Ladipo Johnson, the spokesperson of the presidential campaign of Rabiu Kwankwaso has stated the former Kano State governor is not ready to step down for anybody.
He made the comment on Channels Television Sunrise Daily on Wednesday amid speculations that the New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP) standard bearer will collapse his campaign for another person.
“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,” he said on the show.
“What I mean when I say not yet is that we are going all the way to February 25 next year.
“As I said, we are focused on the elections. If you have the elections and as people are realising or postulating, there might be a situation for the first time where you do not have an outright winner, then you all have to talk to each other.
“So, no one takes that off the table, but as it were for the first game, to use a football term, Senator Kwankwaso is contesting, we are going all the way, that I can tell you,” Johnson added.
He accused those who keep saying that Kwankwaso will collapse his structure for other candidates of being mischievous.
“I can tell you for certain that these rumours started months ago, so it’s not out of what they see now, it is out of mischief and we have treated this several times, and I keep saying that he has no reason to want to step down for any of the other candidates. But we will listen to any of them who think they want to work with us not us working with them.”
