The presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, has said he would accept the outcome of the upcoming general election even if it does not favour him.

The former Kano State governor stated this on Monday at a town hall meeting with staff and students of the University of Abuja (UNIABUJA).

Kwankwaso said he would accept the outcome of the election if the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) conducts a free and fair polls.

Kwankwaso said: “I have no problem with accepting losing election. The best way to accept the 2023 election is by doing the right thing – free, fair and of course credible election.

“We have decided and it’s there in our blueprint that we will tackle the issue of insecurity. We are very angry that today, as we’re sitting here, we have so many people, young men and women being kidnapped.

“We will give a lot of opportunity to the young men and women to serve this country as members of the armed forces, members of the police, members of the DSS and so on.”
