Rabiu Kwankwaso, the presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) for the 2023 elections, has announced his running mate as Edo-born Bishop Isaac Idahosa.
The announcement was made on the party’s official Twitter account, revealing that Kwankwaso has chosen Bishop Idahosa as his running mate for the 2023 general elections.
On its Twitter handle, the party wrote: “Our VP Pastor Bishop Isaac Idahosa from Edo State.”
Kwankwaso’s choice comes after he failed to get the presidential candidate of the Labour Party and former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi to be his running mate.
Bishop Idahosa from Edo State is the Senior Pastor of God First Ministry, also known as Illumination Assembly, with its headquarters in Lagos.
He is a gospel singer who is popularly known as ‘Prophet Talk Na Do’ by his congregation.
