Following inquiries on who would deputise the other in the case of Rabiu Kwankwaso and Peter Obi, should there be a merger between the New Nigerians Peoples Party (NNPP) and Labour Party, the former has reacted.
The national publicity secretary of the NNPP, Agbo Major, said that negotiations on the alliance between the two parties are going on smoothly.
Daily Trust reports that Major affirmed that Kwankwaso, a former governor of Kano state and lawmaker at the National Assembly may accept being a running mate to Obi who is the presidential candidate for the Labour Party.
Major added that talks between the two key parties that have been described by many as the possible third force that could rescue Nigeria are still underway.
Although noting that he would not want to speculate on the possible outcome of the talks, Major added that either Kwankwaso or Obi could accept to become each other’s vice.
His words: “By the time we are done with the discussions, Nigerians will be happy, whichever way it turns out to be.”
