The presidential candidate of the New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP), Rabiu Kwankwaso, has said that there is a consideration for the party to pick its Vice-Presidential candidate from the Southern region of Nigeria in 2023.
Kwankwaso, a former governor of Kano State, spoke on Monday on Channels Television’s Politics Today, monitored by Newsbreak.
“After the Convention, then the party will sit down and look around and see if we can have a very good credible somebody who has capacity, somebody who is acceptable, as the Vice-President of the NNPP from the Southern part of the country,” he said.
Kwankwaso, until March, was a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Kwankwaso left the PDP with some of his allies, including the PDP governorship candidate in Kano State in 2019, Abba Kabir, who earlier announced his resignation from the PDP and has since joined the NNPP, which is gaining popularity in Kano State.
