Dr Alhaji Rabiu Kwankwaso the presidential candidate of the New Nigerian People’s Party has stated that Northerners will not vote for the labour party Presidential candidate Peter Obi because of Biafra issues:
Kwankwaso made this statement on Sunday when he appeared on Sunday Politics program on Channels Television.
According to him, he said that there are many issues in the south east, including the Biafra agitation by the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB adding that northern voter believe he is better with one united Nigeria than a divided Nigeria.
“Unfortunately, there are many issues in the South East, and a northern voter is the worst-hit in this issue of maladministration in this country,” he asserted.
“But even under that circumstance, a northern voter also believes that he is better with one united Nigeria.
“Therefore, most of the things that are happening in the South, especially in the South East; people are not comfortable with that and as long as you have somebody from there in any party, it will be very difficult for the northern voters to vote, and that is the situation now.”
“The problem is who become Presidential candidate and Vice. A lot of things are happening in South East, people are being killed and every Monday businesses closed and some people feel they are marginalised that is why I want them to be relevant in next Government.
“Our people from North are not happy with some activities in South East therefore Northerners will not vote anyone from South East in any party as presidential candidate.
“Some people should understand the politics and voting pattern in this country and no region can produce President alone and Labour Party cannot win Elections.
