The New Nigeria Peoples Party has said its presidential candidate, Rabiu Kwankwaso will not be standing as a running mate to Peter Obi, of the Labour Party, should both decide to merge as one.

National Publicity Secretary of the party, Dr Agbo Major, said this in a statement issued in Abuja, on Sunday.

He said, Kwankwaso has millions of actual supporters ready to elect him as president of Nigeria, adding promptly that it is an insult to suggest anything different.

“The report is misleading and embarrassing to our great party, its Presidential Candidate, Kwankwaso and millions of real supporters in Nigeria and in the diaspora,” he said.

Mr Agbo said there’s an ongoing talks between the NNPP and Labour Party, which has presented Mr Obi as its presidential candidate for 2023.

“As a mass movement, NNPP acknowledged alliance talks with Labour Party that would consolidate and boost the nation’s frail democracy as we collectively strive for a new Nigeria which the party champions,” it said.

“NNPP has never at any time said its esteemed Presidential Candidate Rabiu Musa kwankwaso could accept to be Labour Party, Peter Obi’s deputy,” the spokesman added.
