Africa Independent Television (AIT) also noted Kwankwaso's displeasure.

Speaking on Monday, June 17, during the flag-off ceremony for the construction of 82 kilometres of rural road networks at his hometown in Madobi local government area (LGA), Kwankwaso said:

“In the build-up to 2027, some desperate politicians are already on a mission of disruption, but we will rather prefer the two of us to lose than to allow them to crush us unnecessarily. We dare anybody, who thinks he can victimise us politically, to go and be rest assured that we are ready for the fight.
“We are not afraid to be out of power because we will remain politicians in or out of government, we cannot run away from our destiny."
