Why Merger With Peter Obi’s Labour Party Collapsed – NNPP

New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), has revealed why alliance talks between its presidential candidate, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, and his Labour Party (LP) counterpart, Peter Obi, collapsed.

Gatekeepers News reports that NNPP National Chairman, Prof Rufai Alkali explained that the talks about a merger fell apart because the LP camp insisted that NNPP concedes the presidency to them.

He disclosed this while speaking with reporters at the NNPP’s secretariat yesterday in Abuja.

“A technical committee was set up to work out the alliance.

“But for the eight hours that they met, the LP camp said just one thing; that Kwankwaso should concede the presidency to Obi, that it was the time of the South East to become the president,” Alkali said.

According to Alkali, the LP camp agreed that Kwankwaso was a good candidate, but said it was the turn of the South East to produce Nigeria’s next President.

The NNPP Chairman alleged that the Obi camp leaked the deliberations on social media while the alliance negotiations were ongoing, which led to the collapse of the alliance talks.

He further stated that when there was a stalemate during the negotiation, the LP camp announced to the media that there was a breakdown in the talks.
