Some candidates seeking seats in the Osun State House of Assembly on the platform of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), have disclosed plans to hold a mega rally in support of Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate.
The plan was unveiled by Muideen Afolabi, the party’s candidate for Ifelodun State Constituency, in a statement he signed on behalf of eight other NNPP House of Assembly candidates, obtained in Osogbo on Monday.
Afolabi, who lamented that less than two months to the 2023 polls, NNPP has not been campaigning for the presidential candidate of the party, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso and other candidates contesting the poll in the state, added that those planning the rally for Tinubu in the state had also commenced door-to-door campaign for him.
He further said, “in collaboration with other National Assembly candidates who earlier dumped Kwankwaso, nine of us House of Assembly candidates are set to organize a mega rally for Tinubu where masses of Osun would be convinced on why they should support him.
“Less than 2 months to the 2023 polls, NNPP has not been campaigning for the presidential candidate of the party, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso and other candidates contesting the poll in Osun. We can’t wait any longer.
“We commend Secretary, Tinubu/Shetimma Presidential Campaign Council, Hon. James Abiodun Faleke, for always giving them listening ears and for embarrassing us, having discovered our ability to deliver Osun for Tinubu.”
