“No merger talks, well it’s too late for mergers but there is no talk of collapsing the campaign, his campaign, or the NNPP campaign at any level at the moment with any of the party or any of the candidate, that is not on the card yet."

"We're focused on 2023 election" - Kwankwaso

Johnson said the NNPP is focused on the general elections and will remain the party’s core until 23 February 2023.

He said his principal would be going all out as it was too late for a merger, and there were no plans for his principal to step down.

Johnson said:

“Senator Kwankwaso is contesting, we are going all the way, that I can tell you.”

Johnson further noted that the rumours making the rounds are perpetrated by mischievous entities.

He, however, noted that the NNPP and Senator Kwankwaso are open to offers from any party willing to work with them.

“We will listen to any of them who think they want to work with us not us working with them”, he added.

While reacting to the general notion that the 2023 general election is a three-horse race between the ruling party, APC and the opposition, PDP and Labour Party, Johnson said the media had played a part in it.

He said:

“I have told a lot of my friends in the press that you can’t call elections in Nigeria without knowing what is going on elsewhere in the core north. We have made that mistake many, many times.”

Johnson further noted that the narrative will certainly change when the NNPP and Kwankwaso commence proper activities next week.
