Kwankwaso Sets to Leave PDP
One of the big guns in the opposition party; Senator Kwankwaso on Tuesday met with the leadership of New Nigeria People Party in a bid to finalize his coming to the party which he is expected to use for his presidential ambition.
The outgoing National Secretary of the party, Ambassador Agbo Gilbert Major, disclosed this in Abuja, on the sidelines of the Special National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting.
He said the meeting was aimed at taking crucial decisions that will reposition the party ahead of 2023 general elections.
According to him, in few days time, the two-time Kano State governor would join the party alongside his allies.
He said, “Nigerians are getting set for the general election and we are meeting to reposition the party, and the frontiers are opening, a lot of Nigerians are coming in and there is need for us to adjust and accommodate the interests that are coming in.
“These are the very crucial decisions that we are about to take and it is going to midwife a national convention which will hold within the next 30 days. We have read Nigerians speculating, the only thing I can tell you is that we are in deep talks with Kwankwaso, in fact we have almost concluded, in the next few days, we will be reverting to Nigerians to tell them what understanding we have had with him (Kwankwaso), but I can assure you that he is on his way into NNPP,” Major said.
