‘I regret bringing APC to power in 2015’
The New Nigeria People’s Party, NNPP, gubernatorial candidate for the 2023 election in Kaduna State, Senator Suleiman Othman Hunkuyi, has expressed regret for campaigning and bringing the All Progressive Congress, APC, to power in Kaduna state in 2015.
Hunkuyi who spoke at an interactive session with representatives of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) in the state, admitted that he made a mistake.
He that apart from working for APC at the state level, he also worked relentlessly for the party at the national level in 2015 to ensure Buhari’s victory.
“It’s not something to regret about, because every human being is bound to make an error in life,” he said.
“When God created Adam, He told him what not to do, but he failed. In 2013, 2014, I felt that Nasir El-rufai would make a very good governor for Kaduna State. That was my conviction. I felt that Muhammadu Buhari would make a very very good President in 2015. That was my conviction. Nobody foresaw that,” Hunkuyi said.
“From my belief and what I believe, I was paraded handcuffed and flown in a helicopter because I stood my ground for the election of Muhammadu Buhari in 2015. That was the way I believed. It was a conviction. But it was an error because of human mind, the behaviour of man is unpredictable.
“So when I came back in 2019 and I went around 22 local government areas, I stood up with a microphone and I told the people that if you elect Nasir El-Rufa’i and Buhari, you do so at your own peril.
“Another reason why I came back and remain in politics is because my big brother said he has retired me from politics and I am out of politics. But I came back also to remove all misfits in government by 2023 by the special grace of God because they were brought in by ill wind of the people. I will flush out all the misfits in government.”
