The presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party for the 2023 general elections, Rabiu Kwankwaso, has thrown another insult at the Igbo People of Nigeria.
Kwankwaso insisted that Ndigbo are still at the bottom of national politics and as such can produce the president of Nigeria.
Speaking with newsmen, the former Kano governor said the Igbo should team up with his party – NNPP for a better chance of producing the next president of Nigeria in the nearest future.
He said, “I like people of the South-East so much that even this Kwankwasiyya you hear, many thought it is Okonkwo and Sons. They said because an Hausa man can’t say Okonkwo and sons, he now turned it to Kwankwaso.
“One thing the South-East must learn, in addition to many other things, is that the South-East is good in terms of business; very hard-working, industrious but one area they must learn is politics.
They are at the bottom line of national politics. If you look at the situation, they have lost out in the APC and the PDP. They have no presidential, no vice-presidential candidate. The only opportunity the South-East has to be president or vice president is with the NNPP.”
