Presidential aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, has begged his fellow aspirants, including Atiku Abubakar, Senator Bukola Saraki, Sule Lamido and others to unite in order to defeat what he called “common enemy,” the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2019 general elections.
Addressing party supporters at the PDP secretariat in Minna, Niger state today, Wednesday, Kwankwaso said: “all contestants and other stakeholders should unite in the general interest of our party and country.”
He also called on PDP’s leadership to be fair to all aspirants during its forthcoming primaries by ensuring level playing field for all, even as he remained silent on the issue of consensus, but promised to support whoever emerges as the party’s candidate.
Kwankwaso said that he regretted supporting President Muhammadu Buhari during the 2015 presidential election, saying: “we sought for change in 2015 and along the line, I realised the change only brought about more killings, hunger, under-development, poverty and unemployment.
“I will not support or remain in that type of change that is why I am back to the PDP to change the change that has brought untold hardship on Nigerians.”
