The presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Rabiu Kwankwaso, has said he was more academically qualified than other candidates contesting the 2023 presidential election.
Kwankwaso said some of the presidential candidates have questionable academic credentials and should not be seen contesting for any elective office in the country.
The former Governor of Kano State stated this on Tuesday during a workshop on social media training for party officials ahead of the 2023 general election.
Kwankwaso, represented by the party’s Kano North Senatorial District candidate, Abdullahi Bichi, said his education is verifiable. He is the most educationally qualified among every candidate contesting for President.
Bichi said: “Kwakwanso’s education is verifiable. He is the most educationally qualified among every candidate contesting for President.
“When Kwankwaso was governor of Kano, he set up universities where both the children of the rich and the poor attended school without paying.
“Today, you can hardly take a flight in Nigeria without finding a beneficiary of Kwankwaso’s contributions in the Kano State education system working as a flight attendant, or as something else there.”
NNPP’s Message Needs To Be Loud
The national chairman of the NNPP, Prof. Rufai Alkali, urged members of the party to propagate the party’s message so loud so that others can hear and see it.
He, however, warned them against going foul of existing cyber laws, adding that participants must follow due process.
Alkali also maintained that the NNPP’s cyber tigers must also use other media to reach out to voters as “the vast majority of Nigerians don’t depend on the social media for news.”
“In most parts of the north, people depend on their transistor radios for news. So, we must also be able to reach those who’re not on social media,” he said.
