2023 Election: Kwankwaso Finally Dumps PDP
Kwankwaso expresses reservation about Tinubu, Shettima ticket

Presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) has lauded the choice of his All Progressives Congress (APC) counterpart, Bola Tinubu’s, running mate.

Recall that Tinubu had on Sunday announced Kashim Shettima, former Borno governor, as his running mate.

Speaking during an interview on Arise TV on Sunday, Kwankwaso said he likes Tinubu and Shettima combination.

He, however, stated that he did not know what they would do differently from the current administration.

He also noted that he would have preferred for Tinubu to be president if could not but his grouse was the platform he was running.

“My only worry is the platform. This platform I don’t know. I know he is a strategist, Bola Tinubu, he is a good man. I had reasons to sit with him uncountable number of times from 1992 to date,” he said.

“I wish I will see him to ask him what he will tell Nigerians what he will do differently from what Muhammadu Buhari is doing today.

“That is my serious concern for him. Ordinarily, if I cannot get it, I can recommend him but it’s going to be like building something on zero.

“When I see him, I wish him well or when you see him before me, tell him I wish him well — but let’s take it easy.”
