A former member of House of Representatives, Abdulmumin Jibrin, has given reasons why the Presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNP, Rabiu Kwankwaso, will not be running mate to his Labour party counterpart, Peter Obi.
Speaking during an interview on Channels Television, Sunday, Jibrin said, Kwankwaso, who is one of the most popular politicians in the northern part of the country, would garner 70% of total votes, stating that Obi can only poll 30%.
He said Kwankwaso cannot deputize for Obi because the former Kano State Governor is more experienced than Obi.
He said, “Very clearly, Kwankwaso will not be a running mate to Peter Obi. By every standard, Kwankwaso should be the presidential candidate due to his numerous experiences”.
“At the end of the day , when you look at contribution in terms of votes, it will be a ratio of about 70 to 30%. We are looking at bringing 70% of votes from the North”.
