Presidential candidate of New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, has deplored what he called mass suffering across the country.
Kwankwaso said in Yola on Wednesday that Nigerians have become helpless orphans, lacking even some of the basic needs of life, including household needs and security of life and property.
He attributed this to poor governance, which he said must change.
Kwankwaso, who was in the Adamawa State capital where he commissioned the state secretariat of the NNPP, said the country urgently needs an alternative political platform and leader to bail it out of ineffective leadership.
“Today, Nigerians are like orphans. Everyone is forced to be on his own. NNPP is the alternative platform to change the narrative,” Kwankwaso said.
The newly-commissioned NNPP state secretariat is in Yola Town, near the Lamido Adamawa Palace, in Yola South Local Government Area.
This makes the NNPP different from most other active political parties in Adamawa State which have their secretariats in the Jimeta axis of the Yola capital city.
Daily Post reports that the NNPP is currently the third most prominent political party in Adamawa State after the big two: All Progressives Congress (APC) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Its governorship candidate is a former deputy governor of the state, Sa’ad Tahir who was a former governorship aspirant under the PDP and later defected to APC, from where he defected earlier this year to the NNPP upon its reinvigoration at the national level by Rabiu Kwnakwaso.
