2023: More bad news for APC, PDP, as Obi gets fresh boost

The popularity of Labour party's presidential candidate, and former governor of Anambra State, Mr Peter Obi, is already giving the nation's top political parties, the APC and PDP, sleepless nights. But, it appears things would only get worse for the top parties as presidential candidate for the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, concedes to Obi's popularity by seeking an alliance between the two parties.

Kwankwaso in an interview with BBC Hausa Service on Saturday, disclosed that his party is in talks with Obi, in a bid to join forces to dislodge the ruling party, and as well deny the Peoples Democratic Party a chance to regain back power.

He said: “We are really talking to Peter Obi, or at least saying that the committee is working to look into the matter (and cooperate with him), and friends and family are coming to talk to us about it.”

Also, the NNPP, in a Tweet corroborated the former Kano State governor’s statement.

The Tweet read: “We wish to inform Nigerians that, our discussions with #PeterObi and the #LabourParty are still ongoing.

“Special committee was set to discuss arrangements. We hope for good results that will give Nigeria a chance to be alive, once again.” the tweet read.

“Before now, there had been calls for presidential candidates, Rabiu Kwankwaso and Peter Obi to work together in the coming election.

Kwankwaso and Obi were chieftains of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), until earlier in the year when they dumped the party for PDP and LP.
