The presidential aspirant regretted supporting President Muhammadu Buhari during the 2015 presidential election, saying the gesture was a mistake he is not willing to make again in his political life.
He said the APC-led administration has failed to address the challenges that gave birth to the formation of a mega party, adding that “this is not the change I supported.
“We sought for change in 2015 and along the line, I realised the change only brought about more killings, hunger, under-development, poverty and unemployment.

“I will not support or remain in that type of change, that is why I am back to the PDP to change the change that has brought untold hardship on Nigerians.”
The aspirant that complained about the state of infrastructure across the country, said he was particularly angry about the state of Minna-Suleja road which according to him, was a good example of the APC’s idea of change.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had reported that Senator Kwankwaso urged President Buhari to name the weak and selfish politicians that dumped the APC.
The former Kano state governor and presidential aspirant on the platform of the PDP said this while reacting to Buhari's speech in which said the president said former members of the APC who defected are weak and selfish politicians.
Buhari was recently quoted as saying that: “The weakest whose sense of expectation do not align with our vision have exited our party. We now have a party of strong and patriotic people who are ready to work for a strong Nigeria.”
