I Regret Bringing APC To Power – Hunkuyi

Hunkuyi says he I Regret Bringing APC To Power

The New Nigeria People’s Party, NNPP, gubernatorial candidate for the 2023 election in Kaduna State, Senator Suleiman Othman Hunkuyi, has said that he made a mistake in campaigning and bringing the All Progressive Congress, APC, to power in Kaduna state in 2015.

But the All Progressives Congress Campaign Council in Kaduna State has replied Hunkuyi, saying he was a self acclaimed godfather who never won an election since he became chairman of Makarfi Local Government Area during the Babangida regime, but rode on the Malam Nasir El Rufai’s popularity to be elected Senator in 2015.

The State APC Campaign Council in a statement by the Director of Strategic Communication, Ibraheem Musa, said the APC Gubernatorial candidate of Kaduna State, Senator Uba Sani will not only defeat Hunkuyi but will nail his final political coffin in the 2023 governorship election.

On his own part, Hunkuyi who spoke at an interactive session with representatives of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) in the state, said 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.

According to Hunkuyi, “The socio-economic situation in Kaduna State is not palatable, but we don’t have any other State that belongs to us than Kaduna State…I didn’t want to pursue politics beyond 2019 because personally I wanted to do something else. And also dedicate attention and time to my little children and my extended family. I did not want to be part of 2023 politics.”

APC To Power

“But for so many reasons, among them, one, nobody get up and become honest without taking antecedent by the current administration of APC in Kaduna State and in Nigeria without possibly bringing in the name of PDP.”

“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.”

“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.”

“Reason number two why I decided to remain in government is because I want to fix the wreckage inflicted on the financial status of Kaduna State”.

“I am not a novice in politics, there is danger lurking ahead because this government is by default.I can tell you that 90 percent of the people in this hall did not want Nasir El-Rufai to come back in 2019 election. Did he not come back? That is government by default.”

“Let me give you the arithmetic, simple, 4 million or 4.2 million voters were registered in 2019, but 1.8 million people came out to vote. There were two parties. Out of 4.2 million voters, only 1.8 million came out to vote. Majority did not come out, the minority are for the majority, the least minority decided to go for the majority because out of 1.8 million that came out to vote, 800 of them said no to El-rufai, they said no APC. If you take that 800 and add to 2.7 million that refused to come out, they have not only added to the votes, but helped to form a government for El-rufai. That is government by default.”

“We should allow matured democracy to happen. Government by default also happened in USA, and so by default Donald Trump won the election.”
