The New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP) one of the core parties that have been making waves in Nigeria by engaging people from ward level to national level have come out and made it clear that they are not collapsing their structure for any political party. This position was made known by Bishop Isaac Idahosa who is the running mate to Kwankwaso during a media chat with journalists at the ARISE TV.
When asked about their openness to partnership with other parties, Idahosa said “well, it is not that we aren’t open to social partnership for those that will want to play second fiddle. We are open to that. We are the big deal and party to beat. We are more than able to go into this rate and we are the party to bit in this party. Our doors are open but for those that want to be second fiddle and we are going into this rate to win. Saying that we are collapsing our structure is an insult, disgusting and treacherous to us.
He added that “We have been able to pass the message which is biting the country and revamping the economy and having empathy to the downtrodden. This isn’t the time to give up and we are getting stronger by the day. We have so much to give. So fielding unfounded rumours are economical to the truth. We have strength in education and infrastructure. Our principal has done it before in the area of infrastructure and education. He united Kano state.”
The clergy queried people peddling fake news rather than focusing on their campaign strategies and this is unacceptable by them, in his words he added that “Why can’t people keep by the single rule by pursuing peace. Our principal is healthy, we go from ward to ward and we are the big deal. Our doors are open to others. They can come in and we are talking with some members of PDP that want to join us.”
He emphasised that they are open to talk but will not play second fiddle and he talks will be based on how to move the nation forward. “I just told you that 13 PDP members want to join forces with us. When i told you that our doors are opened to others, i meant it. We are open to transparency, justice, equity and fairness. A country that will observe the rule of law to the latter. My principal has done these before and we are good enough to keep our words. When you know what you want to do, you don’t need to go the other way which is psychological complexities”, Idahosa concluded.
