Peter Obi Speaks On Discussion With Atiku, Possible Alliance Against APC

Peter Obi, the presidential candidate for the Labour Party (LP), has denied claims that he has discussed forming an alliance with Atiku Abubakar, the candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

In an interview with BBC Hausa, the former vice president said that he is in talks with Peter Obi, the LP candidate for president, and that it is possible that Obi will give up his bid for the presidency in favor of him.

According to the former vice president, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso and Obi of the New Nigeria Peoples Party are not a threat to his presidential aspirations.

Although I see no threat in any of them, we are in talks, and the discussion might yield a positive result that will see one of them coming,” Atiku told the interviewer.

Speaking for Peter Obi on Wednesday, the Obi-Datti campaign organisation spokesperson, Yunusa Tanko, said those making the alliance claim are just trying to exploit Obi’s popularity.

He told The PUNCH:

“As of yesterday, before we left Numan, there was nothing of such nature. We are busy with campaigns. We are not aware of anything like an alliance.

“I think somebody is just trying to cash out on the Obi-Datti ticket. We are right now campaigning in Sokoto and we will be in Zamfara.”
