Dez Mayorz Report.
The chances of an alliance between former Peter Obi and Rabiu Kwankwaso seem impossible contrary to what many had expected An associate of Obi, Dr. Doyin Okupe said the talks with New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) made no headway since about four weeks ago He accused NNPP officials of hammering on the issue even when the Labour Party has since pulled out of the negotiations.
FCT, Abuja – Labour Party (LP) chieftain, Dr Doyin Okupe, has said the LP/NNPP alliance talks collapsed about a month ago. Speaking on Channels Television, Okupe said the merger failed because Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso of the NNPP insisted on being the presidential flagbearer.
He said during coalition talks he had asked the NNPP leadership if it was fair to field Kwankwaso, a northerner, of which the NNPP leadership said there was nothing wrong with that.
Okupe revealed that LP is now looking at a young running mate of northern extraction.
