"I have approved the appointment of Hon Abdulmumin Jibrin and Barr. Ladipo Johnson as spokespersons for my campaign council.

Some said he is no longer in the 2023 race and others encouraged him.
"Are you still in the race? Thought you negotiated with Baba Agbado."
"You have fizzled out. The race is between Peter Obi and the ruling party."
"So what will Abdulmumin Jibrin say about Tinubu; the man he marketed up till about 2 months ago?
"Mr Kwakwanso, just agree you are an extension of Tinubu’s camp."
"Please I beg you Sir...don't step down for anybody...grab as many as possible votes you can get from the North.....abeg just dont collapse your structure....I love you..."
"You don't know politics bro.
"Put more pressure in ur investment."
"I've never seen a man that is far from reality like kwankwaso. except you still don't know that Abdulmumin Jibril is working for Tinubu. or are you working for Tinubu?
"They are all working together. The job now is to break the northern vote atiku should get, so atiku don't beat tinubu in the north with a wide margin."
"Kwankwaso go and contest for Senate or house of representative, Ganduje will deal with you in Kano."
"I am OBIdient but I can also support any other party aside APC or PDP. No way for BATIKU."
Kwankwaso promises ex-Kano governor juicy positions if he stays with NNPP
The presidential candidate of the New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP), Rabiu Kwankwaso, has promised former governor of Kano, Ibrahim Shakarau, more prestigious positions if he stands by the party.
Kwankwaso was reacting to the rumour that Shekarau may defect to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) over an alleged failure to fulfil the terms of the agreement the duo had before Shekarau joined the NNPP.
The presidential hopeful, denying having a rift with the senatorial candidate, explained why the party could not meet one of the requests of the Shekarau’s camp.
