Some New Nigeria Peoples Party candidates running for seats in the Osun State House of Assembly in the general elections of 2023 have announced intentions to conduct a massive rally in favor of Bola Tinubu, the APC’s presidential candidate.
The proposal was disclosed in a statement signed by eight other NNPP House of Assembly candidates and collected in Osogbo on Monday by Muideen Afolabi, the party’s candidate for the Ifelodun State Constituency.
Afolabi bemoaned that with less than two months until the 2023 elections, the NNPP had not been organizing a campaign for the party’s presidential candidate, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, or other candidates running in the state. He added that those organizing Tinubu’s rally in the state had also started a door-to-door campaign for him.
He further said, “in collaboration with other National Assembly candidates who earlier dumped Kwankwaso, nine of us, House of Assembly candidates are set to organize a mega rally for Tinubu where masses of Osun would be convinced on why they should support him.
“Less than 2 months to the 2023 polls, NNPP has not been campaigning for the presidential candidate of the party, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso and other candidates contesting the poll in Osun. We can’t wait any longer.
“We commend Secretary, Tinubu/Shetimma Presidential Campaign Council, Hon. James Abiodun Faleke, for always giving them listening ears and for embarrassing us, having discovered our ability to deliver Osun for Tinubu.”
