According to him, Northerners won’t vote for anyone from the South-East region of the country.
Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso has claimed that Northerners will not vote for anyone from the South East in the 2023 presidential election.
According to him, that’s whe he feels the Labour Party won’t be winning the 2023 presidential election.
Kwankwaso is a former Governor of Kano State and presidential candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party.
In an interview with Channels Television on Sunday July 3, Kwankwaso said Labour Party’s support is mainly from a particular zone and not the entire country.
He also claimed that Northerners won’t vote for anyone from the South-East region of the country.
The former Governor said;
“In PDP, they (South East) are completely out; so also in the APC. The only opportunity now is the NNPP. We are aware that on the social media, the young men and women of the south East extraction are working towards getting the presidency, but the facts on the ground is that even if the entire zone or any zone in this country decides to vote for a particular person, that person, going by the provision of our constitution can not be president. I think the Constitution is deliberate to ensure that everybody in the country is involved.
“Today, many people in the South East believe that they are being marginalised and it will even be worst, if they are not involved in the 2023 project. Labor Party as it stands today can not certainly win an election because the support is mainly from a particular zone and the figures there can not earn anybody a presidential position.
