Time will tell – Kwankwaso speaks on joining Tinubu’s government


Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, the presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP, in the 2023 election, has reacted to rumours that he is nursing the ambition of joining the All Progressives Congress, APC, government.

He said only time would tell if joining the present government would be possible.

“On the issue of joining the government only time can tell”, the former Kano State Governor told BBC Hausa on Friday.

He spoke while reacting to allegations that he allegedly reached an agreement with President Bola Ahmed Tinubu before the Supreme Court judgment that reinstated Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf’s victory.

Recall that contrary to the verdict of the Appeal Court, which had sacked the governor, the apex court declared on Friday that Yusuf of the NNPP won the March 11 gubernatorial election in Kano State.


There were insinuations that Kwankwaso, who is the national leader of the party, made an agreement with Tinubu prior to the Supreme Court judgement.

But Kwankwaso told BBC Hausa that there was no agreement with anybody, stressing that the Supreme Court judges only did what is right.

Kwankwaso said, “To the best of my knowledge, I have not reached an agreement with anybody.

“We founded the APC together and we participated fully in the struggles which followed up. People should know that a lie has a short life. Despite the machinations those people staged, the judges have done what is right”.

He, however, said the NNPP would work with the government of the ruling party when necessary.

“There is no problem. They have their party; we have our own. We will work together where necessary”.
