The presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Rabiu Kwankwaso has debunked reports that he will step down from the presidential race ahead of the polls in 2023.

This comes after rife rumors that the presidential candidate seeks an alliance with the presidential candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, and Bola Tinubu of the All Progressive Congress, APC.

He described the elements behind the claims as being mischievous.

Kwankwaso made the comments to journalists in Maiduguri, Borno State, on Sunday, August 28 while insisting that the report of an alliance with other parties was rubbish.

According to Kwankwaso: “Some people are terribly mischievous and I don’t see how any of these four political parties at this critical time will accept joining one another.

“Some elements are making mischievous postings and insults on social media, but we believe in sportsmanship, and we are out for a good campaign.

“To say NNPP will join or withdraw for APC or PDP is absolutely rubbish; it can’t happen.”
