The presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, has told BBC Hausa that his party is in talks with his Labour Party, LP, counterpart, Peter Obi on a possible merger.
Kwankwaso and Obi are exploring the possibility of cooperation in the 2023 elections, in terms of a possible merger between NNPP and LP, Daily Post reports.
“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,” Kwankwaso said.
On Friday, Obi named former presidential spokesman, Doyin Okupe, as his running mate.
