Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) has reached out to its members in the diaspora in a bid to strengthen the chances of the party ahead of the formal commencement of campaigns for the 2023 general elections.
Vice Presidential candidate of the party, Bishop Isaac Idahosa, disclosed the information to The Sun when he met with large number of party members and other supporters of the party residents in the United States.
Similarly, members of the Kwankwasiyya movement in the United States and students under the scholarship of Dr. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, the NNPP Presidential candidate for the 2023 elections also joined in welcoming Bishop Idahosa to the US.
A statement from Bishop Idahosa indicated that the move was aimed to galvanizing all the support that would increase the chances of NNPP in the forthcoming general elections.
He said: “It’s an opportunity to sell the party and the agenda of its presidential candidate in the 2023 elections to the world. The world need to understand that NNPP has a tested and trusted presidential candidate who has the answer to the problems of Nigeria.
“However, it was an impressive reception for me from Nigerians who are obviously tired of the bad leadership in Nigeria, and couldn’t wait for Dr. Kwankwaso to take over the mantle of leadership in Nigeria.
“Large number of party members, well wishers, party supporters and lots of students who are on scholarship in US came out en mass to welcome me, and we had fruitful meetings that would soon translate to result.”
Bishop Idahosa said that students under the scholarship of Dr. Kwankwaso were full of appreciation and gratitude to God for the opportunity, assuring him of their support to any cause that would guarantee the success of the party, not only at the federal level but across the states and legislative elections.
He said that a student, Mustapha Usman Baba from Kano State, a Kwankwasiyya Scholar presently doing PhD Program at
Morgan State University, Baltimore Maryland USA, informed him that aside TETFund sponsored scholars, there are lots of students in the school and beyond from Kwankwasiyya movement.
