Peter Obi Could Have Been My Running Mate — Kwankwaso

Former governor of Kano State, North West Nigeria, Rabiu Kwankwaso says Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party, could have become his running mate if the latter had joined the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP).

Gatekeepers News reports that Kwankwaso said this during an interview on Channels Television.

Asked if there Obi was approached on joining NNPP, Kwankwaso said he discussed national issues with the former Anambra governor a few days before he joined LP.

“Well, actually, we had the opportunity to talk to ourselves on many national issues until a few days to the time when he declared for the Labour Party of which now he is the presidential candidate,” he said.

“I wish him well and I wish all other presidential candidates well. I’m sure this (presidential election) will be decided by the people across the country who are going to vote on 25th February 2023.”

Asked if he would have considered Peter Obi as his running mate, the former Kano governor said many people suggested the idea.

“Many people just suggested that. I believe that it could have been possible if not because he joined another party. Now, he is already a candidate as we have seen from the news now. We look forward to seeing what happens in the next few weeks,” he added.
