Wike Hosts Kwankwaso, Fayose In Port Harcourt

Advertisements

The presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Rabiu Kwankwaso, on Friday, paid a courtesy visit to Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, in Port Harcourt.

Also present at the meeting was former Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose.

Although the purpose of the meeting was not made open, it may not be unconnected with the 2023 general elections.

Kwankwaso, who defected from the People’s Democratic Party’s presidential primary in May, emerged as the sole presidential candidate of the NNPP.

He has been locked in a prolonged negotiation with Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, exploring the possibility of a merger.

While Kwankwaso had publicly stated he would like Obi to join the NNPP and be his running mate, Obi had neither rejected the idea nor accepted it.

But the talks are believed to have been bogged down, especially by the knotty issue of who, between the two presidential candidates, would step down to become the running mate of the other.

Kwankwaso’s meeting with Wike may, however, be an indication that the former Kano State governor is looking for alternatives.

THEWILL gathered that the inability of Kwankwaso/Obi alliance has prompted Kwankwaso’s courting of Wike.

Wike has remained quiet about the activities of the PDP since he was defeated at the party’s presidential primary.
