Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, flagbearer of the New Nigerian Peoples Party says leaders of the PDP are not men of integrity.

The former Minister of Defence who was a guest of Governor Wike said it was as a result of their propensity to bend rules that he left the party.

Kwankwaso said it was regrettable that Wike who has worked tirelessly for the sustenance of the PDP is just coming to know how the party leaders operate.

The presidential candidate who was speaking at the commissioning of the Mgbuitanwo internal roads said that as the nation’s Defence Minister,  he moved for an increase in the number of Nigerian  soldiers.

According to him, the measure was taken in order to ensure that the military has the capability of defending the country’s  sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Wike is one of us

Kwankwaso, leader of the Kwankwasiya movement, says Wike is one of them.

The former Governor who described himself as a foundation member of the PDP has explained that although  Wike may not wear the red cap of the Kwankwasiya, he is one of them.

Kwankwaso disclosed that there are people who wear the red cap of the Kwankwasiya in their hearts.

He said the Kwankwasiya believe in hardwork, the deliberate upliftment of their state country, protection of the helpless and downtrodden as well as the promotion of national stability and progress.

This same Party

Kwankwaso recalled how this same party refused to understand the threat that the exit of five governors in his time posed to the party.

He said that the PDP was making the same mistake now with the members of the G5.

The NNPP candidate revealed that the PDP appeared to think that it was dealing with five persons instead of a movement of party men who are unhappy with events in their party.
