Kwankwaso and Peter Obi Merger Closer as NNPP Executive Raises Hope
The national publicity secretary of the New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP), Dr. Agbo Major has given an update on the alliance talks with the Labour Party.
Major claims that either of Dr. Rabiu Kwankwaso and Peter Obi may agree to be the other’s running mate.
He further stated that Nigerians will be happy with the end result after discussions are concluded.
The presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, Rabiu Kwankwaso, on Saturday, disclosed that his party was discussing a possible alliance with the Labour Party and its presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
Kwankwaso’s announcement comes on the same day when Peter Obi was said to be considering a young northerner as his running mate for the 2023 election.
Meanwhile, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, continued his search for a substantive running mate.
Both Peter Obi and Tinubu named place-holding running mates on Friday to beat the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) deadline for the submission of candidate names.
Tinubu named Alhaji Ibrahim Kabir Masari as his placeholder running mate, while Peter Obi picked Dr Doyin Okupe.
According to the INEC schedule, candidates have until August to substitute the placeholder nominees with substantive vice presidential candidates.
