How comes Peter Obi from far away South East bested Kwankwaso in 13 northern states–According to Abdullahi Abbas

 

According to reports, the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kano State informed Independent Nigeria that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu will not be facing competition in the state’s elections in 2027, but rather the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP). All Progressives Congress (APC) state chairman Alhaji Abdullahi Abbas refuted claims made by Hashimu Dungurawa, Kano State chairman of the National Popular Party (NNPP), that President Tinubu’s chances of winning reelection will be harmed by the ongoing emirship contest in a statement.CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>

According to Abbas, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso and the NNPP will be the ones to suffer the most from the political turmoil caused by the Emirship dispute. In light of what he saw as the present administration’s shortcomings in the state, he noted that the APC is more united and popular than ever before, and that it is well-positioned to see a substantial increase in its backing in the upcoming presidential election in Kano State.

Dungurawa made some comments, and Abbas reacted by saying that the NNPP’s accusations were an indication of party discontent. He brought attention to the NNPP’s leadership problem and internal strife, focusing on Kwankwaso in particular, as proof of the party’s waning power and influence. In his criticism of Kwankwaso’s 2023 presidential campaign, Abbas implied that the candidate was more concerned with gaining local support and staying in the spotlight than with winning the presidency.

In the 2023 presidential election, Abbas described Kwankwaso’s performance as an elected official, pointing out that he received 1,454,649 votes—6.23% of the total—with the vast bulk of those votes coming from Kano State. Analysis of the results showed that Kwankwaso garnered less than 100,000 votes from outside of Kano, as he also pointed out, indicating that his support was weak.

Abbas went on to say that Kwankwaso fared poorly across the country, even though he had a large following in the North-West (where he received 1.2 million votes, or 19% of the total) during the election. He made a comparison to Peter Obi of the Labour Party, who fared better than Kwankwaso in other northern states, such as Borno, Kaduna, and Taraba, among others, showing that the NNPP was only successful in Kano State.

The opposition Labour Party presidential candidate from faraway South East, Peter Obi, defeated Kwankwaso in thirteen northern states: Kaduna, Taraba, Borno, Gombe, Kebbi, Kogi, Kwara, Niger, Sokoto, Nasarawa, Plateau, Adamawa, and Benue, he asked.CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
