0 805

The presidential candidate of the New Nigeria People Party (NNPP), Rabiu Kwankwaso, has confirmed that his party is in possible merger talks with Labour Party and its presidential candidate, Peter Obi, ahead of the 2023 general elections.

In an interview with BBC Hausa, Kwankwaso confirmed that discussions were ongoing on how both parties could form a coalition and work together ahead of next year.

Kwankwaso was quoted saying:

“It is true we are in talks with Peter Obi and a committee is working to look into how to form a merger between us. Friends and family are being up and doing talking about the merger arrangement. The merger is important because as you can see both the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) did not pick their running mates from the South-east’.”
