National Chairman of National Unity Party (NUP), Chief Perry Opara, has declared that a former Governor of Kano State, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, will win the 2019 presidential election if he runs.

Opara told newsmen in Abuja that defeating President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019 might be difficult but that a personality with clout like Kwankwaso would emege victorious.

He urged the Senator to run on the platform of the NUP, saying Nigerians were ready for new leadership.

“Buhari has a cult-like followership in the far North while Senator Kwankwaso has the strongest political movement that cuts across the nation”, Daily Trust quoted him as saying.

“If Kwankwaso decides to run for the presidency in 2019 on the NUP platform, and if he decides to take his vice presidential candidate from the South, particularly a devout Christian, humble, popular and young, he will win the 2019 presidential election.

“Senator Kwankwaso talks less, has a calm disposition, is less controversial and he does more work than he talks. He respects the young and the aged and flows freely with both genders,” he added.

Some top officials of Kwankwaso’s group, Kwankwasiyya Movement, had attended the NUP’s National Harmonisation and Integration’ meeting held in Abuja last Wednesday.
