Rabiu Kwankwaso, the presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, has claimed that the success he achieved as governor of Kano will be reproduced across Nigeria if he is elected president.
Kwankwaso made the remarks on Monday in Abuja, at the second presidential town hall meeting organized by the University of Abuja’s Department of Political Science.
He noted that Nigeria is in the midst of a terrible education crisis, from school to postsecondary education levels, and that the All Progressive Congress and Peoples Democratic Party have failed Nigerians.
“I am very happy that Nigerians have an alternative to the failure of All Progressives Congress and Peoples Democratic Party,” he said.
He noted that the issue of education is critical, and his administration will address it squarely.
“In our manifesto, we said once you pass JAMB, it will stay for four years. You don’t need to go and sit for that examination again because we believe government must take responsibility to ensure that sons and daughters of the poor are all given equal opportunities to go to university.
“So, our own belief is education, education and education,” he added.
