Presidential Race: NNPP Advises Atiku, Tinubu To Withdraw Amidst Corruption & Drug Allegations

With thirty-seven days to the General Elections, The New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), has urged the presidential candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, and the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, to urgently withdraw from the race.

According to NNPP, severe charges of corruption and drug trafficking that have disgraced the 2023 general election led to calls for the withdrawal of both Atiku and Tinubu from the campaign for president.

A statement yesterday in Abuja by its National Publicity Secretary, Dr Agbo Major read: “Nigeria has been brought to ridicule and disrepute before the comity of nations over accusations of high-level corruption and drug peddling against Atiku and Tinubu. He that goes to equity must come with a clean hand

“NNPP demands the immediate withdrawal of both presidential candidates to answer to charges preferred against them in court. It is justice juxtaposed for them to continue in the presidential race with heavy allegations of wrongdoings on their shoulders. It is a moral burden fie the two candidates to continue in this race at a time Nigerians are looking for a younger and unblemished crop of leaders.

“There is no moral justification for Atiku and Tinubu to strive to rule the nation until the court decides their fates one way or the other. National interest supersedes personal interests, aggrandizement and grandstanding in the quest for a better, greater, progressive, equitable and just democratic nation.

“Nigerians are tired of recycled politicians who have numerous cases of corruption, drugs, birth/educational certificates, health and questionable source of wealth. Citizens want men and women of integrity, visionary, purposeful, resourceful, dynamic and transformational leaders to usher them to a new and better Nigeria we all desire and deserve.

“Senator (Engr) Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, PhD is the man of the moment to give Nigerians a new lease of life after years of wandering in political wilderness from the oppressive APC and PDP regimes.

“Eligible Nigerians should collect their PVCs now and let their voice be heard loud and clear in the forthcoming elections. Your vote is your power to elect credible, resourceful, courageous and progressive leaders that will deliver dividends of democracy to the masses not carnage.”
