Kwankwaso not under EFCC probe – NNPP debunk reports

The Kano state Chairman of the New Nigeria People’s Party, (NNPP), Alhaji Hashimu Dungurawa has the reports of the party’s 2023 presidential candidate, Rabiu Kwankwaso, being under investigation are untrue.

He spoke while addressing newsmen and claimed that the political rivals fighting Kwankwaso were behind the reports, adding that the detractors can’t stop the destiny.

It was reported earlier that the anti-graft agency was probing former governor Kano state, Kwankwaso over alleged N2.5 billion fraud.

However, the NNPP chieftain dismissed it, saying; “We have been seeing this kind of rumour several times on different occasions.

“Let them continue with the rumour. Whether they like it or not, Kwankwaso remains the only person with integrity, respect, popularity, and capacity to govern this country.

“The rumour came from an enemy, shared by ignorance, and accepted by a fool. Thank God that we are not all three. We are his lovers, we are not ignorant of his doing, and we are not fools.

“All these will not stop his destiny. But they should be mindful that rumours don’t add any value; instead, they will generate popularity for him.”
