Former Kano state Governor and Presidential aspirant under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso has disclosed that the change he and others who followed and supported President Muhammed Buhari envisaged in 2015 was the greatest mistake made.
He said on Wednesday while addressing the Niger state PDP faithful and supporters at the party state secretariat in Minna that the much talked about change only brought hunger, killings and unemployment.
According to him “the 2015 change was a very big mistake; we sought for a change in 2015 and along the line, I realised the change only brought about more killings, hunger, underdevelopment, poverty and unemployment.
“I will not support or remain in that type of change, that is why I am back to the PDP to change the change that has brought untold hardship on Nigerians”.
Speaking on clamour for consensus by the party national executives, Kwankwaso said that he will not ascend to it but that whoever emerges after the primaries will get maximum support.
He further urged Nigerians to embrace and open their doors wide for the ‘Kwankwasiya’ group, adding that “we are known for integrity and productivity”.
Earlier, the former Governor of Kano state was in a closed door meeting with former Nigeria Military President, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida.
The Presidential aspirant who was heralded by a mammoth crowd adorned with the popular ‘Kwankwansiya’- red cap in Minna, the Niger state capital.
Kwankwaso who arrived Minna at about 1:10pm and followed by okada and keke riders, left 3pm.
