Rabiu Kwankwaso, the presidential candidate for the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), disparaged the Labour Party (LP) on Wednesday, calling it a sectarian “built on ethnicity and religion.”
This was mentioned by Kwankwaso while he was speaking at the London-based Chatham House about “Nigeria’s 2023 elections: Service delivery and policy choices.”
The former governor of Kano State criticized his opponent’s party before taking aim at the audience member who asked the question about Peter Obi of the LP, who obviously found the line of questioning insulting.
“The issue we face is that. Without even asking, I’m certain that the individual who was standing there is from a particular group or location,” he remarked.
“If your party is built on race and religion, it differs from the Labour Party and, of course, from the New Nigeria Peoples Party, which is a national party,” he added.
He continued by saying, “While we’re blaming leaders for being this or that, I believe that followers also need to learn how to be Nigerians, rather than just residents of one region.”
While making the speech, he revealed and said, “Let me say that I was one of those initially wanting to work together with the Labour Party, but unfortunately at that time, Labour Party was under very serious media hype and therefore they could not see reason.”
