The presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) Rabiu Kwankwaso says Nigerians now have alternatives to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the coming elections.
Kwankwaso stated this in Abuja on Monday, during the second presidential town hall meeting organised by the Department of Political Science of the University of Abuja.
The former Kano Governor Nigeria noted that Nigeria is facing a serious crisis in the education sector, from primary to tertiary education levels, noting that the APC and PDP have failed Nigerians.
“I am very happy that Nigerians have an alternative to the failure of All Progressives Congress and Peoples Democratic Party,” he said.
“In our manifesto, we said once you pass JAMB, it will stay for four years. You don’t need to go and sit for that examination again because we believe government must take responsibility to ensure that sons and daughters of the poor are all given equal opportunities to go to university.
“So, our own belief is education, education and education,” he added.
In his remarks, the Vice Chancellor of UNIABUJA, Prof Abdul-Rasheed Na’Allah, enjoined all the presidential candidates to come and speak to Nigerians about why they want to rule the country.
