Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, the presidential candidate for the New Nigeria Peoples Party, made a strong promise to the citizens of Nigeria during a campaign event in Kaduna on Saturday.
He stated that if he is elected president in the upcoming February 25, 2023 presidential election, he will make it a priority to address the nation’s infrastructure deficit. This includes plans to improve and develop the country’s transportation, energy, and communication systems.
During the Northwest presidential campaign and handing of flag to the party’s governorship candidates at the main bowl of the Ahmadu Bello Stadium, Kwankwaso also reiterated his earlier commitment to providing an enabling environment in the education sector through the payment of WAEC, NECO and JAMB fees for all Nigerian students. He believes that by investing in the education of the youth, the country will be able to build a brighter future for its citizens.
Additionally, Kwankwaso made a strong statement about his plans to address drug abuse among Nigerian youth, which he noted had become a major challenge in the country. He stated that he would address the issue holistically and work to rehabilitate victims of such abuse across the country. This is a problem that has been affecting the nation for a long time, and Kwankwaso believes that it is crucial to take action and address it if the country wants to move forward.
His running mate, Bishop Isaac Idahosa, also spoke at the event, emphasizing the need for a “deliverer” like Kwankwaso as the next president of the country. He noted that the party would work to unite Nigerians and restore peace across the land. Idahosa said, “Nigeria at this critical times needs not just a president but a deliverer and Kwankwaso is the only one that can save the country from her myriad of challenges.”
He believes that Kwankwaso’s leadership and experience make him the ideal candidate to lead the country in this critical time and to bring about the necessary change that is needed.
