APC has already lost election-Hunkuyi – VELOXNEWS


The governorship candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP, in Kaduna State, Senator Suleiman Uthman Hunkuyi has said that the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) has already lost the 2023 general elections because the people have lost confidence in the party and its members.

Hunkuyi said the APC has failed Nigerians with its harsh economic policy and Nigerians would pay the party back by pushing it out of power in 2023.

He said the APC has evened worsen its case by adopting  same faith ticket ahead of the 2023 general elections, stressing that the ruling party has already lost ideas of what to hang its campaign on.

Speaking to Reporters in Kaduna on Wednesday, Hunkuyi said looking at the dwindling profile of the APC against the NNPP, APC has already lost election.

“I’m talking not only as a politician but I’m talking as a realist. I told you structures don’t win election, goodwill does win election…Go back and ask the people, APC has lost election because they have lost the confidence of the people.

On the controversial Muslim-Muslim ticket, the NNPP gubernatorial candidate said ” this is the interesting part of politics. First of all, Hunkuyi will not do Muslim-Muslim ticket in Kaduna State. I won’t do it because as a detailed politician, I see and recognise the cosmopolity of my dear state. I recognise the interest of those Muslims and Christians. It is not the only way to go, so why should I go that way?.

“I want APC to lose election and they have taken the route to losing election. As far as I’m concerned, that helps my situation, that helps my party, that helps the Nigerian people because you cannot finish wrecking the economy of a nation the way APC does and today, come with the issue of religious fanatism. It won’t work, it can’t work, it is not correct, it won’t sail through.

“The fact of the matter is that Muslim or Christian today, you have to eat and to eat, you require food. Food on the table for Muslims and for Christians is the same price. One bag of maize is N15000, one bag of fertilizer is N32000 or N35000. Indeed, that is economics of the APC and that is to tell you whether they come with the Muslim-Muslim, whether they come with Christian-Christian, whether they come with Muslim-Christian or they come with Christian-Muslim ,APC will lose election because no matter what, because for Nigerians that isnot the first question for determination”.

”The PDP has ran this country for 16 or 18 years or thereabouts. After doing that, they came back, they apologized for their outing. Today, whether people are willing to go back to PDP or not, you know better.

“But like I said again, we had three parties, two candidates. Now we are having additional parties with may be, additional candidates. But some parties don’t have candidates, even if they have, they are moles.

“I contested for the ticket of the governorship of Kaduna State once in my life. That’s under the ANPP in 2003.All other attempts was to secure a ticket which, hitherto, the problem of internal democracy of these parties never allowed.

“Few people determine who to issue ticket to, and that’s part of the albatross of the PDP today. The emergence of people oriented ticket carrying members, the NNPP as a credible alternative platform.

“We decided to bring the structure of the NNPP fresh, new, take it to the people, put whosoever you desire as your chairman, your secretary, your organizing secretary, your women leader,…everybody come, put whoever you want within that ward, within that Local Government to lead the party.

“So also when we came for the primary election. We didn’t have that kind of rancour, that kind of injustices that we have seen where a sitting Senate President under a party would go and lynched a ticket belonging to somebody, and then come back to tell us that is democracy?.

“We have seen it. We’ve seen how Wike lost the ticket. Was it straightforward election? That is the PDP. Therefore as I havee told you, structures don’t win  elections ,the people determine who wins election and that is goodwill. Hunkuyi, Kwankwaso, the NNPP, we cash on our goodwill.”. He said.
