percent of his officials are ghosts. Even the National Treasurer resigned and the other active officials in the Northeast have also resigned.
“NNPP has no structure. Only four officials out of the Sixteen officials for the Northeast were working. The rest are ghost and I could not continue working with ghost”
Liman said that “the administration of the PDP for sixteen years shows that if the party returns to power, it will salvage the nation. APC has worsened the security situation and economic woes of the country. Even Obasanjo succeeded because of help from Atiku Abubakar. That is why we want him to come back as president and continue the good work.”
